Basketballghana.com understands a team of high ranking individuals have been tasked to ensure eligibility standards are checked and maintained in the upcoming UPAC.
The 2020 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship is due to commence early in March with 32 institutions set to compete in the seventh edition of Ghana’s biggest tertiary basketball competition.
In previous editions, complaints about some institutions fielding ineligible student athletes for the competition have been persistent.
To address the issue and prevent it from happening again in the upcoming event and future editions, Ghana’s leading basketball portal has learnt a five man team has been set up for this purpose.
Ghana Basketball Association (GBBA) Vice President and UPAC Technical Director Iddrisu Ntenga is the team’s Chair per information gathered.
Representatives from the Private University, Public University and Technical University/Polytechnic sects respectively are reportedly on the team as well; all participating institutions are drawn from the various sects.
University of Ghana (UG) are the reigning champions after winning the 2019 competition.
