I’d like to keep abreast of how the Asian teams fare in the ongoing FIBA-World Championship in Turkey. Four out of twenty four entries come from Asia namely Iran, China, Jordan and Lebanon. The performances of the Asian teams in this competition are crucial to their request to add one more slot for Asia in the 12-team 2012 London Olympics.

On the first day of the tournament, Jordan, China and Iran ended up losing their opening matches against Australia, Greece and Brazil respectively. Jordan was narrowly defeated by Australia,75-76; China bowed to medal contender Greece, 81-89; Iran was crushed by highly fancied Brazil 65-81. Lebanon saved the day for the Asians as it upset 2009 FIBA-Americas  4th placer Canada, 81-71.
