India lose to Chinese Taipei 90-66 - Sep 12, 2016

After yesterday's opening win over Philippines, India fell to Chinese Taipei on Day 2 of the FIBA Asia Challenge that is underway at the Twelve Thousand People Sport Hall in Tehran, Iran.

Taipei bt India through decisive second half

India started the game with guards Talwinderjit 'TJ' Sahi and Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, forwards Yadwinder Singh and Amjyot Singh, with the 6ft 9.5 inch Amritpal Singh playing centre. Chinese Taipei's naturalized player from USA, Quincy Davis and Yadwinder traded opening buckets, before Taipei closed out the first quarter with a 26-20 lead.

India chose to stick with its starters in Q1, making its first substitution 4 minutes into the second period, with Prasanna Venkatesh coming in for Yadwinder Singh. Within a few minutes Venkatesh began making an impact, grabbing an offensive rebound that was followed by a tip in by Amritpal Singh, to bring India within 3 points of Taipei. Late in the second quarter, power forward Rikin Pethani got his first minutes of the tournament, giving Amjyot Singh much needed rest. Taipei meanwhile continued to rotate its players en masse to ensure fresh legs on the floor. India had done an excellent job defensively to restrict Taipei to 15 points in the second quarter, and at halftime trailed 35-41.

With little to separate the two teams in the first half, conventional wisdom has shown that third quarters prove decisive. The same was the case today, as the fresher Taipei team repeated its aggression from the first quarter. Captain Cheng Liu took the lead, scoring all of his team's 10 points to start the second half with a 10-3 run. India tried to catch up via Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, but the score at the end of the third quarter read 67-50 in favour of Taipei.

Bhriguvanshi and TJ Sahi connected on some quick threes to give India a glimmer of hope for a fourth quarter comeback, but Taipei proved equal to the task.

Bhriguvanshi ended with a game high 34 points, including 5 threes and went 9/10 from the freethrow line. However, the key difference was that while Bhriguvanshi and Amritpal built on their good performances from yesterday, top scorer Amjyot Singh was restricted to just 6 points in the entire game.

India will carry forward its 1-1 record into the second round, which will begin on 12th September, where it will face Group A's teams (China, Jordan and Kazakhstan) for a subsequent spot in the knockouts.

With the league stages continuing today and tomorrow, clarity on India's final preliminary group position and opening second round opponent is still awaited.

Results on 10/9/2016

Chinese Taipei (Yi-Hsiang Chou 23, Quincy Davis 18 pts & 14 reb, Cheng Liu 13 pts & 10 reb) bt India (Vishesh Bhriguvanshi 34 pts & 3 stl, Amritpal Singh 14 pts & 10 reb) 90-66 [26-20, 15-15, 26-15, 23-16]

I was in the check-in line at the New Delhi airport one afternoon when I heard some commotion from the far end. From the distance, I couldn't identify the cause of the hysteria that followed: men and women screaming in jubilation, forgetting their usual travel routine to chase down a celebrity. It didn't take long for the message to reach the lady behind my check-in counter: Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket captain and nationwide heartthrob, had graced the airport with his presence. He to...   [read more]

That was three times more than the next watched show, the film Fast Five and four times more viewers than another basketball game airing at the same time on the ABC television network. What is interesting was that the second game was between Lebron James and his champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the powerful Los Angeles Clippers, packed with stars lik...   [read more]
