University of Energy and Natural Resource (UENR) captain Benjamin Quarshie says his team has an equal chance of making it out the quarter finals just as any other competing team in the 2016 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.
The quarter final games will have UENR take on Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Marshalls University College and Takoradi Polytechnic in Group B. The games will be played on April 14 at Accra Polytechnic and April 15 at the University of Ghana.
UENR, making its first appearance in the Championship beat out the likes of 2011 quarter finalists Sunyani Polytechnic and Catholic University College to top Zone C and make it into the last eight. Speaking to Basketballghana.com after the quarter final draw, the lanky Center said:
“We have high and equal chances of qualifying for the next round of the tournament just like any other team in the group… We are not underrating any team”.
Quarshie and Zone D Most Valuable Player Robert Fiifi Brew will be tasked to ensure UENR’s winning run continues. Brew, a standout Guard at Koforidua Secondary Technical School, averaged 6.4 points, four rebounds and two assists in three games.
The 2016 UPAC Championship is supported by MTN, CAL Bank and Fanyogo in partnership with Basketballghana.com, TV3, Y FM and Ghana Sports Newspaper.
