India crowned 2nd SABA U16 Zone Champions

Bengaluru/Kathmandu, 9th September 2017: The Indian U16 men’s team has beaten Bhutan 131-50 and is now the SABA U16 Zone Champion. The Championship was held at the Dashrath Rangshala Stadium, Kathmandu.

In India’s last game, guard Binod Rajak and Centre Princepal Singh (who is the highest scorer in the Championship) chipped in with 20 points each. Overall, seven Indian players scored in double digits.

For his consistent showing, Princepal was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Championship

Team India was a dominant force throughout the Championship, as they scored more than 100 points on three different occasions and limited their opponents to 50 or lesser points on multiple occasions. The stats speak for itself as India now cruise into the FIBA U16 Asian Championship with ease, which will be held in Malaysia later this year.

India (Princepal SIngh 20 pts, Binod Rajak 20 pts, Prashant Tomar 16 pts) bt Bhutan 131-50 [40-7, 20-21, 41-10, 30-12]

India one win away from being crowned SABA U16 Zone Champs

Bengaluru/Kathmandu, 8th September 2017: The Indian U16 men’s team has beaten Nepal 106-39 on the third day of the 2nd SABA U16 Zone Championship being held at the Dashrath Rangshala Stadium, Kathmandu. Centre Princepal Singh from India continued his extraordinary form leading all scorers with 45 points and single-handedly dominating over the Nepal team. Overall, three Indian players scored in double digits.

Team India showcased a strong performance on both the ends of the floor not allowing any more than three Nepal players to score. India had a double digit lead over Nepal from the beginning of the game and finished even stronger.

Moving ahead, the 3-0 India are the strongest contenders for the championship, as they take on Bhutan on 9th September at 11:00 am (10:45 IST) in their final game.

If India wins tomorrow, it qualifies to the 2017 FIBA Under-16 Asian Championship that will be held in Malaysia later this year.

India (Princepal SIngh 45 pts, Priyanshu 12 pts, Jerome Prince 10 pts) bt Nepal (Abhisekh Singh 20 pts) 106-39 [26-12, 24-7, 32-12, 24-8]
