Pentecost and Central in action in 2017.

ATU Center Suleman Abubakar gathers rebound in a tie against Pentecost University College.
Pentecost University Basketball Coach Shadrack Quaye has his feelings regarding his team’s upcoming participation in this year’s UPAC.

The young tactician stated in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com he is “really serious” about the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.

Pentecost has been drawn in Zone 8 alongside defending Champions University of Ghana (UG), Regional Maritime University College and Radford University College.

Qualification to the national championship in the zone will be played at UG’s main court on Thursday March 28.

Ahead of the game, Quaye, whose team is yet to make it past the preliminary round since it began competing in the Championship in 2015 believes the change in approach will translate to a quarterfinal place.

“Am very serious about this Championship about this Championship this time around…I have been studying how the competition is like and I have been in it for like two years now and I know how it works so this time around am aiming for the trophy” he said.

Only zonal winners make it to the next round.
