Uttarakhand Men become 2017 National Basketball champions in Puducherry - Jan 14, 2017

In the largest and finest annual collection of Indian basketball talent, only the most toughest survive to reach the pinnacle, to gain the prestigious honour of being called 'National Champions'. At the 67th Senior National Basketball Championship for Men and Women - the 'Senior Nationals' - in Puducherry, a couple of wounded predators got their retribution. Uttarakhand (Men) and Kerala (Women) - both runners-up from the tournament in 2016 - found their salvation in Puducherry by winning the Finals of the Senior Nationals on Saturday, January 14. The 2017 Senior Nationals tipped off on Friday, January 7th at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Puducherry. The championship was being organised by the Puducherry Basketball Association under the aegis of the Basketball Federation of India (BFI) and featured over 50 total men and women's teams from states and units across India.
The men's final pitted familiar foes and two heavyweights of Indian basketball - Uttarakhand and Tamil Nadu - against each other. Both teams had faced off in one form or another, including as ONGC and IOB, several times in big finals in recent years. Last year, Uttarakhand had bounced back from a 20-point deficit to beat TN in the Semi-Final, only to lose to Services in the final game. This year, TN, backed by nearby home support in Puducherry, hoped for a different outcome. But the result was decided chiefly on the talents of one exceptional superstar: Uttarakhand's and India's talented big man Amritpal Singh (212-C/F-91). TN had no answers for Amritpal, who scored 34 and caused havoc in the post all night. The two teams traded big runs back and forth in the first two quarters, but it was Uttarakhand who had the final word, finishing 23-16 in the fourth period to secure a 68-60 victory and their third national title in five years.
Earlier on Saturday, the third/fourth place matches were held to determine the bronze medalists in each division. The Men's game was a fun matchup between Punjab and the surprising semi-finalists from Rajasthan. Punjab relied on the explosiveness of point guard Talwinderjit Singh (185-G/F-86) 'TJ' Sahi (21) plus contributions by Rajveer Singh (18) and Gurvinder Singh Gill (16) to win 88-70. Vinod Kumar (22) and Sharad Dadhich (18) led the way for Rajasthan in the loss.

'I am in India to improve my game and prove it to NBA coaches' - Satnam SIngh - 11 hours 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]
