Asian National Teams
India - India pin hopes on junior hoopsters


After good performances by its junior teams in the recent past, the Basketball Federation of India?s (BFI) latest strategy for its senior team is to have a liberal dose of juniors.

The experiment is going to be tried out in the 22nd FIBA Asia championship, to which a 15-member senior women?s team is being sent out. The Asian meet will be held in Incheon, Korea, from June 3 to 10. At the last edition in China, India had finished 10th out of 16 teams.

"The Asian meet is always a strong one, but we?re hoping that with this team we?ll better our last performance," said BFI secretary general Harish Sharma.

"The girls had been preparing for this tournament through the two-month national camp that was on at the SAI Centre in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, and hence go well-prepared," Sharma said.

"In the team, five girls ? Kiranjit Kaur, Akanksha Singh, Rashmi Channegowda, Bharti and Raspreet Sidhu ? are from our junior talent group and we hope this mixture of exuberance of youth and experience of the seniors will be the perfect blend for success. I hope they have been able to bridge the fitness gap that has always proved a handicap," Sharma added.
Respect and thanks for everything:

Alvertis, Bodiroga, Jasikevicius, Radja, Wilkins, Vrankovic, Fotsis, Rebraca, Kattash, Gentile, Koch, Middleton, Kutluay, Rogers, Papadopoulos, Becirovic, Tomasevic, Siskauskas, Pekovic, Lakovic, Vujanic, Chatzivrettas, Maljkovic, Spanoulis and many more to follow in the near future.
