BFI hopes for a new Womens League this year , Govindraj re-elected BFI President for another term - Mar 26, 2019

Veselin Matic, who took Iran to an Asian Games bronze medal in 2010, is set to be appointed as the new head coach of the Indian men's basketball team. The Serbian's name had been cleared by the sports ministry last week, BFI Secretary General Chander Mukhi Sharma stated here on Sunday, with only a few formalities left to be completed. He is expected to arrive by the end of April.

A veteran international coach, Matic helped Iran qualify for its first ever World Championship (2010) with victory in the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship. The 58-year-old has also coached the Polish and Lebanese national teams, and was last with Syria. "Our plan is for him to conduct regular zonal coaching camps apart from clinics for our coaches," said Sharma. "The problem we face is that each zone has its own coaching systems and when players meet for national camps, we lose a lot of time in getting them to adapt to one system. We want to establish a uniform coaching pattern throughout the country."

Meanwhile, Zoran Visic, who previously had taken charge of both the men's and women's teams, will return to coaching the eves. His appointment was expected to be confirmed soon by the sports ministry, said Sharma.

-Govindaraj re-elected president-

K. Govindaraj was unanimously re-elected as President of the Basketball Federation of India at its annual general-body meeting here on Sunday. Chander Mukhi Sharma was re-elected Secretary General as the BFI promised a bunch of new ideas and tournaments.

A new six-team women's league would be held inside the next three months, declared Govindaraj. "We plan to hold it in six cities first. Depending on how it goes, we will take it to other centres," he said. Plans are also afoot to restructure the national championships, with a new committee constituted for the purpose. "The committee will give us its proposal in the next 45 days. We intend to have a zone-wise competition before the final round. We will have more matches, which will give us a chance to look at more talent," said Govindaraj.

The BFI President was confident that the men's team's performances would improve. "We will have aggressive camps. We have already appointed a foreign coach (Matic). We will do much better in the coming years," he said.

The office-bearers

President: K. Govindaraj; Sr. Vice-President: Teja Singh Dhaliwal; Vice-presidents: Seema Sharma, Om Prakash, Ajay Sud, Gautam Ganguly, Ajeet Singh Rathore; Secretary General: Chander Mukhi Sharma; Treasurer: V.

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]
