The 1st All India Basketball Tournament for Men, Rohtak tipped off yesterday at the Rajiv Gandhi Sports Complex in Sector 6. The tournament is being organised by the Basketball Club of Haryana (BCH) under the aegis of the Haryana State Basketball Association and the Basketball Federation of India.

In a decisive set of matches, Group B teams Indian Railway and Indian Army, and Group A's ONGC, Dehradun and Income Tax, Chennai are through to the semifinals, with perfect 2-0 records.

Even though all 4 semifinalists have been decided, tomorrow's final round of league matches will still be crucial in terms of decided the toppers of both groups and consequently the semifinal matchups for day after tomorrow.

Mr Pradeep Kumar, Additional Deputy Commissioner (Rohtak) was the first guest for the day. Later on Shri Ved Parkash Sheoran, Principal of Government College, Rohtak and Master Rampal Arya, Mahamantri of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Haryana were greeted warmly by participating teams. Finally Professor Pardeep Rana from Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak was present for the final match of the day.

Day 2 action began with Punjab taking on Indian Army. After a strongly contested first three quarters, Indian Army broke away in the last 10 minutes to go 2-0, while Punjab is now 0-2 and certain to not progress to the knockout stages, with one league match still remaining. Vishal of Indian Army was named man of the match.

Indian Army (Gopal Ram 21, Ramesh 18, Amandeep 9) bt Punjab (Mandeep Singh 18, Sahil 14, Rahul Mehla 12) 86-70 [21-24, 22-20, 26-13, 17-13]

Overcoming some loud home support to Haryana, ONGC Dehradun kept their composure and became the first team to progress to the semifinals from Group A. Haryana's international guard Vinay Kaushik fought valiantly, including an impossible three pointer at the halftime buzzer. But ONGC still held a 40-34 lead going into the second half. Current India international Vishesh Bhriguvanshi showed his class yet again with a mammoth 33 points. Former international Riyazuddin had a man of the match worthy 18 points, while another current international Yadwinder Singh was effective on both ends of the floor.

Haryana competed extremely hard yesterday against Income Tax, Chennai and today against ONGC, and can be considered unlucky to still remain winless. With back to back losses, Haryana is now out of contention of making the semifinals, but will be looking to end on a positive note against Indian Air Force tomorrow.

ONGC, Dehradun (Vishesh Bhriguvanshi 33, Riyazuddin 18, Yadwinder Singh 14) bt Haryana (Vinay 13, Pradeep 12, Deepak 12) 82-66 [25-17, 15-17, 28-18, 16-14]

Playing late in the evening, Income Tax Chennai won a very crucial Group A game against Indian Air Force to qualify to the semifinals. Coming into this match, Air Force was smarting from an opening loss against ONGC, while Income Tax had beaten home team Haryana.

This match was a fascinating contest between two very different teams. The Air Force came with a full contingent 12 players, a head coach and assistant coach, while Income Tax, Chennai is fielding just 7 players with no coaching staff.

But as it turned out this match wasn't about bench strength or off court strategists, as Income Tax prevailed 67-62. Air Force coach Jora Singh was heard early getting agitated at a few calls not going his team's way. The calm and collected Chennai side went about their business without a fuss, raking up a 17-10 lead at halftime. Air Force retaliated in the second quarter, and again in the fourth, mainly through Haryana guard Joginder and forward Ashutosh. But they were countered by current internationals Rikin Pethani and Akilan Pari. Centre Rikin proved especially unstoppable for the second straight match, scoring a high 27 points to prove himself an early tournament most valuable player (MVP) contender. In the end, despite a late rally by Air Force, Chennai prevailed 67-62.

Rightly so, Rikin Pethani was named player of the match.

With Chennai's win, they have joined ONGC (both 2-0) in the knockout stage, while Indian Air Force and Haryana (both 0-2) have been knocked out.

Income Tax, Chennai (Joginder Singh 16, Ashutosh Rai 15) bt Indian Air Force (Rikin Pethani 27, Akilan Pari 13) 67-62 [17-10, 10-14, 24-16, 16-22]

The Indian men's basketball team suffered a tough loss against Iran's national team on Day 4 of the William Jones Cup.

The NBA Academy in full swing at New Delhi - 3 days ago
Morning practice has ended for the 21 elite prospects at the NBA Academy India in Greater Noida, a city in the suburbs of the capital city New Delhi. The 13- to 17-year-old young men-chosen from a competitive evaluation stage that included hundreds of players from six cities around the country-now pair up for a few minutes to stretch, cooling down after a tiring session. There are no more sounds of basketballs bouncing on the wood court, no rims clanging, no instructions from the coaches...   [read more]

The Indian men's basketball team continued to shoot the ball well against Republic of China 'Blue' (Chinese Taipei National Team A), but eventually lost 80-101 on the third day of the William Jones Cup. In a see-saw game that saw both teams seize the initiative intermittently, the standout performance was Anil Kumar Gowda who dropped 27 points. The guard from Karnataka put on a shooting clinic, shooting 80% from two-point range and hitting five of seven from beyond the arc. Young forwar...   [read more]
