Following the first competition organized in 2011, the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship, the fifth edition of the prestigious competition is set to be held later this month.

The tournament tips off with regional games to determine representatives at the national competition which takes place in Ghana’s capital Accra.

This year’s competition is bound to be interesting given the high chips at stakes between former winners Accra Technical University (ATU) and University of Ghana (UG).

Both institutions have won the tournament on two occasions with ATU winning the first two editions and UG doing same in 2016 and 2017.

UG is in line to record a first ever three peat of Championships; the team has bagged its second straight GUSA gold medal in male basketball in January.
