AUBG Olympics Gathered Basketball Enthusiasts
The long New England winter had hit upon Springfield, Маssachusetts in early December 1891. Dr. James Naismith, a physical education professor, was trying to keep his students interested. He was searching for an indoor game that would actively involve the young folks. After rejecting many ideas that wouldn’t fit in the gymnasium space, he created the basic rules of basketball.
The game, of course, has evolved greatly since then and has become one of the most watched professional sports. Great players such as Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Shaquille O’Neal have further contributed to making the game a state of art.
The range of the people playing basketball varies from students in high schools and universities to the professional players in the big leagues such as the NBA.
The AUBG sports hall hosted this year’s basketball challenge organized by AUBG Olympics. The event went under the motto “Feel the game. Love the game.”
A total of 12 teams, three people each, undertook the challenge to compete against each other in the game. At the end of the event three teams were rewarded for their performance.
The winning teams are the following:
First Place: Heats
Second Place: Black Mamba
Third Place: Main Team
To conclude the challenge I would allow myself to quote the great Michael Jordan,
“Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That’s truly about the game, and in some ways that’s about life too.”
