The last classification games were played today in Melbourne, Barbados claimed the fifth spot over Scotland 73-63 and South Africa recorded its first win of the tournament against India 65-59 to take the 7th place. Tomorrow, Australia will play New Zealand for the Gold medal and Nigeria will face England for the Bronze.

5th place game:
Barbados - Scotland: 73-63
In a pleasant game, Barbados reached half-time on a 36-30 score. The islanders extended their lead to 13 in the third quarter, Scotland never let the game go but they were unable to come back closer than a double-digit deficit. Jeremy Gill (183-G-84) had a brilliant final game with 22pts 9/19FG 11rbs and 4st, Dean Browne recorded 14pts 6/10FG 12rbs and 3st while Kelvin Patterson posted 11pts 4/8FG and 8rbs. Dan Wardrope (188-G-78) was the game's leading scorer for Scotland with 26pts 8/20FG but he didn't get a lot of help from his teamates on the offensive end. Stuart Mackay recorded 9pts 4/7FG and 14rbs and Ross Campbell scored 7pts 1/6FG.

South Africa - India: 65-59
A last game for the two winless teams of the tournament and that wasn't really an offensive fiesta, South Africa shot for 30% and India shot for 36% but the south africans provided a better defense and dominated in the paint. Neo Mothiba (195-G/F-82) recorded a double-double with 25pts 8/19FG 10rbs, Nyakallo Nthuping also recorded a double-double with 10pts 3/16FG 10rbs and Vusumuzi Dlamini scored 10pts. Sozhasingarayer Robinson (203-F/C-80) led India with 23pts 11/17FG 7rbs, Kumar Shiv added 13pts 4/14FG and Qureshi Riyazuddin scored 10pts 3/6FG.
RSA Point guard Patrick Engelbrecht was confident the Games experience would serve to improve the standard of South African basketball.
