In Ongwediva 2003 the UNAM Rebels were defeated by the Tomahawks in a match where both teams had their full squad battling for the Title.
In Katima Mulilo 2004 history repeats itself to the Rebels but this time it was the Civics Suns who got the title.
The Suns had only seven players who fought tirelessly in a game filled with injuries while the Rebels had their full squad but with N Mubita getting fouled out early in the third quarter resulting in his usual misbehaviour towards officials.
The Civics Suns had an 11 point lead when C da Costa had to leave the court due to cramps on both legs, resulting in a gap in the Suns downlow defense where O Rafael and A Kauejao did their best to hold on.
When the clock showed 1:38 seconds the Suns where down by 9 points and it was when L van Rooy took off in two fast break situations stopping by the three point line and firing two shots that brought the game to a 3 point difference.
The Rebels could not hold on to the ball and the C da Costa scored a tip basket bringing the game to a point close. When there was a split second showing in the clock, the referee made an out of bound call against the Rebels and they stormed into the court forcing this one to call two technical fouls (one on the bench and another on a player on the court) that gave the Suns a last second advantage.
Captain O Rafael made sure he scored the two last baskets that won the game for the Suns in their 69 : 70 win over the Rebels.
This was another hard lesson that the UNAM Rebels got, "it ain't over till it's over".

The best scorers in this match were Rebels H Mpume with 31 points followed by Suns O Rafael with 25 points.

 

The Poly Dodgers Beat the OCE Cubs in the Women finals making their coach O Rafael the first time ever person to win as a player and a coach in the same year.
