TuksBasketball : Madelief, Kollege crowned champions


Posted on 15 March 2011

The TuksBasketball Valentine's Tournament is an annual event for first year students. This is a chance for the residences to showcase their talent for the year as well as prepare for the upcoming res league.

This year’s tournament had a huge interest with 19teams participating all in all. The first round games of the tournament started out slow with the teams still getting a feel of the games. 

After all the first round games only 4teams pushed through to the semi finals. In the first round of the ladies semi’s Curlitzia met Jasmyn and Klaradyn met Madelief in an action packed semi round. Madelief and Jasmyn proved to be the better teams.

Madelief sent a strong message on Wednesday to all the res’s when they fought hard from the first whistle to the last and their fighting spirit secured them the title for this year’s Valentines Tournament.

In the men’s section Mopanie met Boekenhout in the semi and easily secured that win while Maroela played Kollege in a nail biting semi. Kollege managed to scrape through that game to meet Mopanie in the final.

Kollege on the other hand were the underdogs of the tournament having lost 2games on Monday. On Wednesday nigh Kollege proved to be a different team. The final was an electric event with spectators (mostly Kollege) cheering and jumping with every possession. At the end of the first half Kollege was down one point to the undefeated team of the tournament, Mopanie. However the crowd semmed to give Kollege their need edge and managed to beat Mopanie by a single point to crown them this years champions.
