21st Super Kung Sheung Cup: Southern California Fukienese Association win gold again, India finish at best-ever third place! - Dec 20, 2016

Hong Kong's invitational basketball tournament - which featured both international and club teams - concluded on Sunday December 18, 2016 with yet another gold medal win for the Southern California Fukienese Association (SCFA) from the USA at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. Team India played at a high level through the course of the week-long tournament and finished with a bronze medal, their best-ever finish. The final of the tournament was held on Monday, as SCFA defeated Hong Kong's local club SCAA 88-82 and finished as repeat champions.
India, who sent out a star-studded squad to Hong Kong for this tournament, defeated Hong Kong's Eastern Long Lions on Sunday 90-60 to finish at third place. Four Indian players finished in double digits, led by Amrit Pal Singh (210-C-91) (24), Bhriguvanshi Vishesh (192-G-91) (23), and Rikin Pethani (203-C-90) (16). After India led just 33-30 at halftime, a 32-19 run in the third period turned out to be the decisive period as India eventually raced to a blowout victory. Captain Bhriguvanshi was named the Best Shooter in the tournament. Head Coached by Bhaskar Sappaniambalam, the Indian team saw the return of established stars Bhriguvanshi Vishesh (captain), Amrit Pal Singh, Pratham Singh (189-G/F-91), Yadwinder Singh (198-PF-86), Rikin Pethani, Arvind Arumugam, Aravind Annadurai, Akilan Pari and Prasanna Venkatesh. Chandigarh's 24-year-old centre Ravi Bhardwaj who made his international debut earlier this year, retained his place in the side. Junior India captain Baladhaneshwar Poiyamozhi and Karnataka's Anil Kumar Gowda, made their senior India debuts. India were placed in a group with Hong Kong's club Winling and Thailand's national team to start the tournament, and both games turned out to be relatively comfortable victories. Trailing 58-56 after three quarters in their first game against Winling, India closed the game in style, outscoring their opponents 30-20 in the final period to win 86-78. India's trio of Amrit Pal (28), Aravind Annadurai (21), and Bhriguvanshi (19) led the scoring assault in the victory. Kepkay Alexander and Hosford Daniel of Winling scored 26 and 21 points respectively. The next night, India were once again locked in a close combat against Thailand, leading 33-32 at halftime. But a massive 27-7 run in the third created a separation necessary to help India cruise to a 86-65 win. Bhriguvanshi (29) and Amrit Pal (19) were once again India's primary options on offense. Nakorn Jaisanuk (190-G-91) scored 17 for Thailand. India qualified for the Semi-Final, but their ambitions for the gold were cut short in a close loss in their semi against eventual winners SCFA. It was one of the best games of the tournament, as both teams battled back and forth and featured a rich armory on talents on each side of the floor. India enjoyed a six point lead at the end of the first quarter before SCFA came fighting back to trail 45-46 at halftime. The third quarter saw India move ahead again, but a clutch 25-16 run by SCFA in the fourth handed India a loss, 93-89. The loss overshadowed a huge performance by Bhriguvanshi (35) and crucial supporting roles played by Rikin Pethani (21) and Amrit Pal (17). Taylor Statham (26) and Donald Lee (21) did most of the damage for the American side. A total of nine teams took part in this tournament, which was in its 21st edition.

'I am in India to improve my game and prove it to NBA coaches' - Satnam SIngh - 1 day ago
Be it on court or off it, Satnam Singh Bhamara stands out from the rest. And that's for two reasons - his towering height of 7-foot-2 inches and him being the first Indian-born player drafted into NBA. And here, at the 68th Senior National Basketball Championship, which is being held in Chennai, it's no different. He is much in the limelight - and the moment he's off the court, there's always a bunch of fans waiting to take selfies with him. But the basketball star has no qualms about it,...   [read more]

FIBA World Cup Mens Qualifier - Days ahead - 2 months ago
Thirty-seven years ago, in the pleasant late-summer in Moscow, Indian basketball made history. A series of fortuitous circumstances-including a golden generation of Indian basketball stars and a series of international diplomatic breakdowns-made India an unlikely entrant in the Men's basketball fray of the 1980 Summer Olympics. India were the weakest team in the tournament and lost all seven of their games. Still, it was the competitive high-point in Indian hoops, an achievement that has...   [read more]
