Let the Victors Boast Their Achievements!

University basketball couldn’t have gotten better than it was on the final day of Inter University Basketball Championship at the University of Peradeniya.

“Ask me to play, I’ll play. Ask me to shoot, I’ll shoot. Ask me to pass. I’ll pass. Ask me to steal, block out, sacrifice, lead, and dominate. ANYTHING. It’s not what you ask of me.

Shooting With No Bullets – Mora Invitational Basketball Tournament 2015

When I neared the Mora New Gymnasium early last Friday morning, squeaks of shoes, non-stop sound of a bouncing ball and the reverberation of the calls of encouragement mixed with a lively smell of determination greeted my ears.
