Flying dunk nets a winner

Cagers battling it out at the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge 2015 at Penang Times Squar.
INDONESIAN Sudyanto, 21, purposely flew in from Medan to get a ‘competition feel’ at the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge 2015 at Penang Times Square in George Town.

The college student did not return home empty-handed as he was one of the two winners of the side event ‘StarMetro Slam Dunk Competition’. He had spectators in awe with his powerful ‘flying dunk’ that saw him leaping for the basket from a distance.“Practice makes perfect. I practise a lot back home as I love basketball a lot.

“But there are not many competitions in my hometown. “When I heard of this competition, I knew I had to come here with my friends and our coach. “This is my first trip here and it is a worthwhile one. It was good to be up against the challenge. The food here is outstanding too,” he said.

Another winner of the ‘Slam Dunk Competition’ was 19-year-old college student Lee Zheng Qin. Zheng Qin won the heart of judge Wayne Ooi Chong Yew with his performance of jumping over two of his two friends and putting the ball into the basket. 

“I can jump very high because I used to represent my school in high jump. I never thought I could win. I just gave it my best and it turned out to be one of the best,” he said.

Both Sudyanto and Zheng Qin received a Milo hamper, a Spalding basketball and a StarMetro trophy from The Star news editor (regional) K. Suthakar.

Suthakar also gave away prizes to the top three winners of the ‘In Search of Streetballer Competition’ Chua Zheng Xuan, 16, Goh Tee En, 16, and Ang Chuan Heng, nine. The trio will now battle it out with winners of other states at the grand finals for the AND1 Street-baller title which comes with a RM3,000 contract along with various merchandise.

Catching the eyes of the public and judge was Chuan Heng, who was clearly not overawed by the event despite his young age.He put up a few tricks that made him outstanding among the other contestants. “I always view YouTube videos to learn the latest streetball tricks and skills,” he said.

A total of 190 teams took part in the streetball challenge that was divided into four categories — Boys Under-12, Boys Under-15, Boys Under-18 and Men Under-21. The top three winners in each category won World of Sports vouchers worth RM900, RM600 and RM300 respectively.

W.O.S. World Of Sports (M) Sdn Bhd international trade coordinator Susan Cheong said the competition went smoothly and the weather had been kind to the players. “It was not very hot and participants got to enjoy themselves with some good workout,” she said.

After the two legs at IOI Mall, Puchong, and Penang Times Square, the next will be at Sutera Mall, Johor, in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur in November. Malaysia Basketball Association sanctioned the competition. StarMetro is the official media partner of the tournament. Milo is the official beverage sponsor and Spalding is the official ball partner.

Slam dunk success on the cards

Aiming to be better: Coaching clinic participants honing their shooting skills under the watchful eye of Tan. 
THE 10th edition of the upcoming AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge 2015 at Penang Times Square is attracting not only Penangites but also enthusiasts from other states.

Half of the teams registered so far are from Perlis, Kedah and Perak and the organiser has limited the entries to 200 teams. Freelance basketball coach Tan Chee Wan said young cagers from Kulim, Alor Setar, Kubang Pasu, Ipoh, Krian and Kangar have confirmed their participation.

“They have chartered buses to come to Penang for the competition. Most of them are players from MVP Basketball Academy,” he said before conducting a coaching clinic at SJK (C) Yang Cheng in Teluk Kumbar, Penang, recently.

“Good players possess not only skills but show the right temperament during competitions. In this way, they grow to become better players.”

A total of 42 players took part in the coaching session which was conducted ahead of the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge to be held at the Penang Times Square on Aug 15.

The session began with a warm-up drill. Then, the players were given pointers on ball handling, dribbling, passing and landing on one foot following a lay-up. Tan said he tried to conduct his training in an interesting manner so the players would get hooked to the game.Two certified coaches Ooi Jun Kai and Bryan Loh helped him.

