Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Guard Nana Agyei Fritete has stated the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship is more difficult than Sprite Ball.
Fritete competed in the Sprite Ball Championship for Opoku Ware School before moving to KNUST; Sprite Ball is widely regarded as Ghana’s biggest high school basketball competition.
However, Fritete acknowledges the difference in competitions is clear after making his maiden UPAC appearance over the past weekend.
Nana Agyei featured for KNUST as the side clinched top spot in Zone 5 registering a 39-13 win over rival and host team Kumasi Technical University.
Speaking to Basketballghana.com after securing qualification the national championship, the Sprite Ball Alum made his assertions on the two competitions known:
“It’s a very competitive tournament, it’s not like that of Sprite Ball because this involves a lot of players from different places” he said before laying down his team’s expectations for the next round.
“We can win we can get the trophy we can go for the trophy…I believe that we are going to make it”.
Zone 6 games will played at Accra Technical University on Thursday March 22.
