Takoradi Polytechnic Forward Ernest Laryea is confident his side will go all the way to the finals of the 2016 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship which will take place at the University of Ghana on April 16.
The lanky, fire ball Forward made the comments in the aftermath of Takoradi Polytechnic’s thrilling 49-46 win over University of Cape-Coast in Zone E which enabled the Western Region-based side to book a spot in the quarter finals of the Championship.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, he said,” The other time we had some little problems and we have settled that so this time we are thinking of going to the finals and make it. We are definitely going to do that. Its’ not going to be easy, its’ going to be tough but we are going to find our aim.”
Takoradi Polytechnic also beat Cape-Coast Polytechnic 61-33 in Zone E’s other game in the team’s undefeated run in the qualifiers. Takoradi joins University of Development Studies-Tamale, University of Energy and Natural Resources and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in the last eight of the UPAC Championship.
Zone F qualifiers continue Friday April 1 where Accra Polytechnic will host Zenith University College, Blue Crest University College and Valley View University.
