University Championship Cup Playoffs Underway

The American University of Kuwait (AUK), the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) and the Gulf University for Science & Technology (GUST) are competing in the University Championship Cup (UCC) 2011, a sports tournament for private universities started in 2006. UCC participants compete in five intercollegiate sports: soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and table tennis. Sport venues are provided by participating universities, allowing the UCC to take place on various campuses. This year AUK hosted table tennis, ACK hosted soccer and tennis, and GUST hosted basketball and volleyball. This year's primary sponsor is the National Bank of Kuwait.

UCC 2011 started at the beginning of April with seasonal play. As the season progressed, universities where ranked based on their win/lose recorded in each sport. Seasonal play is now over, the universities are ranked, and the UCC Playoffs will commence.

During the UCC Playoffs, universities' performance will be recognized on a point basis. 1st Place = 5 points; 2nd Place = 3 points; 3rd Place = 2 points. At the conclusion of the playoffs, the points are then tallied up for every sport and the university with the most total points is awarded the UCC trophy. An awards ceremony will be held on May 26th at 9 pm at ACK to honor all the student-athletes and award the UCC 2011 trophy.

Make sure you check out the UCC Playoff Schedule and go support the Wolf Pack!
