Blue Crest College’s absence of playing competitive games can affect the team’s chances of progressing in the 2016 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship according to team coach Kofi Agyemang Kwarteng.
Blue Crest College is set to face Accra Polytechnic, Zenith University College and Valley View University in Zone F qualifiers on Friday April 1 in the preliminary stage of the competition which is in its third year and headlined by Rexona.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com, just hours before tipoff, he said:
“It was rather unfortunate Blue Crest was unable to participate in the just-ended PUSAG (Private Universities Students Association Games)…However, to some extent it could affect us”
Two-time and defending champions Accra Polytechnic will be on the lookout for a third straight championship following two incredible title runs whereas Valley View and Blue Crest College will make their debuts in the championship.
The 2016 UPAC Championship is supported by MTN, CAL Bank and Fanyogo in partnership with Basketballghana.com, TV3, YFM and Ghana Sports Newspaper.
