Satnam Singh has stepped forward to announce his alliance with the UBAU and EUSAI to aid and enhance the advancement and infiltration of basketball throughout India. There has been increased desire and attention to the sport of basketball in India, of late, with prime network adoption of the University Tournament. The tournament parallels the US' March Madness, known as Indian Insanity. In addition, the introduction of a professional league offers collegiate athletes the opportunity for advancement on a pro level.
