We’ve seen 2008 being a good year for South African Basketball and hope this year will even be a greater one.

USSA Gauteng Basketball would like to wish all the Institutions best of luck during their qualifiers in their respective provinces.

Gauteng qualifiers promise to be battle of fire as Gauteng and University of Pretoria being the host for the USSA National Institutional Championships 05 – 11 April 2009, in which Gauteng has four (4) spots.

The University of Pretoria’s teams and Vaal University of Technology men’s team qualify automatically as both are the host and the defending champs respectively.

    GP will continue to overshadow us because of good planning and competitiveness.With GBL and USSA happening this means provinces should begin to get their teams ready because we will be hearing…HOME OF CHAMPIONS…when we arrive at Tuks for the USSA’s.

    The competition will be tough once more as VUT will most definately go on a shopping spree.Luyanda,Dragons player,Christian,Chief have been rumoured to be going to VUT.Thats going to be a squad and a half and will have to see what transpires there.The question on everybodys mind is will GP go 1,2,3,4 in both men and women……I hope NOT!As for UJ Galaxy ladies getting over the final hurdle…….will see.

    If there still players looking for a home and not just a house……CUT is just around the corner.Phone,email or text me…you always welcome(hahaha).

    I think USSA should work more on promoting campus basketball in all spheres cause we only hear bout USSA when its championship time OR maybe i’m out of the radar. Because even though northern cape is not represented at the USSA champs does not mean they cant be be represented at the campus (….taking note at the composition of most campus teams).

    I think that our teams (especially our campus teams) should start focussing more on pre-season training, inter-campus games/tournament, USSA champs need to be transformed to USSA play-offs after a campus league. The only way GP will be given a run for their baskets is when other campuses get to face them more often throughout the year. …. u cant face a teams of that caliber 2 or 3 times a year and think we can close the gap. (same applies for Snr Champs).

    I see u did not even waited to be phoned or mailed….. Thanks for the opportunity with our boys frm NC. All of the best to CUT. NC’s basketball supports u guys (i’m not talking bout NCBA).
