It was a rather slow start for the Guerillas as a well organized UPSA team gave UG a tough time to break their defensive set up.
It took lightning fast breaks and a couple of good shots to give Team UG a 18 – 05 lead before the 1st quarter ended.
Another fastbreak gave the Guerillas a 21 point lead but UPSA responded with their own break to send them to 07 points.
It was number 8 man, Fletcher, who pushed UG’s tally with another of his trademark – 3pointers.
UPSA’s fight saw them push their rally to 15. The 2nd quarter ended 33 – 15.
It was Treasure who opened UG’s account in the 3rd quarter while Junior made just one of his free throws to give UG an extended lead.
Junior made up for his earlier blush with a smart off the backboard finish bulldozing UG’s tally to 39.
Another Treasure 3 gave UG 42 points before Coach Gana called for timeout.
Meat Pie and Kpodo were the standout performers as UPSA gave UG a good fight.
57 – 31 – That’s how the score looked by the end of the 3rd quarter.
Team captain Aminu, opened UG’s account in the 4th quarter by finishing one of his free throws.
Aminu and Ferrour proved to be UG’s beasts of the quarter as they dominated in rebounds and even combined once to give UG 69 points.
A couple of turnovers mainly an end product of tiredness from both teams led to a reduction in the pace of the game.
73 – 41 in favour of the University of Ghana was the final score.
