University of Energy and Natural Resources head coach Andy Quansah is adamant his side will prevail in the main championship of the 2016 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship which will take place between April 14 and April 16 at the University of Ghana.
The tactical head made the bold pronouncement following his side’s unbeaten run to the Championship’s Zone C leg of qualifiers. The third edition of the UPAC Championship is headlined world best-selling deodorant brand Rexona.
He said, “We are going all out because even few weeks of training got us this far so how much more a month of training. We have the advantage, we have a month for training ahead of the championship and with these boys experience and talent I believe we are going all the way to the finals and even win the championship.”
He also mentioned his team’s participation in the 24th Ghana Universities Sports Association (GUSA) Games held in Winneba earlier this year as a factor for his side’s triumph since it gave him the opportunity to know the areas he needed to work on for future competitions.
UNER followed up a jittery but winning start to the competition with massive 36-14, 49-24 victories over Sunyani Nurses Training College and Catholic University College respectively. Starting Point Guard Robert Fiifi Brew was named Tournament Most Valuable Player.
The 2016 UPAC Championship is supported by MTN, CAL Bank and Fanyogo in partnership with Basketballghana.com, TV3, Y FM and Ghana Sports Newspaper.
