2011-03-01 00:00

DURBAN High School showed that they are not only the top basketball side in the province, but also in the country as they won all their matches at the St John’s Tournament in Johannesburg.

The closest match was a 12-point win over Pretoria Boy’s and their most significant win was 71 -17 against Bishops of Cape Town.

A searing hot day brought Westville Boys High to the capital to play Maritzburg College for the first time in four years as rain has claimed the others. Westville won the 1st quarter 27-23 with Z. Lotz scoring 15 points.

College came back in the second quarter, outscoring Westville 14-3 to take a half-time 37-30 lead. This gave College added determination and the belief they could win.

In the third quarter X. Mchune put eight points on the board for College with the quarter ending 52-41 in the hosts’ favour. Westville made a strong comeback in the fourth quarter, but College held on to take the spoils with a 64-61 win.