SK Sacred Heart student G.M. Vicknesh, 14, said the training session under Tan was an eye-opener. “His approach is very different. You won’t feel tired or bored because most of the running is already incorporated into part of the drills,” he said.

Organised by W.O.S. World of Sports (M) Sdn Bhd, the competition will be divided into four categories — Boys’ Under-12, Boys’ Under-15, Boys’ Under-18 and Men’s Under-21.Registration fee is at RM90 per team and each player will receive a Spalding jersey and a Spalding basketball on the event day.

Each streetball team will play at least twice in a round robin of three teams in the preliminary rounds. The top three winners in each category will walk away with World of Sports vouchers worth RM900, RM600 and RM300 respectively.

The one-day event will also feature ‘In Search of Streetballer Competition’, ‘StarMetro Slam Dunk Competition’, ‘Best Shooter Competition’ and lucky draw with limited edition products of AND1.

Penang Times Square is hosting the second leg after the first at IOI Mall, Puchong, last month.Next up will be a leg at Sutera Mall, Johor, in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur in November.

For the grand finals, the top three free- stylists from each leg will be invited to battle for the AND1 streetballer title which will come with a RM3,000 contract along with merchandise.

Entry forms can be obtained at Hoops Station in Penang Times Square, Sports Town in Gurney Plaza, CWA Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd in Siam Road and Studio Life Habitat in Megamal Pinang, Butterworth. The competition is sanctioned by Malaysia Basketball Association.

No sweat for freelance coach

Tan (in white) giving instructions to his young charges as they go through the drills during a coaching clinic at SJK(C) Wen Khai in Batu Maung.

GETTING young children to attend training can be a tough task.But freelance basketball coach Tan Chee Wan has his own way of making things interesting for his young charges.

After all, he is a frequent traveller to the Philippines, where he picked up ideas and pointers from coaches touted as the best in the South-East Asia region.

“The Philippines is the basketball powerhouse in this region.“Over there, you won’t get to see children being told to run 20 rounds on the court just to warm up. That’s a very old style of training.

“They emphasise on the fundamental basketball skills, and incorporate interesting methods into their training. “Players won’t feel bored easily and they always look forward to training sessions,” he said after conducting a recent two-hour coaching clinic at SJK (C) Wen Khai in Batu Maung, Penang.

A total of 42 pupils aged between seven and 12 benefitted from the training session, which was held ahead of the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge to be held at the Penang Times Square on Aug 15.

The session began with the players going through the drill to strengthen their muscles and improve their agility and movement.Then they are given pointers on ball handling, dribbling and passing. Tan said the formative years were vital as young players needed strong foundation to reach the top of the game.

“It is vital to expose youngsters to new training techniques in order to keep up with the modern game. “My activities are focused on the basic techniques. The players need to get this right before we talk about tactical game plan.

“We are here to create an interest among budding cagers and develop their potential further,” he said. Citing an example, Tan said one of his charges who was now a Kedah state player, could ‘spring and dunk’ at the age of 14.

“He went through the right training during the formative years and his calf muscles were strong.“He also had sound footwork and all the basic skills,” he said.

During the session, Tan also gave out T-shirts and jerseys as prizes to some of the best performers. The first leg of the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge was held at the IOI Mall, Puchong last month.Penang Times Square will host the second leg on Aug 15, followed by Sutera Mall, Johor in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur in November.

There will be four categories – Boys’ Under-12, Boys’ Under-15, Boys’ Under 18 and Men’s Under-21. For the grand finals, the top three freestylists from each leg will be invited to battle for the AND1 streetballer title which comes with a RM3,000 contract along with merchandise.

The competition is sanctioned by Malaysia Basketball Association. StarMetro is the official media partner of the tournament, Milo is the official beverage sponsor, Spalding is the official ball partner and Penang Times Square is the official venue sponsor.

