In a finale that is sure to go down in history, NYIT-Bahrain’s basketball team claimed the first Ajiaal Basketball League title on Dec. 25, 2010. The team defeated rivals Bahrain Training Institute (BTI) 64-51.
Students from universities across the Kingdom of Bahrain participated in the tournament, which began last October under the auspices of Bahrain’s Minister of Labour, Dr. Majeed Mohsen, and United Nations Information Centre for the GCC countries Director, Nejib Friji.
The tournament was sponsored by Batelco, Bahrain’s principal telecommunications company, which provided free use of the staff center’s indoor basketball courts at its Hamala headquarters.
