THIS year's MK Group Cup Basketball Championship held in conjunction with the 71st Birthday Celebrations of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, is building up its reputation as the biggest basketball tournament of the year with five participating teams getting import players from overseas. The championship is set to tip off July 16 at the Brunei Basketball Association's Court in Batu Bersurat. One of the first imports who arrived early to train with team Street Roc is seven-footer Michael Fey (213-F/C-83, college: UCLA), from the United States who had played for the LA Lakers in the D league in 2009-2010. Led by Coach Pong Bing Chau , Maxim Yap Chun Siong and Lim ho, team Street Roc is participating for the third time and is looking to reach the semi-finals. Street Roc's lineup is made up of eight locals who are: Ching Wei Ming, Darren Yap Jenn Chyuan, Soon Kian Leong, Po Yung Hui, Han Ming Kwang, Tan Ye Wei, Lim Teck Cheng, and Tan Kah Boon. Three Filipino players RJ Lucida, Apollo Bibat and Xavier Legaspi are also in the team. In an interview with the Bulletin, Coach Pong stated the need to have a good defence and touched on how the new import can help influence the team with his experience. 'We need a big man for our team. I believe he can bring us a good defence and rebound, as well as his experience in playing at many pro leagues, we can also learn from him.' He thanked MB Star European Auto for sponsoring the team. Michael Fey, who is currently on a summer break from Thailand's Dunkin Raptor, said, 'I am really excited to come to Brunei to play basketball. This is the first time that I am here and I hope that I can help my team to win the championship.' The towering Michael Fey, who is expected to play centre, is a Lakers fan since young. He played in the D league in 2009 with Kobe Bryant and Paul Gasol. 'It's the most memorable time of my time to be able to play with those basketball legends.' His advice for young players to get better at basketball is to practice hard.
Meanwhile, another American import, Nick Stover (198-F-93) is on his way to Brunei and will play for the YTE Morsjaya team. The small forward, who played against Ben Simmons of Philadelphia 76ers last year and got 13 points, said, 'I am very excited to play in Brunei for the first time and excited to travel somewhere that I've never been. I've had the luxury of being out of the country once in college for our overseas tour in Spain, but I'm extremely excited for this opportunity and have been looking forward to it.' On his game, the young forward said, 'I think my game has a lot of attributes to it and I think I can score and play defence, being a two way player is something I take pride in. I think I also bring a great amount of basketball IQ and the ability to lead a team and get my team involved and work as a group.' Recalling his achievement in the last five years, he said, 'I finished high school with two state championships and one CIF championship. I was recruited by many different universities around the nation and later chose Loyola Marymount University which is in my hometown in Los Angeles, California. 'Second year, (we) went back to the semifinals and lost to BYU. After that I was transferred to the University of South Alabama for my last two years, where I was the third leading scorer on the team and shot 46 from the field and 38 from three,' Stover said. Nick Stover six feet six inches in height, is a very versatile and competitive basketball player. 'I am a very charismatic individual and enjoy playing basketball and having fun with it as well. I love to win and I'm very competitive no matter what it comes to. I have played many positions throughout my career so I'm a versatile player. I'm excited for the journey ahead of me and looking forward to having a great career.'