Participants of AND1 Streetball Challenge show lots of skill

StarMetro representative Jarod Lim presenting the top two prize of the StarMetro Slam Dunk competition to Stephan Wan, 17
IF PERFORMING Michael Jordan’s famous flying dunk is not enough, basketball player Stephan Wan has more tricks up his sleeve.

It was his perfectly executed self alley-oop dunk that won the StarMetro Slam Dunk competition during the first leg of the AND1 Streetball Challenge at IOI Mall, Puchong.

The confidence shown by the 17-year-old Raub-born youngster was well reflected in his performance as it was completed nicely without hesitation.

“I knew I was going to win the competition but other players showed some really good dunks.“There is a basketball hoop in my house and I practise often,” he said.

Playing for the Los Angelos (LA) Lakers Big Three, it is not difficult to guess that Wan is a big fan of the NBA team.“I am a big fan of Kobe Bryant of the LA Lakers.“Sometimes, I do freestyle basketball too,” he said.

Wan was among 15 participants who took part in the Slam Dunk competition. The other winner of the contest was Mun Tze Qian, 15, who plays for Secret 15 B.

The slam dunk competition was one of the side show events that added to the thrill of the annual AND1 basketball challenge.

Others competitions included Best Shooter competition as well as the Streetballer competition, where participants were awarded marks according to several criteria, such as dribbling, juggling, originality, creativity and finishing.

Kedahan Mohammad Aizzat Iskandar, 19, who was one of the winners of the Streetballer competition, said he sought inspiration from YouTube to diversify his freestyle basketball moves.

“I learnt some of the dribbling skills online such as the Ankle Breaker as well as Shammgod crossover moves, which I have also performed at the Streetball competition.

“The skills allow me to fool other opponents on the court.“I just tried my best during the Streetball competition and I am glad I won the competition,” he said.

Winners of each leg of the Streetball competition will battle it out at the In Search of Streetballer grand final.
For the AND1 streetball challenge, the five categories for the 3 on 3 this year are: Boys Under-12, Boys Under-15, Boys Under-18, Girls Under-18 and Men’s Under-21.

AND1 organiser W.O.S. World of Sport executive director Saw Swee Leong said 313 teams took part in the three-on-three Streetball Challenge.

“It comes up to more than 900 participants in total. “This year is the 12th edition of the AND1 Streetball Challenge and it has always been a platform for youngsters to hone their basketball skills.“Playing for seven minutes per game definitely ups the adrenaline and challenge when players have to deliver the points. “Although the game is slightly different from mainstream basketball, the streetball version manages to attract a lot of interest especially among youths,” he said.

The following legs will be in Penang Times Square, Penang in August, Sutera Mall, Johor in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur, in November.

For the grand finals, the top three freestylists from each leg will be invited to battle for the AND1 streetballer title, which will come with a RM3,000 contract along with merchandise.

StarMetro is the official media partner of the tournament, Milo is the official beverage sponsor and Spalding is the official ball partner.

Young basketball players told dream big

Good turnout: Sekolah Sri USCI students who attended the AND1 basketball clinic

YOUNG basketball players who want to go far should embrace their talents and not limit themselves by being afraid to dream big.

“Players don’t dare to dream,” said former Selangor junior basketball coach Sue Teck Hua after a AND1 basketball clinic at Sekolah Sri UCSI, in Subang Jaya, Selangor.

With this year’s AND1 challenge drawing closer, Sue is helping the boys learn a few drills that focus on both individual and team skills which can help them not just during the AND1 three-on-three event, but also in their school’s co-curriculum.

The first leg of the tournament will be on June 14 at IOI Mall in Puchong, Selangor, featuring the main three-on-three event, the StarMetro slam dunk competition, shooting competition and the special “Search for AND1 streetballer” challenge.

Sue touched on ball handling, passing, defence formations, jumping techniques and core exercises during the two-hour clinic.

“The ‘shell drill’ is to prepare them for team defence during games,” explained the former junior coach, who wanted to make the clinic “not like their usual training”.

