三屋 裕子  

“I was informed that FIBA Secretary General Mr. Patrick Baumann has passed away. I am very shocked and deeply saddened to hear such unexpected news. On behalf of Japan Basketball, I would like to send our heartfelt condolences to his wife and his children.
Needless to say, Mr. Baumann has shown great success in international basketball, but he showed great understanding towards Japan Basketball and he was our greatest benefactor.
He has warmly taught us the way of organization and governance during the time that Japan basketball was facing problems such as governance, development of national teams and integration of men’s league. It has become the cornerstone of restructuring the sports society in Japan and we will never forget what he has taught us.
Japan Basketball family appreciate all his thoughtfulness and we would keep moving forward with his desire and memory in our heart.
May his soul rest in peace.”
