The Velocity B-Ball Battle 2014 took place at Velocity@Novena as teams of basketballers fought for supremacy under the searing hot sun on 14 September.


The day started with the qualifiers for the respective categories’ finals, and it took place within a caged court just outside Velocity shopping mall.

The unique setting of the outdoor court allowed shoppers and passer-bys by to witness the best three-on-three basketball teams that the heartlands have to offer.

In the men’s finals, Lukut P.D outscored Singapore Supras 11-7 to emerge champions, while SKC Blue took home Under-17 top prize after trouncing Canberra mix 15-5.

“The management was very good, so far we did not focus on this match, we just treated it as a training match, and enjoyed it,” said Sim Zhen of Lukut.

But the day was not only about winning, as friendships were forged and further strengthened while on and off the court.

“It was a great experience, it was great because we got the prizes and got to bond further with each other,” Chee Ming of SKC chirped in.
