Our beloved Alma mater West Negros University hosted the PSC-SBP Discovery Womenâ€™s 1st Invitational Basketball Competition last 28th of September 2011. It was participated by four teams coming from China, Thailand, Qatar and Philippines. The competition was held at our university gym in a full packed home crowd of Bacolenos.
It was a very enjoyable event, amidst the cheers and encouragements of the basketball enthusiasts, the players gave their best, with Thailand team winning the first round against Chinaâ€™s team. The Chinese team was very tall, but was no match against the Thai team led by their team captain Gai… I had the opportunity to talk to the Thai team and welcome them to our city.
The players came from different provinces in Thailand and were attending classes at Thammasart University in Bangkok. The event was first of those sports held in the city for the forthcoming Masskara Festival next month.
