Defending champions Regal will be aiming for a rare double as they look to retain their title at next week's Asian Basketball Confederation's (ABC) Champions' Cup at Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur. Regal became the first Hong Kong club to win a major competition in more than 20 years last year. But they face a difficult task after being drawn against professional sides Japan and the Philippines and tough amateurs Lebanon and Thailand in Group A of the competition. Stadium Negara is one of the best known stadiums in Asia and it faces demolition after the ABC Champions' Cup. Regal aim to become the last champions of the tournament before the stadium undergoes renovation in December. Regal will be led by deadly shooter and Asian All-Star Yung Kam-wah and imports Wayman Strickland and John Spencer. Regal confirmed their star players in the ninth edition of the tournament from April 25- May 2. Yung, who used to play in the Taiwanese professional league, said: 'We have virtually the same side as last year but it's going to be more difficult for us this time. 'For one thing, our opposition now know how we play and they will be in a hurry to close us down. 'We will have to play even better than last year if we are to retain our title,' he said. Hosts Malaysia have been drawn against South Korea, Indonesia, China and Uzbekistan in Group B. The draw was conducted at MABA House Conference Hall in Kuala Lumpur. Ten countries will compete in the event.
