Team India look to compete a five-peat at the 5th SABA Championship - May 18, 2017

The 5th South Asian Basketball Association (SABA) Championship 2017 will be held from 19th to 23rd May, 2017 in Male, Maldives. The five-day competition is being played in a round robin league format. Defending champions India will look to complete a five-peat but need be wary of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, who pose the biggest threat to India's attempt of accomplishing a rare sporting milestone. India's training camp for the tournament was held from 1st-17th May, at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, New Delhi with 33 players, and the final selections were made on 7th May. A conscious effort was made by the selectors and Head Coach Baskar Sappaniambalam to ensure that the right blend of youth and experience was picked for their campaign in Maldives. 'India has had a solid record at the SABA Championship and we aim to continue that trend. It is the only tournament where we can provide an opportunity to our younger players and hence we have selected 3 players under the age of 22. Our main aim is to win and qualify for the FIBA Asia Cup taking place in Lebanon in August,' said Sappaniambalam. India's attempt at a five-peat of the tournament will be led by experienced point guard Akilan Pari (180-PG-89). 'Our motto as a team is to win big and make sure that the juniors of our team get playing time. This championship is important for them to get good exposure and will be crucial in their development as players,' says Pari, who made his debut for India in this very tournament four years ago. Also featuring in the squad are centre Amritpal Singh (212-C/F-91), guard Vishesh Bhriguvanshi (192-G-91) and veteran forward Yadwinder Singh (198-PF-86). The same trio recently attended the NBL Draft Combine in Melbourne, Australia. Other familiar faces are centre Rikin Pethani, forward Prasanna Venkatesh, shooting guard Arjun Singh, centre Ravi Bhardwaj (207-C-92) and forward Anil Kumar BK. Among senior team debutants are promising guard, Vishal Kumar Gupta (Delhi), the talented forward Muin Bek (Tamil Nadu) and centre Jeevanatham Pandi (Tamil Nadu). The trio will be hoping for valuable minutes. As can be gleaned from past SABA editions (see below), the Indian men's team, with a blend of youth and experience, will start off yet again as strong favourites. The key to its showing will continue to be its superior size advantage when compared to its traditionally smaller South Asian opponent teams.

'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]
