Amjyot Singh
The return of Amjyot Singh (203-F-92) has bolstered India's hopes as it sets off for the 38th William Jones Cup international basketball tournament, to be held in New Taipei, Taiwan, from July 23 to 31. The forward was among the top five scorers at last year's FIBA Asia Championships, and is fresh off a professional stint in Japan's NBDL. "He's the team's main scorer," said the Indian captain Amritpal Singh (207-F-91), who played alongside Amjyot in Japan. "He was in good form at the ABC last year. It's great to have him back." The William Jones Cup is an invitational nine-team tournament, featuring a mix of national sides, club sides, and a University team from the U.S.A.. India has been invited back to the tournament after a gap of 11 years. "The American team (California State University) will obviously be the strongest," felt C.V. Sunny, one of India's two coaches. "But Iran, China and Japan are also sending their national teams. The standard of competition will be high." India is confident, though, of proving hard to beat. "We have good players in all positions," said Sunny, as the players were presented their kits here on Thursday. "We have good bench strength compared to the ABC team we had last year." Amritpal echoed those sentiments. "Last year, we finished eighth in the ABC despite missing five or six good players. But all of them have returned now," said the skipper. "It's an important tournament for us. There are some tough teams there, but we can upset anyone on our day."
