BOUNCE Bas­ket­ball League ac­tion was fast and fu­ri­ous on Satur­day when teams locked horns at the uMh­lathuze Cen­tral Sports Com­plex in three en­ter­tain­ing matches up that pro­duced over 320 points.

The Univer­sity of Zu­l­u­land ed­u­cated Panda on the game, drilling them 62-40 in the first match of the day.

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons New Money man­aged to sneak a nar­row 43-42 win over NRBreeze in a fast end-to-end game that kept spec­ta­tors on the edge of their seats.

The day’s ac­tion ended off with Leg­ends beat­ing Con­querors 74-62 in a game that saw some slick in­di­vid­ual skills be­ing ex­e­cuted.

Teams will be back in ac­tion on Satur­day at the uMh­lathuze Cen­tral Sports Com­plex with Panda and NRBreeze kick­ing pro­ceed­ings off at 2pm.

Con­querors will look to bounce back when they take on New Money at 3.30pm, with Leg­ends and Unizul end­ing the day’s play at 4.30pm.

Catch the Zu­l­u­land Ob­server Week­ender for more pho­tos.
