Early successes of the Academy’s male student basketball team are related to its successful performance in the city championship among universities, in which it won a silver medal. With each passing year, taking part in local and regional competitions the team was gaining experience in sports battles defending the honor of the Academy. In 2010-2011 our student team won the II place in the regional tournament among universities and in 2012 it confirmed the previous achievement receiving silver medals. In the season 2012-2013 the team defeated it main competitor - "the 9th Block" team, which for over 4 years had remained the region’s champion. For the spectacular performance during the championship our players were awarded a Cup and diploma of the I degree.
