University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) headed performed badly in last month’s Mini GUSA Games Basketball competition as it failed to win a game before exiting the tournament.
Ahead of Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball competition, the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship, the side will be on the lookout for an upturn in fortune. The 2017 UPAC starts on February 17 and ends on April 8.
UNER is in Zone F alongside familiar foes Sunyani Technical University, Sunyani Nursing Training College and Catholic University College, Ghana; all four teams competed against each other last year.
After dominating the 2016 edition and qualifying to the national Championship in Ghana’s capital, Accra, UNER has not been on the best of runs heading into this year’s edition.
Aside losing 44-46 to University of Development Studies and eventual Champions University of Ghana at GUSA, UENR is yet to be a consistent force in the GSP Basketball League in Sunyani where the side lies outside the top four spots in the eight team league.
Zone F games will be played on March 22 at UNER.
