EA Networks Centre hosted the four day U13 Southern Regional Basketball Championships last week.

Running from Wednesday to Saturday, the busy tournament featured teams from around the Mainland.

A and B grade competitions for boys and girls were contested by 32 teams, including four from Mid Canterbury.

There were also teams from Canterbury Metro, North Canterbury, Buller, Otago, Southland and West Coast.

Games were played over four, eight minute quarters and featured pool play over days one and two, followed by playoff games.

The Mid Canterbury reps struggled in the match ups against teams from bigger centres. Some also gave game time and tournament experience to some younger players.

North Canterbury won the A grade boys event, while Otago Gold won the girls A grade. West Coast won both the B grade boys and girls competitions.
