edcliff based Steelers dominated the Midlands Basketball Union pre-season tournament held in Kwekwe at the weekend scooping gold in the men and women categories.
Steelers men beat Unicorns in the finals after having seen off Hawks in the semi finals while their female counterparts also triumphed over Hawks females in the final to clinch gold.
Midlands Basketball Union secretary general Mathew Tumbare was pleased by the level of competition exhibited at the tournament, which was a curtain raiser to league which starts next week.
“The turnout was good, the teams really gave their best performances. The level of competition was pleasing despite the fact that players were coming from the off season,” said Tumbare.
“It promises to be a good season this year considering the level of preparedness shown by the teams.
“It was interesting to note that some talented players like Goodluck Chiparaushe has returned to the province from Harare to play for Unicorns and Nyasha Zamani who was JBC in Harare.”
The midlands league will commence on 17 September and the opening games will be played in Zvishavane at Maglas and McAdams courts.
