KNUSTKumasi Polytechnic cruised past Ghana Technology University College 54-11 in their opening 2016 Rexona UPAC Basketball Championship in Kumasi on Saturday.

The opening fixture turned out to be a practice match for the home team with captain Ernest Sowah and Joshua Amadu tearing their opponent apart.

Amadu set the tone and Ernest Sowah finished the job as the host team cruised past their opponent mercilessly

The dynamic duo for Kumasi Polytechnic was brilliant once again as the surging team recorded their first win.

“I come out and compete knowing we were going to win. The game looked easy but we ha to sweat for a win,” Sowah said

“I think it’s exciting to start on a positive note and we’re looking ahead to our next game.

“We are delighted to have started on a positive note and hopefully the team spirit and bonding will continue in that regard.

After building a 14-point lead at the end of the third quarter, Kumasi Polytechnic quickly extended it and continued to play an up-tempo style and Ghana Technology University College had trouble locating their opponent’s shooters.

The battle appeared extremely humongous for Ghana Technology as they struggled to keep with the pace and tempo of the game.

Kumasi Polytechnic will next play Garden City University College before a final showdown against rivals Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in their final game.

The 2016 UPAC Championship is headlined by Rexona, supported by MTN, CAL Bank and Fanyogo in partnership with, TV3, YFM and Ghana Sports Newspaper.
