    Eish, I’m sorry to ruin the parade of well wishing, as always I want SA bball to move forward and debate is very important in this regard.

    SO …

    How exactly do we qualify to participate in these games?
    Do international students studying in our institution qualify?
    How have we performed in the previous editions?


    Is there are strategic thrust to this programme, in terms of improving perfomance per edition?

  8. kim says:

    When I enter the site and have a look at recent comments and I see Joe’s name then I know ITS ON(hahaha).

    This is the little information that I have on the games:
    1)There is no qualification to this tournament but past performances are taken into consideration when teams are given a slot.Its not only basketball but a host of other sports like Athletics(SA has done well in),Volleyball,Football,softball etc.USSA and FISU thus determine who goes and who doesnt hence basketball ladies havent featured in Bangkok and now in Serbia.
    2)International Students dont qualify but we can call on students that study overseas who are SAfricans
    3)The ladies havent performed well but the guys performed relatively well in 2005 but that depends on ones definition on whats well.The last games the team attended in Bangkok,the team lost all its games with an average of about 17points a loss if not 20 points.

    Strategic Thrust……I am not sure how to answer this one maybe USSA can assist.
