UCT routs local archrivals

31 May 2004

It's a blur: UCT's John Mumba (No 8 on shirt) whizzes past two Cape Tech rivals in UCT's convincing 86-48 win.

The UCT and Cape Tech basketball teams have been involved in a couple of nailbiters over the past few years, no one side quite getting the upper hand over the other for more than one game.

The sides' clash on Sunday, May 24, promised to be another sizzler. Things didn't quite pan out that way, however.

UCT got off to a flying start, and never let up. By the end of the first quarter, the side was well up by 31-18. UCT took command of the following two periods as well, outscoring Cape Tech by 28-10 in the second session to scream to a 59-28 overall lead, and 20-14 (ahead 79-42) in the third.

The final quarter was the closest one, UCT netting only seven points to Cape Tech's six. But by then, of course, UCT had romped to an 86-48 win, the most convincing margin of victory in recent matches between the two sides.
