Radford University College has clinched a big win over Marshalls University College in the quarterfinals of the 2019 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.

Radford University beat Marshalls 32-28 in Group B of this year’s quarterfinals taking place at the University of Ghana (UG) Central Court.

The win is Radford University’s first in the knockout stage of the UPAC Championship. Group B is regarded as the tougher of the two groups housing the quarterfinalists.

On the other hand, the loss represents a poor start from 2017 silver medal winners Marshalls University who need to win its next game against Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

KNUST beat two-time winners Accra Technical University (ATU) with the same result (32-28) in a very physical game that a lot of fouls. The game was unsurprisingly decided from the free throw line.

Radford takes on KNUST in a tough contest that could decide which team progresses to the semifinals.

This year’s UPAC is sponsored by CAL Bank and MTN.
