The plot for upcoming games in the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship has an added layer of intrigue.

Former University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) Coach Andrew Quansah has switched camp to bitter rival Sunyani Technical University (STU) ahead of Zone 4 games in this year’s competition.

The Zonal games tip off at STU later today with the host team set to compete against UENR, Catholic University College, Ghana and Kintampo College of Health.

Under his guidance, UENR impressed in several tournaments particularly the Global Sporting Platform (GSP) Basketball League and UPAC.

UENR has won the past two zonal competitions and placed fourth at last year’s edition at the expense of high profile names like Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

In the GSP League, UENR placed second in the 2015-2016 before going a step higher to win the trophy in the following season.

The spoken tactician’s influence has led to healthy competition between STU and UENR with the latter inking two league wins via two point leads respectively.
