UTP Basketball League 2010

For this year Rakan Kecergasan SRMUTP in collaboration
with Co-curriculum unit UTP hosted UTP Basketball League. This is the first time such event held in UTP. With the theme “The Spirit of Sport”, we inspire the students to involve in basketball. This tournament organized based on Rules and Regulations of Law International Basketball as determined by FIBA. This is a great opportunity for UTP students to have “first-hand” experience in managing an event of this magnitude where their “soft-skills” such as management, communication and leadership can be enhanced. It is our hope that more talented players will be discovered, and be encouraged to take their game to the next level. There are six teams took part in UTP Basketball League for this year, consist of local, international student and also UTP staff. On the 24th February 2010, drawing ceremony was conducted to determine each team place in the group and brief each manager about the rules and regulations. This ceremony was attended by Mr. Nazri B. Abdul Karim, Senior Executive Co-curiculum unit (Sport and Recreation) and the team managers. All the six teams were placed in one group and the top two will move to the final. There were 16 matches for this tournament including final match. The grouping ended on 19th April 2010 and the two teams that moved to the final were PHENOMS and EDGE 2.0. The final match was on 29th April 2010. On that night, EDGE 2.0 won against PHENOMS thus entitled champion for the 1st UTP Basketball League. Last but not least, we would like to express our greatest attitude to everyone who involved in this event especially Mr. Badarolzaman bin Ramli and Mr. Nazri bin Abdul Karim for their help and support throughout this event.
