Bounce Club overpowered Neighborhood Club by 52- 45 in the final game to claim the title of 2019 Shohada-E-Pakistan Basketball Tournament which concluded successfully at Arambagh basketball court in Karachi.


The final encounter of this mega tournament was all about Bounce Basketball Club being in control of the game as they outgunned their opponents: tournament favorites, Neighborhood Basketball Club, thanks to some unselfish basketball with their 52- 45 advantage.

The boys from both the sides played their hearts out as they left all on the line in this final game but it was not an embarrassing blowout for  Neighborhood Basketball Club's players as they fell short on by only few points. 
Mohsin Riaz came through for Bounce Club, dropping 20 points along with 15 successful shot of Rehab Naeem. Zia Ahmed also contributed for his team's title victory with managing 10 points. 

While for the other side that lost the game and now stands at the runner-up spot,  Neighborhood Club will have to reassess and study what went wrong during their late-game implosion as  Abdullah Khan and Ali Jaffer's 10 points each with well assistance of 09 points by Seemi Gillani still could not earn them the title of the tournament.

The winning teams and participants were awarded with cash prizes and certificates, respectively by the hands of honorable chief guest, Col Mazhar Hussain.
