90th ANNIVERSARY OF YSU FOUNDATION WAS CONGRATULATED BY A CUP
90th ANNIVERSARY OF YSU FOUNDATION WAS CONGRATULATED BY A CUP
From 15th of April to 7th of May he Rolling Cup Basketball Championship was held in YSU in the framework of YSU 90.

This year the cup was won by the team of the Faculty of Biology. With the score 45:35 in the finals they defeated the team of the Faculty of Physics, last years winner of the cup.

The preliminary drawing had included 14 teams from faculties. However, only 13 faculties started the struggle: Biology, Geology, Physics, Radiophysics, Sociology, Chemistry, Philosophy and Psychology, Informatics and Applied Mathematics, International Relations, Law, Theology, History and Economics.

The tournament was held on the Olympic system, with the only difference that the team, defeated, had right to continue to play. Initially, biologists had lost. However, they managed to take this opportunity to become champions. Competitions were haled 4 days a week, 2 games per day.

There is a drawback, and I would like to draw the attention of our student councils on it. Sport events are held frequently, but neither team has got its own uniform. I think it would not be difficult to buy 6-8 pairs of sports uniforms. This will simplify our task, and students will not have to get the uniform every time from somewhere, - said the Head coach, lecturer at YSU Chair Physical Training Vladimir Zakoyan.

Mr. Zakoyan bitterly noted that the level of the game in basketball at our university is very low. There are 1-2 good players in each team, who are the members of clubs for qualification. And where the level of the game is low, the process is more aggressive and the judges are in a strained state.

No girls play in any of the teams. The reason is the complexity of the game and the likelihood of serious injuries. Nevertheless, the University has a Womens team, which participates in the Interuniversity competitions and shows rather high results.

The fans inspired the competing teams with great enthusiasm. The teams, which took the first three places, received degrees of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd category, and the cup found its destination at the Faculty of Biology.
