Invitational U'11 Basketball Tournament Success

Patana Invitational U’11 Basketball Tournament Success

On Friday 2nd October and following our busy sporting week of Aquathlons and Interclass Basketball, we hosted our Invitational Basketball Tournament. We were delighted to host TCIS with a boys and girls team, Bromsgrove with a boys and girls team and Bangkok Prep with a boys team. This enabled us to invited 55 of our own students representing 5 Patana boys teams and 2 girls to complete our 2 boys and 1 girl pools.

The boys games started fast and furiously as their enthusiasm got the better of them, which resulted is same very entertaining but low scoring encounters as the frantic pace failed to allow any composure under the basket. All of the teams played well though and it was great to see the communication and team understanding improve and develop as the tournament progressed. Special mention must go to our Tiger Cubs who were all from Year 4 and although results did not go their way they played with confidence and showed great potential for the future. Our Tigers team developed in confidence throughout and played a great team game finishing unbeaten and 1st in their group. The Patana Black Team also performed well coming 2nd in their group losing out to a great 3 pointer from Bangkok Prep. The Patana Oranges also played with great spirit but often failed to turn their possession in points leaving them 3rd in their group. Our Year 5 Blue Team can also take great pride in their improving play as the tournament progressed leaving them as 3rd in their group as well. Finally the Tiger Cubs just missed out on some height under the rebound as they enjoyed their first taste of competitive basketball finishing 4th in Group B.

In the boys finals 1st place in each group played one another as did to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th placed teams and everyone raised their games for their respective final. After same very tight games and even some that went to extra time, the boys results were as follows:

Boys Results

1st           Patana Tigers

2nd          Bangkok Prep

3rd           Patana Black

4th           Bromsgrove

5th           Patana Orange

6th           Patana Blue

7th           TCIS

8th           Patana Tiger Cubs

In the girls pool, our Tigers certainly did not have the same problem as the boys under the basket scoring 22 points in their 3 group games alone, finishing the group stage unbeaten. The Patana Black team which included many Year 5 children once again improved their understanding and performance as the tournament progressed finishing 3rd in the group. Both teams then maintained their shooting prowess scoring 10 points each on the way to their respective final wins where they really did play some very positive basketball.

Girls Results

1st           Patana Tigers

2nd          TCIS

3rd           Patana Black

4th           Bromsgrove

 All of the teams should feel very proud of their performances and it certainly proved to be a positive stepping stone towards the BISAC tournaments on the 7th November.

Thank you to the coaches who supported our teams Mr.Chris, Mr.Amuchou, Khun Patcharee, Ms.Gibson, and myself. Also to all of the parents who supported (without the use of drums) and made the atmosphere so positive for all of the children involved.

 Keep practicing those shots under pressure!
