Established in 1968 as a technical institute, Ho Polytechnic is well on its way to become a full-fledged technical university in the not too distant future.

The 2016 Rexona Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship is set to take place between March 5 and April 16. Conversely, a series of warm up games for participating schools to fine tune their skills will precede the much awaited tournament.

This year’s edition is set to feature 28 tertiary institutions drafted from all ten regions in Ghana to compete for the biggest tertiary basketball competition in the country.

Counting down to tip off later this month, takes a look at Cape-Coast Polytechnics’ chances heading into this year’s championship.

The Volta-based side got paired in a tough group with Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Pentecost University College (PUC) and University of Professional Studies (UPSA). The team placed third in the group as UPSA booked the sole ticket by topping the group.

Ho Polytechnic has all the right tools to wreak havoc in the upcoming tournament due to the presence of former high school standouts Sedem Tettevi and Alem Butias. The duo will be joined by the likes of Clinton Akpaloo, Patrick Mawuli Kpodo and Agbator Richardson.

Come March, no team should sleep on Ho Polytechnic.


The 2016 UPAC BAsketball Championship is sponsored by the world’s best selling deodorant brand Rexona and supported by CAL Bank and MTN in partnership with media outlets including TV3, Starr FM and and Graphic Sports.
