Coach Xolisa Kula was ecstatic with his ladies team performance. he is even sounding a warning bells to the Gauteng teams that have been dominating the USSA Championships for many years.

As Rhodes Sports Administration, we expect nothing less than a superb finish at the championships in Cape Town, Top 8 placing is our target.

If the ladies make top 8, they will qualify for the Inaugural Varsity Sports Cup for the ladies basketball. 

We wish them well for the up coming challenge.
