Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) former basketball team coach Clement Adu-Gyamfi has called the bluff of University of Professional Studies (UPSA) by saying the team is panicking ahead of the 2016 UPAC Championship.
The 2016 UPAC (Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges Basketball Championship) is headlined by top deodorant brand Rexona and will feature 28 tertiary institutions in the six week-long tournament compete for a chance to annex Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball trophy.
The ex-manager made the strong statement when contacted by Basketballghana.com ahead of the showdown between the two Legon-based institutions on March 5. In last year’s edition, UPSA defeated GIMPA 25-20 to secure qualification from the preliminary stage.
“I can confidently tell you that UPSA are panicking because last year we gave them a good run for their money at a point we overturned the result and we were winning but things didn’t work out” he said.
UPSA and GIMPA will face off again on March 5 at the UPSA Court which prompted him to remark, “it’s a revenge, it’s a make or break game and they should watch out.”
Both teams will play in Zone A alongside Ho Polytechnic and Ghana Technology University College.
The 2016 UPAC Championship is supported by supported by CAL Bank, MTN and Fanyogo in partnership with media outlets including TV3, Y FM and Basketballghana.com and Graphic Sports.