Sue also instructed the boys to practise dribbling as low as they could.

“Our players can dribble well but they are not used to dribbling low, if you can dribble the ball just a few inches off the ground, it won’t be easy for your opponent to steal your ball,” he explained.

“Most of the boys are skilled but progression is key and they have to set goals for themselves,” he said.
With this year’s AND1 Streetball challenge continuing with the same format as previous editions, basketballers can pit their skills in competition with the main three-on-three event.

They can also demonstrate their shooting and slam-dunk skills as well as freestyle skills in the “Search for streetballer” segment for a chance to win exclusive merchandise from AND1 and Milo at each leg.

The five categories for the three-on-three this year are: Boys Under-12, Boys Under-15, Boys Under-18, Girls Under-18 and Men’s Under-21.

After IOI Mall, Puchong, on June 14, the following legs will be in Penang Times Square, Penang, in August, Sutera Mall, Johor, in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur in November.

The exact dates for the upcoming legs and venue for the grand final will be announced on the organisers’ website.

For the grand finals, the top three freestylists from each leg will be invited to battle for the AND1 streetballer title which will come with a RM3,000 contract along with merchandise.

The first 100 teams to register before May 31 will receive a limited-edition L.A. Lakers basketball in addition to the Spalding ball for each team and AND1 jerseys for each player.

Gearing Up for Another Challenge

Over easy: Chong Jia Xuan, 13, (left) and Soo Jia Horng,13, (right) getting into the swing during the ball-handling drill.

After last year’s successful AND1 Streetball Challenge, organisers of the popular 3-on-3 basketball tournament W.O.S. World of Sports are starting to help players gear up for another edition of the tournament.

Some 30 students from SMK Engku Husain in Semenyih were invited to attend a coaching clinic, headed by Filipino Michael Pascasio and his five assistants, to get an idea of what techniques they needed to focus on to go far in the tournament.

Pascasio and his assistants, who were in town for a separate basketball tournament, ran drills for the boys and girls, focusing on legwork, dribbling and ball-handling in a high-intensity session, like the pace during a three-on-three game.

Pascasio said: “With five-on-five you can use transition offence or defence plays and there are more systems and options with five players available.”

He added that in three-on-three games, the three players are doing both offence and defence all the time and it is the more physical game as it requires playing inside the key.

Pascasio also shared his thought on what made a good three-man team — an experienced point guard, a good shooting guard and a legit centre player who can perform strongly in the key.

“The boys and girls need to keep practising their ball handling, dribbling and the drills to improve their movement,” he added.

SMK Engku Husain student Leong Kok Wai, 14, who was with team Jordan, winners in last year’s AND1 Under-13 category, confessed “it was not hard to win at last year’s event”.

“However, this year I will be facing the older boys and it will not be easy,” said the now Selangor State Under-15 player, who vowed to work harder to improve his game.

The finale at Berjaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur last year saw 300 teams in action from dawn till dusk, with teams from Secret Academy nabbing top spots in the girls Under-18, boys Under-15 and boys Under-18 categories.


Preparing for tourney: Nestle sports marketing manager Ng Ping Loong (centre) with the students who attended the clinic.

While the main three-on-three event has always attracted basketballers to pit their skills in competition, they can also demonstrate their shooting and slam-dunk skills as well as freestyle skills in the “search for streetballer” segment for a chance to win exclusive merchandise from AND1 and Milo at each leg.

The five categories for the three-on-three this year are: Boys Under-12, Boys Under-15, Boys Under-18, Girls Under-18 and Men’s Under-21.

The tournament will follow the same format as previous editions, travelling around the peninsula with the first-leg to be held at IOI Mall in Puchong, Selangor on June 14.

The following legs will be in Penang Times Square, Penang, in August, Sutera Mall, Johor, in September and the grand final in Kuala Lumpur in November.

The exact dates for the upcoming legs and venue for the grand final will be announced on the organisers’ website.

