University of Professional Studies (UPSA) basketball team head coach Emmanuel “Coach Ghanaar” Essel Worbil has allayed fears of his team’s championship credibility ahead of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.
The 2016 UPAC Championship headlined by world’s best-selling deodorant Rexona, is set to take place from March 5-April 16 and will have 28 tertiary institutions compete against each other for the biggest trophy in tertiary basketball.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, the veteran coach said:
“We don’t have too many problems unlike other teams. Because of the GUSA-Ghana Universities Sports Association- we know the teams we are about to meet and our expectation is to take the UPAC this time.”
“They –the players-know the lapses out there, they know about our shortcomings at the GUSA and we are not going to repeat it this time round.”
UPSA placed second in the GUSA Games held at the University of Education in Winneba earlier this year following a 49-65 loss to University of Ghana in the final game.
The third edition of UPAC will be supported by CAL Bank, Fanyogo and telecommunication giant MTN in partnership with media outlets including TV3, Y FM and Basketballghana.com and Graphic Sports.
