On November 6th, UNIVERSE CUP 2017 was held with “Unity in Diversity” as the theme at Universitas Padjadjaran (UNPAD). For this prestigious event, EBBRAU performs as a delegate from Economics and Business Faculty of Brawijaya University. After 26 players and 2 officially elected, exercises with high-level discipline is needed to prepare ourselves in for the competition . “An intensive preparation is one way to achieve the desired goal.” Said Bene, as Chairman of EBBRAU in 2017.
For the first game Padjadjaran University becomes the first one to compete EBBRAU’s Women Team. As the University of Tanjung Pura compete against EBBRAU’s Men Team for the first game. Despite losing in the first two games, but the spirit of both teams EBBRAU not slightly reduced. EBBRAU avenged their losses in the first game by beating UNDIP and UNAND in the next game. After successfully defeating Telkom University and University of Marahanatha, EBBRAU with UNPAD University are competing each other for the 3rd winner. But we can only passes the big 4 stage in basketball event between faculty of Java, Sumatera and Bali UNIVERSE CUP 2017.
EBBRAU reaps his disappointment. Preparation for EBBRAU Men’s and Women’s Basketball Team is still need to be improved, the team that departs for UNIVERSE CUP 2017 delegates is a team that has just formed, Getting in round 4 of this tournament does not made the spirit of EBBRAU dissapear. Because we know defeat is a delayed victory.
From here we learn to keep the competitiveness inside and out. Where the strategy pattern provided by the coach does not need to be memorized but also developed to produce improvisation that makes the game run more effectively. Then EBBRAU also did not stop improving the achievements that have been there. Not to forget EBBRAU also need more intensive exercises to improve the ability in the next tournament.
