Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) have qualified to the quarterfinals of the UPAC Basketball Championship after topping Zone G and Zone F of the sought after tertiary event in Ghana.

KNUST topped Zone G by beating Ghana Technology University College (GTUC-Kumasi) 60-4 before delivering the zonal title with a 25-19 win over host Kumasi Technical University (KTU).

UENR replicated KNUST's form in Zone G to clinch the top spot. The Sunyani-based side beat Sunyani Technical University (STU) 34-26 before pummeling Catholic University College, Ghana (CUCG) 60-11 for an emphatic finish to the qualifiers.

Both teams qualify to the UPAC Championship quarterfinals for the second straight time. In last year's competition, UENR failed to progress beyond the stage while KNUST clinched bronze for its efforts.

A draw to determine the fixtures for the round will be made on March 31 for games to be honored on April 6.

However, in the Accra Basketball League (ABL) Men's Division I, Fire Service extended its winning run in the new season by beating Ghana Navy 57-44 to complete a good week which includes a 59-52 win over Tudu Magic in midweek.

In the final game of the Division, defending champions Braves of Customs responded perfectly from a 78-84 loss to Tema Youth to beat Magic 67-42.