For the grand finals, the top three freestylists from each leg will be invited to battle for the AND1 streetballer title which will come with a RM3,000 contract along with merchandise.

The first 100 teams to register before May 31 will receive a limited-edition L.A. Lakers basketball in addition to the Spalding ball for each team and AND1 jerseys for each player.

FIFTEEN youths gained valuable advice and boosted their basketball game after another AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge coaching clinic, headed by former national youth coach Sue Teck Hua.

The clinic was the last for this year’s series organised in conjunction with the 3x3 tournament and was held at the Pusat Rekreasi JKKK Batu 11 Cheras covered basketball court in Kuala Lumpur last Friday.

During the two-hour session, Sue and his assistant Wong Chien Teck conducted drills and dispensed tips on the art of basketballing.

Budding basketballers at the clinic were all eyes and ears as the coaches pointed out errors in their techniques and shared the more effective methods.

Sue is a firm believer that fitness and solid techniques make for a good player and commended the youths whom he found to be very athletic.

Streetball swagger on show

The competition in full swing during the AND1 3x3
Streetball Challenge in Penang Times Square.
DESPITE a downpour, some 540 players from 180 teams turned up for the AND1 3x3 Streetball Challenge at Penang Times Square.

Into its 11th year, the event organised by W.O.S. World of Sports (M) Sdn Bhd saw participants vying for a total of RM7,200 in prize money in four categories — Men Under-21, Boys Under-18, Under-15 and Under-13.

However, the organiser had to cancel some of the planned highlights such as the Slam Dunk, Best Shooter and Best Streetballer competitions due to the unfavourable weather condition on Saturday.

After a delay, the organiser decided to stage a free-throw shooting contest instead where players tried to score from a standing position at a fixed distance.

Stamina vital for young cagers

TO become a good basketball player, budding cagers especially those below the age of 15 will need to play more streetball and basketball games.

Basketball coach Tan Chee Wan, 46, believes body-contact sports could help young players improve their individual fundamental skills and stamina.

“All youths should be involved in these kind of games so that they will be fit enough to participate in tournaments.

“They need to increase their stamina to last from morning to evening,” he said.

With 31 years of playing basketball under his belt, Tan has been training youths at the MVP Basketball Academy in Kedah, Penang and Selangor since 10 years ago.

Tan said the concept of his coaching clinic was simple — to introduce basic fundamental training skills.

“Here, players are introduced to dynamic stretching, which is a more intense warm-up session but it helps to activate muscles.

Shooting hoops the right way Students get professional advice at basketball clinic

DESPITE the scorching heat, 30 students of SMK Sin Min (Private) in Sungai Petani, Kedah, were all ears as they listened attentively to the advice given by professionals during the AND1 basketball clinic.

In the two-hour session, national basketball player Ng Sing Tee, 25, and a Kuala Lumpur player Yong Kok Wai, 26, shared insights and several tips about the game.

The students were then taught how to dribble, shoot and apply ‘defensive duty’.

To emphasise dribbling, Ng used tennis balls to stress on the importance of ball control and focus.
“Dribbling is one of the most important aspects in basketball.

“Using a tennis ball is a new technique in Malaysia. Some players are too focused on dribbling and pay little attention to others during the game,” he said during the clinic at the school recently.

In fact, almost everyday both of them would play basketball with their friends or have a friendly sibling one-on-one between them.

Darren said that unlike other children their age, both of them constantly watched professional basketball matches in particular National Basketball Association (NBA) games on television rather than cartoons.

“We do not have any preferred teams or players but we just like basketball and just like any team sports it encourages teamwork than individual skills,” he said after the clinic held at Skudai here.
Meanwhile, Jack believes the clinic would help him develop his skills to become a much better player in the future.

“It will be good to see talented players rise from the AND1 tournament, it is not an easy tournament to win.” said Ng, who is a former participant of the clinic.
