DEFENDING champion Kings banked on rookies Ajeet Singh and Vladimir Singh to beat the Bombay Bombers, 76-71, in the 2008 Filipino-Indian Basketball League (FIBL) which kicked off on April 20 at The Arena in San Juan.

Ajeet had 23 points and nine rebounds but it was Vladimir’s two crucial interceptions in the dying seconds which sealed the victory for the Kings.

Vladimir, who finished with 11 points and a game-high 16 rebounds, earned the game’s best player honor.

Mukesh Mohnani fired 35 points, grabbed eight rebounds and dished out three assists to power the Knights over the Bombay Bomber, 95-76, in the 2008 FIBL Goodwill Cup last Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.

The heroic efforts of the Bombers triumvirate composed of Ravi Gurnamal, Lavesh Chulani and Kishore Mirpuri, and the arrival of Chand Daryanani who missed his team’s first game, were put to naught as Mohnani scored 18 of his points in the second half.

The Knights outscored the Bombers 55-36 in the second half to pull away and claim their first win of the season.

"Our game plan was to execute well on defense and to slow down Kishore and Ravi,’’ Knights coach Jing Ruiz said.

"The fact that we played without Preteek Chandnani, Raj Talwar and Bebo Mengrajani and with Ramesh Mirchandani and still we won really feels good. I just paced the boys well and we ran out offense well,’’ he said.

Mohnani got plenty of help from his teammates, with new acquisition Ramesh Mirchandani doing damage in the paint and finishing with 18 points while grabbing 16 rebounds.

Prashant Dargani exploded for 16 points as he peppered the hole with four 3s, while rookie Rajesh Assnani scored 12 points off the bench.

Gurnamal led the Bombers with 21 points and 15 rebounds while Kishore Mirpuri had a double-double performance with 15 points and 20 boards. The Bombers fell to their second loss in as many outings.

In the second game, 2007 MVP Manoj Chandumal, facing his former team, exploded for 24 points as the Blue Sharks clobbered the defending champion Kings, 81-57. It was the second win in as many games for the Sharks.

FIBL Commissioner Dilip Budhrani said he expects the level of intensity of games to rise as they head to cruial games of the league supported by sponsors Bikram Yoga Manila, Esquire Financing, Businessman’s Club, AXN, Van Heusen, RayBan, Phiten, Oakley, WSNP Electronics, David’s Salon and Molten, the Official Ball.

THE Bombay Bombers blew a huge lead before notching their first win, beating the Blue Sharks, 65-58, in the 2008 FIBL Goodwill Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

Ravi Gurnamal led the balanced attack of the Bombers with 15 points. He also grabbed five rebounds and issued five assists. Kishore Mirpuri was a monster inside, netting 11 points, clearing 14 boards and blocking five shots.

But the key to victory was their defense on reigning MVP Manoj Chandumal. The Bombers held him scoreless until 3:50 in the third period.

Chandumal rallied in the fourth period when Chandumal finally got his bearing. He eventually finished with 13 points, but the Blue Sharks fell short.

In the other game, rookies Vladimir Singh and Ajeet Sing led the Kings past the Knights, 88-72.

The Kings tore the game apart in the third period, outscoring the Knights, 20-12 to take a 62-46 lead.

Games Sunday
(The Arena, San Juan)
4:30 p.m. — Kings vs Bombay Bombers
6:30 p.m. — Blue Sharks vs Knights



Ajeet Singh scored a personal-high 29 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to power the Kings past the Knights, 75-68, at the close of the second round in the 2008 FIBL Goodwill Cup Sunday night at The Arena in San Juan.


Trailing 45-56 early in the final frame, Ajeet sparked a blazing rally by clustering 11 points highlighted by three triples to snatch the pivotal lead, 60-58.

The Kings never looked back as the Knights failed to mount a comeback.

The win halted a two-game skid for the defending champion Kings, but more importantly secured them the second seed and the twice-to-beat incentive in the semifinals.

The victory was also a fitting welcome for the Kings mentor Mike Advani, who returned from the United States after attending a training camp with the San Beda Red Lions.

It was a disappointing loss for the Knights, who drew 27 points from their ace Mukesh Mohnani.

The Knights, who slipped to the bottom of the totem pole, finished with 2-4 win-loss card in the eliminations and will face the league-leading Blue Sharks next.

In the second game, Chand Daryanani, accounted for three spectacular plays in the clutch, finished with 33 points to lead the Bombers to a 77-71 double overtime victory over the Blue Sharks.

off topic eto, pero magtayo na lang Cricket League ang mga local Indians dito. They are well known in that kind of game. Malay mo baka magkahilig ang mga Pilipino sa larong ito.
