UBA: Commitment to Excellence - Dec 2, 2016

As the UBA prepares for Season 4 its players continue their preparation, working harder than any other time in their careers. Before the UBA arrived in 2015, even the best players in India would be limited to playing in only a few tournaments each calendar year, with limited practice time for a short period before each tournament. UBA Chairman Tommy Fisher has made a commitment to providing UBA players with two seasons in each calendar year to be played around their other basketball responsibilities, such as being on national and/or state teams. 'The best way to increase the vision of how to elevate the game in India,' says Mr. Fisher, 'is affording the players of India an opportunity to play more than just a certain time of the year.' Former international team star and two-time First Team All-UBA standout Siddhanth Shinde of the Pune Peshwas agrees. 'We get a couple of tournaments in a year,' Shinde said, 'That's it. UBA gives us a lot of experience and we get special treatment from UBA which players deserve.' One of the greatest women players in India history is Shiba Maggon , who coached the Haryana Gold in UBA Season 2. 'The UBA has come at the right moment,' says Maggon. 'Because the players are eager, very anxious, because basketball was a left out game so the UBA is bringing help to the players and combine everyone and then bring in the results. So this is the moment we have been waiting all these years.' Part of what Maggon means by 'bring in the results' is how the UBA's regular season qualifies teams for the playoffs, which is where championships are won. Under the UBA's current system, its eight teams, divided in to two divisions, play a season after which the first place team in each division earns a bye to one of the two league semi final series. The last place team is eliminated while the second and third place teams in each division face each other in a one game Play-In which allows the winner to move to the semi finals. The semi finals are best of three series followed by a championship series between the two semi final series winners which is also best of three. All eight UBA teams have qualified for the post-season at one time or another. For a team to win a title it must do more than win a big game, it must make the necessary adjustments to win again and prove it is the best team. At the same time, one poor game will not bring an end to a team's season if it is the best. Shinde has been among the many who have embraced the concept of playoff series to determine a champion instead of a tournament. 'UBA at present means a lot,' he says. 'It means professionalism. In India there is a lack of professionalism. UBA is getting that.' UBA Chairman Tommy Fisher is making sure India's best players will continue to get added competition and professionalism. 'The one thing that we have that I see is there's heart and there's effort and these players of India want to become better. They listen when the coaches talk to them.' Mr. Fisher adds, 'They want to become better basketball players. And so, we're starting at something that's pure that hopefully we can make great.' The better basketball becomes within India, the better India will become as it competes with the rest of the world. Former international team member Karna Mehta of the Pune Peshwas knows he's in the twilight of his playing career, but the sport's future is as bright as it's ever been. 'It's a great platform for all the young and experienced players like me. I'm not young any more,' says Karna, 'but competitively, experience does count. We didn't have such a platform during our time when we were playing for the international team and the Indian team, but I'm sure this kind of platform is going to make basketball a crazy sport in India.' And it's about to get even crazier. According to Mahesh Padmanabhan, who grew up in Sydney, Australia after his family moved there from Chennai, but has returned to India to play with the UBA's Hyderabad Sky, 'Culturally India is just an amazing place to get involved in anything. Once the crowd gets behind a sport or anything in particular, it just takes off.' UBA Season 4 will be taking off in early 2017.
