Chennai, 4th May 2015: The Arise Rising Star Tamil Nadu State Level Basketball Tournament concluded earlier today at the Theagaraya Nagar Corporation Grounds in Chennai. In the women’s section, the fancied Southern Railway women’s side had no trouble beating Jeppiar Institute of Technology (JIT) 66-33. The Southern Railway side featuring internationals Anitha Pauldurai, Appoorva Muralinath and Rajapriyadarshini, apart from other vastly experienced role players were too much to handle for their amateur college opponents from the city.
In the men’s section, taking full advantage of the absence of the Indian Overseas Bank team, Indian Bank emerged winners beating ICF 70-49. Promising college baller from Madras University Anto Bethle (representing Indian Bank as guest player) and Ramya (from JIT) were named most valuable players in the tournament in the men and women sections respectively.
