The Ashanti region qualifiers for the 2015 UPAC Basketball Championship takes place in Kumasi on Saturday March 21.

Four institutions: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Garden City University College, Kumasi Polytechnic and Christian Service University College will battle each other during the one-day event.

The game follows the successful Greater Accra zone 1 qualifiers which saw University of Professional Studies (UPSA) clinch a qualification to the finals next months after seeing off Pentecost University College, Ho Polytechnic and Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).

The second edition of the tertiary basketball is shaping up nicely after it kicked off last weekend in Accra.

The Ashanti regional qualifiers are expected to be masterful, engaging and keenly contested with some of the finest basketball players on display for their respective institutions and will be streamed LIVE on

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) boast of experienced players including star man Emmanuel Ekow Amoako playing alongside Edem Dompeh and Kwame Adjei Akrasi.

But their quest to make the finals could be threatened by emerging teams like Kumasi Polytechnic, who have vowed to silence their city rival when the two teams cross sword. The round-robin format will see the winner qualify automatically for the final which takes place in Accra in April.
