School basketball stars Law Man-kwong, Law Yi-ting and Cheng Kam-hing have been included in the Hong Kong squad who are aiming to make it three-in-a-row at next month's Super Kung Sheung Cup International Championship. The trio, well known for their outstanding performances in the Nike Summer League, adidas Streetball Challenge and Jing Ying schools tournament, will relish the chance to play against national teams. Hong Kong has received a favourable draw for this year's event. The defending champions are due to meet Malaysia, Singapore and Guangzhou in Group A, while Group B will feature the Philippines, Thailand, the Asian-American Sports Club and Fukien Xin Cheng. The tournament will be held from July 12-17 at Queen Elizabeth Stadium and Hong Kong Coliseum. Man-kwong, 20, a student at CCC Tam Lee Lai Fun Memorial School, plays for Flying Eagles in the Hong Kong First Division. He took up basketball when he was 11 years old. In 2001, his team won the under-16 division of the adidas Streetball Challenge. The following year, he represented Hong Kong at the Asian Youth Championships. He has been a member of the Hong Kong schools team since 2002. 'He is a good leader and a role model, bringing positive energy to his teammates,' said his school coach, Liang Kwun-fan. Yi-ting, 17, a student at Diocesan Boys' School, is a member of First Division side MYAA. He was voted the Most Valuable Player in the 2003 Nike League under-16 division and has great potential. 'He has real star quality. He works hard, can jump high, and has some special skills,' said Ricky Chung Ka-kei, a full-time coach with the Hong Kong Basketball Association. Kam-hing, 20, is already a key member of First Division side Fukien, and has impressed over the past few years. Last December he helped Ying Wa College win the coveted Jing Ying title. Kam-hing clinched the victory with a dramatic, last-second jump-shot. But he is struggling with a back injury which could rule him out of the competition. He said: 'I have not decided if I will play for Hong Kong due to my injury. But there are many outstanding young players in Hong Kong and we could beat any team.'
