Takoradi Technical University (TTU) has qualified to compete in the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship quarterfinals.
TTU achieved this by beating University of Mines and Technology (UMAT) twice in Zone 2 games played earlier today.
The host institution made the most of the zone hit by late forfeiture from Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA-Takoradi) and Ghana Technology University College (GTUC-Takoradi).
Takoradi Technical clinched the second and vital win of the day courtesy a 73-29 win to make amends for missing out on last year’s elite competition.
By making it to the quarterfinals, TTU will move to Ghana’s capital in the coming weeks to prepare for the games which tip off in April.
TTU joins All Nations University College as teams that have made it to the next stage of this year’s competition.
All Nations made its second straight quarterfinals after topping Zone 1 played in the Eastern Region; teams in Zone 3 will have their chance on Saturday March 10 at the University of Education-Winneba.
University of Cape-Coast, Cape-Coast Technical University, KAAF University College and host University of Education-Winneba have been drawn in the zone.
