The 2017 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship continues with games in Zone C set to commence on Friday March 3 at the University of Cape-Coast (UCC).
Host UCC has been drawn in the zone alongside Takoradi Technical University (TTU), University of Education-Winneba (UEW) and Cape-Coast Technical University with only the winner guaranteed a spot in the quarter finals.
UCC heads into the game with revenge on its mind against the highly rated TTU side who placed fourth at the national championships in last year’s edition.
Both teams were in the same zone and squared off in the final game to decide the zone winner.
TTU beat UCC 49-46 in a nail biting contest that ended the host’s chances of qualifying to the latter stages of the competition.
With UCC placing second at the Ghana University Sports Association (GUSA) Games basketball competition in January losing only to reigning UPAC Champions University of Ghana (UG), the host is primed to dislodge its bitter rival.
UCC starting Point Guard Ibrahim Mohammed stated in an interview with Basketballghana.com his side hell bent on making it out of the preliminary zone.
