BFI President Dr K Govindraj said in a statement, “INBL is not just a league of sports. It is true that millions of basketball fans have long dreamed of a National League in India and we are ensuring it for both men and women.” “We aim to not only have a high quality basketball league but also to focus on every other aspect of the game including bringing in a robust and sustainable process for development at the grassroots level,” he added.
