Shweta helps Indian Gym to an easy victory

The 18-year-old scored fourteen points .

Indian Gymkhana had an easy win yesterday thanks to their top scorer Shweta Kamath who made the St Anthony look ordinary on the court. Both the teams had descent players in their team but Indian Gymkhana's attacking play right from the start sealed off an easy victory for the Matunga team. The end scores were one sided with 35-18 in favour of Indian Gymkhana of the D B Prabhu Memorial Basketball Tournament held at Indian Gymkhana yesterday.
The Micheal Jordan fan has been a consistent performer for the Indian Gymkhana; the same place where she sharpens her basketball skills. Youngest of the two kids it was her aunt that inspired her to take up the sport. Starting basketball at the age of eight it was the mere excitement that caught her eye to take up the sport.
When asked about if she wants to pursue her career in the sport she said, "There is no career in Basketball, you can't depend on this sport for living. I just play the sport for fun." Being the top scorer of the match her school and college records has also been pretty impressive and have played Nationals at School and College level. Being the top scorer with 14 points, her best performance was in a Ghatkopar tournament when she scored 28 points. Talking about their chances in the tourney she says, "If we win in the semis our chances of winning the finals are very high."
RESULTS: Girls U-18: Indian Gymkhana 35 (Shweta Kamath-14pts, Nandini Balkrishnan-8pts) bt St.Anthony 18 (Esha.D-6pts) Holy cross 36 (Bhargavi-14 pts) bt N.B.A 1
