Basketball Qualification for Summer Olympic Games 2016

Recommended Posts

Other dropouts from Canada team include Olynik, Stauskas, Nicholson, Lyles, Powell etc.

 

Cory Joseph will play and it's still unknown for Tristan Thompson, his season with the Cavs isn't finished yet. But at this moment I would make a bet he wouldn't play as well. So, after all it seems from the death tournament it was expected at Manilla, we will see much interesting things in Turin.

Russell Westbrook is also out for USA.

 

In Serbia late breaking news tonight is Bjelica is injured as well and probably will miss OQT, he is at the Wolves facilities now working on a rehab.

 

Too many withdrawals :facepalm:With this many, football tournament could be better and it's u23. Unfortunately it seems that basketball is going in the same direction at Olympics.

All four European teams + China will qualify from this tournament, anything else would be a complete upset.

China will be the favourite to take the last spot, but I wouldn't call them a lock. Cuba has a decent team and Nigeria has looked decent in its first two matches too.

What about Argentina then ? From the little I've seen, they looked like a decent team also.

 

By the way, Cuba's first half yesterday night was awful.

Yup, Argentina has a good chance for an upset too. Cuba's second quarter was pretty bad. I want to say Cuba was just saving its energy since it was always going to lose to France, but it was just France outworking them.

Well, looks like someone could stop China. Spain destroyed them today, with 77 - 43 win.

I wouldn’t call for the end of China just yet. They are the type of team that would essentially throw a game knowing they don’t have a chance here and focus on the quarter-final/winning the 5th place match.
