After two successive setbacks in the Asian championships, China regained the golden scepter in basketball in this year’s edition of Asian Games. In 2007 FIBA – Asia Championship, Iran captured the title in Tokushima, Japan after trouncing Lebanon in the finals. The Chinese, who sent their B team, wound up 10th. Two years later, the latter bowed to the Iranians in an unexpected blowout.  It was their best team which represented the tourney minus Yao Ming.

This year at the Asian Games held in Guangzhou, China held tight to edge out the hard fighting South Koreans to regain the Asian crown.
