The 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship is set to tip early next month with a flurry of games in various regions in Ghana.
Basketballghana.com understands this year’s competition will reportedly tip off on March 3 with games in the Eastern bloc to begin the preliminary stage.
Should the schedule stay same, teams in the bloc will have the chance to compete for a place at the national competition later in the year.
However, it offers defending bloc champions All Nations University College a chance to defend the title it won last year.
All Nations won the group ahead of KAAF University College and former UPAC quarter finalists Koforidua Technical University, Valley View University.
Despite being one of the new faces in the competition and limited by the absence of a basketball court on its campus, All Nations beat the odds to make the nationals.
The team’s lack of experience at the top showed in Ghana’s capital Accra as it missed out on a place in the knockout stage.
