Basketballers Were Good but Inconsistent

Basketballers Were Good but Inconsistent

In the men's basketball series the most exciting match of the tournament was that between Otago and Victoria, the score up to two seconds from time being 22 all. As the result of a "double foul" B. Sutton-Smith decided the issue, Otago missing its free shot at goal. VUC's team consisted of R. McR. Grinlinton, G. W. Moral, T. J. Benjamin, K. W. Staples, B. Sutton-Smith and A. R. Anderson. Throughout the game A. R. Anderson was an outstanding player, scoring more than half of Victaria's points.

Had the standard of play shown by Victoria been maintained they may have won the trophy, but their wild passing and individualism most them all chances in their game against Auckland, in which they were defeated 42-14.
