Indoor basketball was also on the high in Invercargill in 1959. At a tournament Southland went through without a loss. Teams from Otago, Otago Country, Central Otago and Southland all participated. Southland beat Otago Country 72-28, Central Otago, 79-35 and in the final Otago 60-39.
Otago won its first two games, but not nearly as convincing as Southland.
In the finals Southland and Otago, played a man to man game, which was very closely marked. Southland experience and team work was superior to that of Otago.
The outstanding forward for Southland was B. Tall, who on many occassion cut through the Otago defence to score. Otago's captain, R Shearer was a tower of strength, but was well marked by Southland guard D. Wilson, who kept him from scoring.
SOUTHLAND: B. Tall (15), R. Jackson (11), R. Price (11),
OTAGO: J. Edmund (13), R. Brock (8), and O Parks (8).
