Well, I actually went to the Southern Conference in Melaka last week. With 8 pre-lim matches, 4 semi final matches, 2 performances, 2 All Stars challenges, 1 All Stars match and there even games in between for the fans, it was very entertaining indeed.
Have a look at the some of the photos I took that day.
I really love the sportsmanship displayed that day. Every team players shook each other hands before and after each match and they even went over to their opponent’s place and gave them and their supporters a bow.
The highlight of that day, where two PayFong Middle School teams met each other in the semi final match. It’s either PayFong wins or PayFong win. 😛
Cheering for this match was rather easy because everyone was cheering for the same name. XD
This match got very entertaining when one of the PayFong team which is losing in 10 marks picked up in the second round and even managed to score a 2 points in the last second making it a tie. XD
It’s like watching a scripted movie XD. Gosh, it was exciting.
The last match was very good too, it was not as exciting as the PayFongs match but these two teams displayed much more skillful moves and scoring much more points.
Seriously, I enjoyed the whole event very much especially the part where a pretty chick hand me a bottle of water. I don’t really play basketball but I love to watch them and I never thought that our own local matches can be so entertaining and exciting.
Do drop by at the next conference or the final, I’m sure you gonna enjoy them. Oh, you can check out the other conference tomorrow in Ipoh. 🙂
And here’s the teams from Southern Conference to proceed to the Final in KL. Wish them all the best 🙂
