Assam Basketball League announced - Sep 21, 2018

Assam's basketball, which has so far lagged behind owing to lack of promotion, is set to get a shot in the arm with the introduction of the state's first professional basketball competition - Basketball Challengers League (BCL) - that will kick off at Nehru Stadium here on Sunday.

The league, organised by Sportscraft Management in association with the Assam Basketball Association (ABA), will witness a battle of six professional basketball teams, including those from Northeast Frontier Railway and IIT Guwahati. A team from Jorhat and three from Guwahati will also compete in the draw.

Most of the teams will comprise a maximum of three national-level outstation professionals from different parts of the country. The eight-day tournament will be played in league format and the top two teams on the points table will play a final match to decide the winner.

There will be prizes, including cash rewards, worth Rs 2 lakh up for grabs, Sportscraft Management managing partner Darick Ranjan Deka said. Man of the Match and most valuable player trophies will also be at stake.

'We hope the league will start a new era of professional basketball in Assam. It will get even bigger as we received tremendous response from the basketball fraternity within a short span of time after we intimated the interested franchises,' he added.

Asked about the ABA's role in the tournament, Deka said: 'The ABA has been of immense help to us in securing the venue, technical and logistic support in our endeavour.'

Elaborating the teams' compositions, he said apart from the three professionals in every team, some of the franchises have hired expert coaches from outside Assam. 'There are players also from Mizoram, which has been successfully organising a professional league over the past few years. Overall, there will be about 20 national-level players in the league,' he said.

Asked why a professional league of basketball and not any other sports, which are more popular in Assam, Deka said: 'Our firm's objective is to promote sports, which have not drawn the deserving attention so far. There are other sports as well. But basketball has not got the due attention. I hope this league will help the sport grow leaps and bounds in the state.'

He said Sportscraft Management will organise the league on its own for the first time.

'We could not muster financial support from the corporate sector this time because of paucity of time. But next time onwards, we hope to involve corporate majors to sponsor the meet in a bigger way,' he added.   



Veselin Matic - Indian Basketball's new Serbian Coach - 11 days ago
Veselin Matic had India beat. Or to put it more precisely, Matic - the experienced Serbian basketball coach - sat on the opposite end of the bench, leading an upstart team from Syria to a shocking win against India, 74-57. This was his first taste of being in India, in November 2017, during the preliminary round match of the FIBA World Cup qualifiers in Bengaluru. Seven months later, as the qualifiers came to a close with the last legs of matches, Matic's Syria did it again, beating Ind...   [read more]
Access must for Basketball to grow -Harrison Barnes - 20 days ago
To say that Harrison Barnes knows what it is like to be a world-class basketball player is an understatement. He was part of the Golden State Warriors that won the NBA title in 2015 -- their first in 30 years and was part of the USA team that won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics. That India lags behind the USA in terms of infrastructure for the sport is common knowledge, but Barnes feels that apart from that, youngsters need access to the game to fall in love with it in the first place. "I...   [read more]
