VUT Crowned 2021 USSA Women’s Basketball Champions

by | Sep 27, 2021

Vaal University of Technology (VUT) claimed their 11th University Sport South Africa (USSA) basketball title after beating University of Pretoria (TUKS) 65-49 to be crowned 2021 USSA Women’s Basketball champions.

VUT led 42-25 at half time and kept building pressure and intensity to blaze ahead to 60-29 by the end of Q3.

VUT’s win should come as no surprise. They have been building a winning reputation for many years. Before Covid-19 and the cancellation of tournaments, they won the 2019 USSA Basketball Champs and the debut basketball tournament at Varsity Cup.

For TUKS it was an incredible run to make it to their first final in many years, but the superiority of VUT saw them beat TUKS convincingly to win the title.

The bronze medal match was a thrilling affair between Wits and University of Johannesburg. Wits claimed third place after beating UJ 52-36.
