Shooting Into #32

Score of 25,149 from Basketball's Free-Throw Line Makes 32nd Malaysia Book of Record for Management and Science University (MSU)

A sense of cohesiveness and shared identity prevailed as MSUrians across all programmes of study rallied to get the number of shots up. And number 32 for Management and Science University (MSU) entered the Malaysia Book of Record (MBR) in a rousing display of talent, teamwork, and athleticism.

Scored on 25,149 shots from basketball’s free-throw line, the Malaysia Book of Record event was part of the Management and Science University (MSU) 60th Malaysia Independence Day celebration. One goal was to foster bonding with the larger community, so students from several national high schools (SMKs) were also invited to participate in a Three-on-Three Challenge and the Inter-School Free Throw. Another was to build endurance, shot by shot.

To have finished on over 25 thousand scores, despite the cardiovascular and muscular intensity of the sport a challenge to some at one point or another, is testimonial to tenacity. The MSU Free-Throw Challenge crowned MSUrians Muhammad Nazrin Khan Muharir Amir, Lim Ann Chie, and Jegan Sooriamoorty in first, second, and third place, respectively.

The national Merdeka celebration at Management and Science University (MSU) has never lacked for variety, yet through the years Sehati Sejiwa has steadfastly run a common thread. The togetherness is celebrated, laying the moral and ethical foundation crucial to cohesive, harmonious citizenship.

The Malaysia Book of Record (MBR) Event #32 was organized by the Management and Science University (MSU) Students and Career Development (SCD) Unit.
