SINGAPORE — Some 80 students from 11 secondary schools got first-hand basketball coaching from Singapore Slingers forward Steven Khoo and retired Malaysian national player and current National Basketball League (NBL) Malaysia Commissioner Tan Kee Hian at MediaCorp’s MEon3 Basketball Clinic yesterday.

Held at Anglican High School, the clinic is part of MediaCorp’s efforts to reach out to youth and promote the sport here. It is also part of the build-up to next month’s MEon3 Ultimate Streetball Challenge at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza (June 15-16). Also present to interact with the students were MediaCorp artistes Jeffrey Xu and Elizabeth Lee, and four bloggers including Smith Leong.

“The kids were a little shy at first, but normally at such clinics, we don’t look at how good they are but their attitude, which was great,” said 41-year-old Tan, who worked with the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers in a number of roles, including marketing and public relations, and is now Managing Director of NBL Sports Marketing.

“They were a bit shy at first because they were surprised to see the guests at the clinic.”
