Pakistan hammered in Islamic Games - Apr 11, 2005

The lack of experience of Pakistan players at the highest level proved costly as they were hammered in the first two matches of their campaign in the basketball tournament of the first Islamic Solidarity Games at Medina's Al Ansar Club.
Tunisia overwhelmed Pakistan 123-39 in the first encounter while fellow-African powerhouse Algeria were never ever pushed in their 144-39 triumph over the beleaguered Pakistanis.
This is Pakistan's first international tournament in 10 years and quite understandably the men in green seemed to be overawed by the big occasion in the Saudi Arabian city.
"We have entered an international tournament after a lapse of 10 years and our inexperience is showing in the middle," Lt Col Naseem Butt, the manager of the Pakistan team, said after his side's second defeat. "These African countries are very strong and on the other hand we have to learn a lot."
Pakistan last featured in an international basketball tournament way back in 1995 when they finished runners-up to hosts India in the South Asian Federation (SAF) Games tournament.
Pakistan next play Libya in the Islamic Solidarity Games tournament.
