Sports have the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination. – Nelson Mandela
BSA was admitted to FIBA in 1992 and its senior team has since competed at the AfroBasket but has yet to qualify for the FIBA World Cup. The Basketball National League administers the elite men’s professional game. BSA is registered with SASCOC as the officially recognised basketball federation
