For the athletes, fatigue and pain are not that hard to endure in front of victory. All the athletes train hard and practice hard, not only for improving their own skills, but to win the championship of the GDUFS Cup.

The hurrah and excited shouts are heard at the time the ball is thrown into the basket, which not only encourages the dominant team but also gives a warning to the underdog. The fascinating basketball games consist of the athletes’ wonderful teamwork and the stimulation that every audience can experience the intensity and the uncertainty of that who would be the winner of the game, which cannot be decided until the very last moment.
