Marshalls confident or complacent ahead of 2018 UPAC?

In a statement related to Marshalls University College’s preparations for the upcoming Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship Team Coach James Okine has opined his side is looking beyond the preliminary stage.

He made the statement in a recent interview with this year’s UPAC set to commence in early March; Marshalls head to this year’s competition as silver medalists from last year’s edition.

The team fell 21-45 to University of Ghana (UG) in the 2017 final despite winning that year’s Private Universities Sports Association Games (PUSAG) Basketball event mere days earlier.

Addressing the topic of preparations for the competition, Okine said, “For Marshalls we are not even thinking about the first round. We want to win this UPAC”.

Considering the Greater Accra Region has tough sides like defending champions UG, former winners Accra Technical University and former quarterfinalist Zenith University College, qualification to the national event could prove tricky.

The preliminary stage features one team progressing from eight groups to the national championship due to be staged in April.
