Last year, 2K Asia started the NBA 2K Ultimate B-Ball competition for Singapore schools, and this year the competition ballooned in size as there were twice as many school entered, for a total of 27 schools.
The winners this year were from Singapore Chinese Girls School, and the team consisted of Woon Wei Jing, Chloe Alphonso, Charmaine Koh, Ong Li Ping, Bernice Yeo, Ceres Suwe and Rachel Mok. They beat out other schools like Anglo Chinese School (Barker Road) and New Town Secondary School.
The competition consists of three events:
- Five-on-five full court basketball
- One-on-one NBA 2K13 quick-match
- Team cheerleading
The winner is decided by an overall score accumulated by competing in the three events, and the SCGS girls won with 87 points and took back a whopping S$10,000 of prize money for their school!
Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, if you think about it. Who says videogames and sports aren’t good activities for students?
