In July 2020, international students at Wuhan University of Science and Technology Huangjiahu campus hosted a basketball tournament that commenced on 12th July to 19th August 2020. The tournament was named WUST 2K20 Basketball League.
The idea for a student’s basketball league was influenced by the rise of new players in the campus and the competitive spirit amongst the players. The league was composed of three teams made up of seven players per team, and the NBA mode of tournament was used, that is, each team had to play six games, and at the end of the league, the top two teams were eligible for the finals series. The two teams that had qualified for the finals had to play a series of 3 games to determine the winner of the tournament, and the winner of two out of the three games for the finals was the overall winner of the competitions.
There were 3 officials who were responsible in officiating each game, who were also required to dress in uniformity, this helped in maintaining discipline and fairness of each game. Before the last final game was played, some activities were held so as to motivate people into basketball, to discover individual skills and to have fun. The activities were 3 point contest and Skills challenge. The winners of each was awarded a medal.
