Highlights of the 1st day of competition
Saturday 12th March
This proved to be a tough competition and there was little separating the top 5 teams. Any win-loss change would have dramatically changed the outcome, however KTJ from Malaysia came through unbeaten and played a positive brand of basketball to be named champions.
This was also a tight competition with only 3 points covering 2nd to 5th place. The British School KL played unbeaten with 5 wins and a draw and were deservedly crowned the champions. Host school St Andrews Green Valley played adventurously and with three wins and two draws secured the silver medal. Bangkok Prep rounded out the top 3.

Bangkok Prep ran away with this competition winning all six matches in empathic style clinching the Champion’s trophy. 2nd place went to BSKL and 3rd place to the home school; St Andrews.
In a very tight competition British School Beijin, Shunyi forged ahead by winning five matches and drawing the other match. This was enough to finish ahead of Dulwich College Seoul and BSKL who were 2nd and 3rd respectively.
