Following two days of heated actions, the champions of the 2016 Cathay NBA Youth Madness basketball tournament has been decided after teams from northern, central, and southern Taiwan competed in the finals at Taipei 101 Fountain Plaza on July 15 and 16.
The first place winner of the boy’s division is Team “Xiao Tao Qi” and the champion team of the girl’s division is “Xiao Lia Kou.” The winners will fly to the US to attend an NBA game.
This year’s contest is co-organized by the Department of Sports and NBA. At the invitation of the organizers, basketball celebrity Andre Roberson from the Oklahoma City Thunder served as the event’s guest of honor and coached young basketball players during a training session at Daan District Sports Center.
In addition, Roberson also took time to attend the shooting of a promotional clip for the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei. The promotional film will be aired in August.
During his 5-day trip to Taiwan, Roberson visited major attractions such as the National Palace Museum, Taipei 101, Longshan Temple, and CKS Memorial Hall. He also took a ride on the Maokong Gondola, observing the beauty of Taipei from a high vantage point.
