South Africa's basketball community

Gauteng Women’s tournament 2007

By on March 20, 2008 in Other Leagues

From the 12 to the 14 of December 2007, Gauteng Basketball hosted a successful women’s tournament at the Orlando Community Hall in Soweto. The winner of the senior section won R25000 cash and the winner of the junior section won R15000 along with more cash prizes for the all-stars and most valuable players.


The tournament at senior level was well contested but in the end the Zimbabwe jewels were the deserved winners by going unbeaten in their round robin games. They had a hard fought victory over UJ (29 – 27), beat Tuks (53 – 28), beat Eastern Cape (61 – 18), beat Limpopo (70 – 26). They combined experience with aggression and outgunned most of the South African teams with their amazing height in the post. University of Johannesburg came second with University of Pretoria taking 3rd place.

At junior level, Tshwane were the eventual winners after winning the deciding game against the other unbeaten side Limpopo. They had a quickly assembled team but they overcame their logistical issues to romp to victory in style in a very entertaining game.


Here are the team that took part:
