wbsa logo

The final day of competition lead to disappointment if one was looking for close contested games with the playoffs.

The North West U23 youngsters struggled against the Western Cape who put in a clinical display of basketball and taking Bronze. Although the Bronze Ladies playoff promised to be a tightly contested game, the Western Cape Women let themselves down with poor finishing and allowing the North West Province to take Bronze.

Gauteng Women proved too strong with MVP Masego Mokhine dominating the game under the boards. KZN Women struggled against Gauteng’s press and aggressiveness turning over the ball and missing vital baskets. Although the game was exciting to watch, the Gauteng dominance in Women’s basketball secured Gold for the 6th time in ten SA National Competitions.

 

The game of the tournament was he clash of the Hosts KZN and Gauteng. Gauteng who suffered set backs when 21 year olds Herman Laupp and Kyle Louw with drew from the team, lost in the final game when KZN’s Thabane Tshange scored 41 of the 71 points scored. An outstanding game, which earned the young man MVP of the tournament.

 

Once again, a big shout out to KZN Sports and Recreation, KZN Disability Sport, The Wheelchair Basketball KZN LOC, the WBSA staff, its commissions, selectors and Sasol Officials for the success of the 10th annual Youth and Women Championships.

 

To Vodacom, a sincere thank you for having faith in the 15th year partnership and supporting Provincial basketball.

Day 2 of the Vodacom Challenge U23 and Women SA National Championships

Day 2 of the Vodacom Challenge U23 and Women SA National Championships saw the game of the day when the hosts KZN Women play in a tough thriller against old rivals, the North West Province, with the lead changing several times before the final whistle.

The North West took the lead in the first quarter to lead by 4 at the half but the KZN hosts clawed their way back into the game to take the lead by 13 points at the final buzzer.

Gauteng Men continued with their dominance over the tournament but were pushed to the limit by the Western Cape team taking a narrow 1 point lead at the quarter and 3 point lead at the half. Western Cape careless on the foul lost their combination and fouled out leaving them with only four players to play the 2nd half. Keeping up the pressure, they ended the quarter down by 3 but ran out of stamina in the last quarter to lose by 16.

Gauteng Women showed that they are true champions trouncing the Western Cape to relegate them on point average into 3rd position on the log

Wheelchair Basketball SA in conjunction with the KwaZulu Natal Province, is hosting the National U23 Men & Senior Women Provincial Games, in Umlazi, Queen Victoria Mxenge Basketball Stadium from the 12/06 to 16/06, 2015.

This is the 10th consecutive year of the Junior U23 & Women Provincial Games and 15th year of partnership with Vodacom. The previous youth games were hosted by the Freestate, Eastern Cape and Gauteng provinces respectfully and cater for the Provincial U23 Boy’s and Women age categories annually.

The Host and its LOC Chairman Mr. Siphamandla Gumbi must be congratulated on its organization and on behalf of Wheelchair Basketball SA, appreciation extended to our Sponsor, Sports and Recreation Kwa Zulu Natal, KZN Disability Sport and to the staff of Wheelchair Basketball SA

After Gauteng’s harrowing experience of a near fatal car accidence on the onset of their travels, the Gauteng Province took a resounding lead on Day 1 of competition, intentionally making it obvious to all that they are the current champions and intend to stay the current champions.

Western Province surprised the encumbering North West but comfortably beating both North West Men and Women in their opening games whilst the host were overpowered by their Gauteng counterparts. But, its early days and the competition is not won until the final whistle. May the best teams win. Herewith the results

Round 1 of the SuperSport Wheelchair Basketball Series was completed

Dear SuperSport Wheelchair Basketball fans Round 1 of the SuperSport Wheelchair Basketball Series was completed this weekend with the Bladerunners taking a commanding lead at the top of the log leaders board.

Again some great ball played over the weekend with the Ricoh Pumas going down by 1 point in an extra time playoff to the AngloGold Ashanti Lions and the Discovery Eagles nearly causing an upset against the Bladerunners.

A great comeback by the KwaZulu Wings with the inclusion of veteran player Douglas Hendrikz, showing what they are made of by trouncing the EHK Mongoose by 20 points and again pushing the Bladerunners to a 60 – 69 point game.
