The Indian National Basketball Team drubbed all comers in this year's South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Basketball Qualifiers held at New Delhi.

The Indians romped thru the competition, beating the opposition by an average of 67 points. 

Aside from India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka all competed in the tournament for the lone SAARC slot in the 2011 FIBA-Asia Men's Championship to be held in Wuhan, China in September. Nobody, though, could hold a candle to the Indians, who used superior height, shooting, and fundamentals to thrash all comers.

Vishesh Bhriguvanshi is India's ace.
