The big win was recorded in the first game of the 2018 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.
Kumasi Technical is hosting the zonal game in Ghana’s Ashanti Region; the UPAC Championship is in its fifth year after the maiden edition took place in 2011.
KNUST is the defending champion and has represented the zone in every edition; following the big win over the host team, KNUST is in line to make another appearance at the national championship.
Kumasi Technical played a hand in the rout by committing a lot of turnovers and missing a host of shots when the side managed to beat KNUST’s tough defensive line.
This means Kumasi Technical needs to win its game against Garden City University College; the game is Kumasi Technical’s final game in the competition.
The Zone’s winner qualifies to the national championship to be held in Accra in April.
