Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) Male Basketball Captain Isaac Martey has stated greater success will be achieved soon.

He made the statement in an interview with following GTUC’s participation at the just ended Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (*UPAC) Basketball Championship.

GTUC exited the competition at the quarterfinals without recording any wins in Group A which had the likes of eventual champions University of Ghana (UG).

Despite shocking Marshalls University College to qualify to the knockout phase for the first time in the tournament’s history, GTUC failed to clinch a win.

“GTUC is on a journey to success…I don’t think we failed this time but rather this was a step ahead. There was history made by this very team. Expectations after qualifying through the group stages were not met but…I promise GTUC will be seen in the semifinal and finals” he said.

GTUC lost 31-51 to Takoradi Technical University, 29-49 to UG and 32-47 to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

The team topped Zone 7 in the preliminary stage to make the quarterfinals.
