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.

Gilas pummels India, 101-70 - 2 days ago
Gilas Pilipinas returned to its winning ways after making mincemeat of India, 101-70, in Day 8 of the Jones Cup hostilities in Taipei.

 Taking a page off their playbook against Iraq, the Filipinos mounted a fierce second quarter to pull away from the Indians. Gilas outscored their assignments in that frame 27-7. 

Behind the hot shooting of Matthew Wright (193-G-91, college: St.Bonaventure), Gilas went on to outscore the Indians every quarter. The Filipino-Canadian cager finished the gam...   [read more]
Iran also rout India 88-44 - 6 days ago
The Indian men's basketball team suffered a tough loss against Iran's national team on Day 4 of the William Jones Cup.

For India, the silv...   [read more]
The NBA Academy in full swing at New Delhi - 7 days ago
Morning practice has ended for the 21 elite prospects at the NBA Academy India in Greater Noida, a city in the suburbs of the capital city New Delhi. The 13- to 17-year-old young men-chosen from a competitive evaluation stage that included hundreds of players from six cities around the country-now pair up for a few minutes to stretch, cooling down after a tiring session. There are no more sounds of basketballs bouncing on the wood court, no rims clanging, no instructions from the coaches...   [read more]
