Ernakulam favourite

MANJERI: Defending champion Ernakulam will start favourite in the men's section as the 51st Akbar Travels senior State basketball championships get underway at the GBHSS ground here on Wednesday.

Ernakulam, effectively the Customs and Central Excise team, will be without the services of its star player Subash Shenoy, who is currently attending the Indian camp, but that will not diminish the side's chances as it has better all-round players to make up for Subash's absence.

Thiruvananthapuram, which will be loaded with players from KSEB, will be hoping to take advantage of Shenoy's absence. Thiruvananthapuram, drawn in Pool `B', barring any upset, is likely to meet Ernakulam in the final. Thrissur, Kottayam and Idukki are the sides capable of creating an upset.
