UCC wins third edition of the Tertiary Business Sense challenge
The University of Cape Coast has won the 3rd edition of the Tertiary Business Sense challenge (TBSC). This makes it two wins in three editions of the competition since its inception.
They emerged winners after an interesting grand finale against Kwame Nkrumah Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). It was held on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at TV3’s Studio B.
At the end of the contest, UCC garnered 59.13 points against 50.13 by KNUST.
With scores of 15-5, 13-5, and 7.13-5.13, UCC clearly dominated the first three rounds. KNUST however, in rounds 4 and 5 gave UCC a stiff competition. The introduction of Master Otoo Sebastian Annan KNUST team was a major factor. Round 4a and 4b both ended in split scores, 16-16 and 8-8 respectively. UCC then lost in the final round by 0-11 but their victories in the first three rounds were enough to give them the overall victory.
In the third and fourth place contest, the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) emerged winners against Central University with 39.8 – 36.9 scores.
