St Charles College has risen to within striking distance of becoming the leading basketball side in the country after a consistently strong season and are well placed in second position this week on the SA School Rankings.

You don’t often hear much of Michael Mount Waldorf School in Bryanston Johannesburg but when it comes to basketball they are one of the powerhouses and lead this week’s SA Schools Top 30 Rankings.

The SA School Sports Basketball Rankings are back in 2017 and we are looking to give as much exposure to this growing sport as we can this year.

Philip de Charmoy, a St Charles College student in Grade 10, recently jetted off with his U16 South African Basketball teammates to Botswana to compete in the Under 16 Afro-Basketball Qualifiers.

Basketball: School Rankings for : 23/02/2015

It is a three way tussle for the top spot in the SA Schools Basketball Rankings with all three of the top teams having unblemished records so far in 2015.

In 2014 it was Maritzburg College who took the SA School Basketball scene by storm as they ruthlessly brushed aside all comers to deservedly finish as the leading team in the country and take the number one spot on the SA School Sports Basketball Rankings.

A great win by KES over Pretoria Boys High and a solid performance by Maritzburg College are some of the good victories that came out of last week’s basketball results from around the country.

Basketball: This Past Week's Results

We are looking forward to a competitive basketball season in 2015 with plenty matches and tournaments planned that will hopefully ensure that the sport reaches a high level.

With the school basketball season winding down to a close we take a closer a look at how the various teams have fared during 2014 and where they find themselves on the SA School Sports Top 25 Rankings.

Maritzburg College remain top of the rankings despite going down in a shock result to Westville who caught the Pietermaritzburg team perhaps with too many matches in the legs after their St.John’s College tournament triumph.

Westville sent a message out last week that they are a team to be reckoned with and arguably one of the stronger teams in the country when they beat the high flying Maritzburg College team.

SA school sports magazine caught up with the St John’s U18 International Basketball tournament MVP from Maritzburg College, Thozamile Sineke, after his side had managed to make history and clinch their first St John’s Basketball tournament title beating St Albans in the final.

Basketball: The Latest Top 20 Rankings

As we brace ourselves for the St. John’s College U19 Invitational Tournament this week, it is Maritzburg College who have thrown down the gauntlet to the other teams as they clinch the number one spot for their second consecutive week.

It was the last chance for some of the First teams to get in some last minute match practise before the onset of one of the country’s biggest school basketball tournaments which is annually hosted by St John’s College.

Maritzburg College continue to put on an impressive display this season with a couple of good wins during the past week including a comfortable victory over Hilton College.

St John’s College will be well pleased with their win over St Albans College although it was perhaps too close to comfort for them.

Basketball: The SA Schools Top 20 Rankings

Eight 3 pointers by Maritzburg College’s Njabulo Biyela and a mammoth 20 rebounds from Siyathokoza Magubane, paved the way for a dominant win over St Charles College and send them to the top of the rankings.

A great win by St. Stithians over Pretoria Boy’s High was perhaps the pick of the results from the past weekend as Saints and PBHS slugged it out in a game that went to the proverbial wire.

A highly successful inaugural Independent Schools Stayers Basketball Tournament was held at Kearsney College during the holidays of September 2013.
