UJ basketball won the USSA 3×3 championship in December 2021 at the University of Pretoria. The championship came just a month after they had lost in the Afro Varsity 3×3 Basketball Challenge in Nairobi, Kenya, in November 2021. The Orange Army will be looking to retain their title this year in Johannesburg as they take on other participating university teams.
