TTU (blue) v GTUC in 2018 UPAC Quarterfinals
KNUST (white) v GTUC
The draw for the 2019 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship takes place today on Kwese Free Sports.

The Ghana channel will telecast the draw live on popular morning show “HeadStart” today with a lot at stake in Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball competition.

Eight qualified institutions are to be drawn into two groups with each group containing four teams. A round robin format of games will decide the top two teams that progress to the semifinals in each group.

The quarterfinal games will come off on Friday, April 12 at the University of Ghana (UG) Central Court with the semifinals and final game set for Saturday, April 13 at the same venue.

Top tier talent on several teams means exciting round of games could spring up in the lead up to the final on Saturday. Leading the field is UG who are attempting to win the title for a fourth straight time.

Accra Technical University (ATU) has two finals since last winning the UPAC title in 2015 and is eager to end its poor run in the finals.

Takoradi Technical University and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have made consistent semifinal appearances but failed to go to the next stage bar the 2015 final between ATU and KNUST.
