Indian senior men’s basketball team is all set to participate in the 21st Super Kung Sheung Cup International Basketball Invitation Championship to be held between December 13th to 18th at the Queen Elizabeth stadium in Hong Kong.

The 12-member roster was finalized during the National Coaching Camp which took place from November 28th at the National Basketball Academy in Indore.

The Indian team will leave from Indore later on Saturday night and travel via Mumbai to Hong Kong.

During the Indore camp, former Australian National Women’s team assistant coach Damian Cotter paid a visit, conducting special training sessions.

His visit was coordinated with the assistance of Bengaluru-based sports management company Pursuit India Sports & Entertainment Private Limited.

“Ours is a settled line up and we have been performing well against top Asian sides in the last few years. We are hopeful of winning both our league matches and progressing to the semifinals,” said Head Coach S Bhaskar.

There are nine participating teams divided into three preliminary round groups of 3 teams each. Apart from India, national teams of Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore are also participating in the event.

Three local Hong Kong teams, as well as club teams from USA and China are the other sides in the fray.
