Shreema Shetty top scored with 13, 9 and 17 respectively in these games and has been the star performer for Divine Child this season.

Their counterparts in Pool A, Bombay Scottish, who reached the finals of the under 16 Mumbai Schools tournament, were eager to get their campaign on track. They have beaten P G Garodia in both their home and away fixtures. They have also scored a win over Shishuvan School earlier in the week. In both the games against P G Garodia, Anjali Narain single handedly decimated her opponents.

Anjali Narain scored 29 and 28 points in the first and second games respectively. Now the challenge for the Scottish girls will be the Pool leader Divine Child, who is are also in fine form.

In the boys’ section, Fr Agnel continued their dominance. Although their Don Bosco 2opponents, Don Bosco High School played the hearts out in front of their home crowd, it was not enough. Tanmay Mali, just returning back from the Under 17 school nationals was in great touch. He scored 36 of his team’s 67 points. The first 3 quarters saw some exciting basketball, as Don Bosco would cut the lead every time the boys from St. Agnel scored. With not enough offensive push from the Don Bosco team the score board read 67-49 in favour of Fr. Agnel at the end of the final whistle.

Other Result:

St. Joseph (Smith Shinde 8, Jigar r 15) Bt Children’s Academy (Harh J 15, Shubham K 8) 34-32

 About BFI-IMG Reliance School Basketball LeagueBFI in collaboration with the IMG Reliance and State Basketball Associations organize the BFI-IMG Reliance School Basketball League each year across India to help develop a structured, pan-India School League, which will serve as the platform to increase organized basketball participation at grassroots level. The 2013-14 edition of the BFI-IMG Reliance School League will include 2 new cities – Indore and Hyderabad – in addition to last year’s returning 6 cities New Delhi, Mumbai, Indore, Ludhiana, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai. The school winners from all the states will participate in the National Champions Cup to be held in April/May, 2014 in New Delhi. The leagues will comprise of 20 teams per city (10 boys & 10 girls). A total of 1,920 kids and 160 teams will be participating across the country. Each team will play a total of 8 games over a period of 2 months and a total of 640 games will be played during the group stage, which will be followed with a knockout tournament to crown a City Champion. Games will be held at rotating locations in different schools & colleges to provide any institution the opportunity to host the league. One of the main goals of the School League is to start the first pan-India League, as opposed to the current system of competition – tournaments. As part of the 2013-14 School League, BFI and IMG Reliance have put aside money for each participating School for refurbishments of their home courts. With the help of the State Basketball Association, BFI and IMG Reliance hopes this initiative will incentivize schools to invest in basketball.
