Wisconsin University College Basketball Team Coach Kofi Gyimmah has reiterated the institution’s basketball program is gradually progressing in the game and will be a force to reckon with in the near future.
Wisconsin followed a bad performance in last year’s Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship with another poor showing in this year’s preliminary stage of the competition. The team lost 25-51 to Marshalls University College and 32-52 to Zone G hosts University of Ghana.
Despite the pile of losses, Gyimmah strongly believes the bad turnouts are part of a gradual process of building what will be a perennial strong contender in the not too distant future. Speaking to Basketballghana.com after his team’s exit, he said:
“Basketball in Wisconsin is on a gradual process of becoming the best. Next year’s UPAC will be something new for Wisconsin”.
The team failed to compete in the just ended PUSAG (Private Universities Students Association Games) Basketball competition where it was drawn in Group B with Regent University College and Islamic University College.
UPAC quarter final games will be played on April 14 at Accra Polytechnic and April 15 at the University of Ghana with the semi-final and final games set for April 16.
The 2016 UPAC Championship is headlined by Rexona, supported by Fanyogo, MTN and CAL Bank in partnership with Basketballghana.com, Y FM, TV3 and Ghana Sports Newspaper.
