FASTEST RISING TEAM IN ASIA

In a shot in the arm for the Indian basketball fraternity, the senior Indian men's national team (fondly known as "Young Cagers") have done the nation proud by finishing 8th at the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship for Men. In doing so, the side, with an average age of just 24, established a series of individual and team milestones: 

    • India's 8th Place finish is its best ever since 2003.
    • As a result of India's historic run to the knockout stages, the side has jumped 8 places in the World Rankings to 53rd position, just five places below Asian powerhouse Japan and Chinese Taipei.
    • Power Forward Amjyot Singh (20.9 ppg) finishes among the top five in scorers and his 4 double doubles was the 3rd best overall. Singh also ends among the top ten players in the Championship in rebounds (8.3 rpg), blocks (1.1 bpg), efficiency (+17.1) and freethrow percentage (73.1 FT%). He registers the highest individual score in the Championship, with his 32 points against Palestine in the 2nd round.
    • Guard Vishesh Bhriguvanshi (4.8 apg) finishes among the top five passers, and in the top ten in steals (1.8 spg).
