South Africa's basketball community

GSBC conference tournament 2008

By on August 11, 2008 in High School

The Gauteng Schools Basketball Conference (GSBC) was launched in 2001 to provide the best opportunity for the greatest number of students of both sexes in Primary and High School’s to play basketball around the Johannesburg area, filling the void of inexistent Basketball leagues at those levels and also to provide a competitive environment to recognize those schools that excel.

It was senior City Championship time last week. This is a knockout Tournament for the top 16 school teams in the League. Tuesday 5 August, Wednesday 6 August and Thursday 7th August were the Top 16 play-offs at The Hill High School in the South of Johannesburg. The Top 8 teams took part in the last round of games at Wits University on Sat 9 August 2008. 

With returning five year Champions on the boys side, Dominican Convent came back to defend their title, crushing all opposition on their way to the championship. On the ladies side a depleted Germiston team tried in vain to regain their title but were eliminated in the first round thus relinquishing their title to Holy Family.

Here are the results:
