大马国际篮球挑战赛即将于9月12日至16日在大马篮总体育馆举行,共有3支本土球会以及3支外国球队参赛,届时请球迷们前来观赏精彩赛事!

除了森美兰金群利外,吉隆坡红男爵及吉隆坡勐龙、澳洲的柏斯全明星队、新加坡的Adroit圣公文化以及上赛季ABL新军印尼泗水群力社骑士,都会参与这项国际赛

金群利将使用两位外援,并重用本土球员。菲律宾控卫杰夫在去年帮助金群利打入珍轩杯半决赛,另一位是美国中锋安东尼沃克(206公分)。这次的比赛会少了养伤的国家队队长郭添源。

 

猛龙则有新帅加盟,并测试他们的新阵容。红男爵则刚夺得8月份厦门国际赛冠军,实力不俗。印尼队将全本土球员上阵,圣公文化则会带外援前来。牌面上,澳洲队应该是大热门。

大马篮总秘书长兼森美兰篮总会长拿督李银芳表示,基于11月大马国家男篮仍有亚锦赛次回合入选赛事,以国家队男篮为班底的森金群利希望能用此次国际赛练兵,对外援的依赖会减至最低。

李银芳也感谢大马篮总会长拿督赖俊瀚,就森篮总提出主办国际邀请赛乐见其成,更认为国家男篮不可以错过任何以赛代练的机会,所以即时认可了这项比赛,更担任大会主席全力支持这项赛事。

门票将在MABA体育场出售,每天RM10.00,12岁及以下免费入场。
