PORT Elizabeth Comets Basketball Club proved they are the city’s most formidable side when they were announced as the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro Super League champions in the men’s division at the Raymond Mhlaba Indoor Sports Centre on Sunday.

PE Comets won all their games to be crowned the winners for the fourth time.

According to PE Comets chairperson, Sibongile Fondini, his side’s victory was attributed to discipline, determination and dedication. PE Comets, according to Fondini, started the season on a bad note when their star player, Mvuzo “Tshawe” Ncandana, passed away in January this year.

“This bunch of very good guys are the pride of the NMB Metro Super League. We dedicate this year’s league title in good memory of the late Ncandana. Up next, we are setting our sights on the Mayoral Cup tournament.”
