Competition in the zone takes place on Friday March 16 at the institution for the first time since previous editions have been held at the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) and Kumasi Technical University (KTU).
As host, UENR has easily won the zonal title on both occasions taking advantage of a vociferous home crowd to win in 2016.
STU is yet to qualify from the zone and feature in the UPAC quarterfinals and is determined to do so this year in front of its fans.
The team’s play lately has increased optimism in Sunyani Technical’s camp. Despite losing twice over the weekend to UENR in the Globals Sporting Platform (GSP) Basketball League, the team competed well against the defending champions.
Its latest loss was a 32-34 loss at the Eusbett Court and Sunyani Technical fancies its chance of grabbing victory over the dominant UENR side.
Catholic University College, Ghana and Kintampo College of Health round up the zone’s roster.
