The University of Ghana (UG) and Accra Polytechnic (A-Poly) are the hot favourites going into the much-anticipated zone 2 of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) basketball championship on Saturday April 2.
The main basketball court of the country’s premier university will be the centre of attraction where memories will be evoked as the hosts tackle Accra Polytechnic, Institute of Professional Studies and the Central University College in the all-play-all system to choose the top two for grand-finale.
The Most Valuable player of the 2010 GUSA games, Uriah Kwabena Clarke will beam with pride when he wear the jersey of the University of Ghana on home soil where a meeting with the Ghana National Polytechnic champions has raised the sticks ahead of the big-showdown.
It will also be another chance for Clarke to cement his position as one of the finest basketball players at the tertiary level in the West African country but of course he’ll face stiff opposition from equally talented players who will also be eager to make a name for themselves and their institution.
The four combatants are trimming the rough edges ahead of the cliff hanger and for the University of Ghana who will be without inspirational captain Jake Morrison, coach Emmanuel Wobil will need to count on Kelvin Ankrah to grind out results without their talismatic player.
The games are expected to be nerve racking, hypnotic and an end to end action from the first to the fourth quarter.
