University of Ghana (UG) and Accra Polytechnic are set for the most anticipated matchup of the 2016 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship quarter finals.

The matchup will pitch the reigning Ghana Universities Sports Association (GUSA) Basketball Champions (UG) against reigning Ghana Polytechnics Sports Association (GHAPSA) Basketball Champions, Accra Polytechnic.

Both teams go into the game on with unbeaten runs in the championship which extends all the way to the preliminaries where UG topped Zone G and Accra Poly topped Zone F.


In the quarters UG dismissed Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) 53-29 and whipping boys Valley View University 72-24 in the opening rounds of Group A fixtures which took place first at Accra Polytechnic before moving to University of Ghana on Day Two.
