Cin­cai take Un­der-18 ti­tle

New Straits Times - - Sport -

TEAM Cin­cai from Ka­jang over­came a stiff chal­lenge from Shah Alam side Swing Man to clinch the URMYBRO 3-on-3 Ju­nior Unity Bas­ket­ball Car­ni­val Un­der18 ti­tle.

Cin­cai won the fi­nal 6-3 to lay their hands on the Datuk Yeoh Choo Hock Chal­lenge Tro­phy.

In the Un­der-15 fi­nal, MVP Ke­pong 14 beat Thug Life 8-4 for the ti­tle.

The car­ni­val — held for a the sec­ond year — saw 48 teams com­pet­ing at SKJC Kung Min in Kuala Lumpur.

The car­ni­val is in hon­our of Yeoh Choo Hock, the long­est serv­ing sec­re­tary general of the Malaysian Ama­teur Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

Yeoh is also highly re­spected on the in­ter­na­tional scene as he is a for­mer sec­re­tary general of the Asian Bas­ket­ball Con­fed­er­a­tion (ABF) and a vice pres­i­dent of the In­ter­na­tional Bas­ket­ball Fed­er­a­tion.

Now re­tired, he is still very in­volved in the game in a hon­orary po­si­tion ap­pointed by the ABF as sec­re­tary general emer­i­tus, a rare hon­our in bas­ket­ball.

The unity car­ni­val — which re­quired teams to con­sist of a min­i­mum of two races — was or­gan­ised by Sport­sUnite and MVP Mar­ket­ing and Events and cospon­sored by Milo, Re­vive and Molten Bas­ket­ball.
