actually that's more . the loser receives 1 point in FIBA tournaments. with losing by forfeit you receive 0. so even losing 120-29 (the way India lost to Japan) is better than losing 20-0.

 

 

I highly doubt you didn't know that yourself :d

 

I do, but I forgot about it when writing the above message :p

I just don't get why women's basketball no longer has continental places. I mean, what the hell?

 

Africa is very much unjustly robbed of their place.

 

Not sure about that, I think the 2 African teams will be placed in the same group at the OQT to ensure that one of them will qualify.

Africa is very much unjustly robbed of their place. Since 1996 we have seen :COD:SEN:NGR:MLI:ANG all taking part in women's tournament. It's pretty much the only team event where Africa doesn't send the same team over and over again...

 

not only...they did show at the last world cup that the best African teams are not so poor...now we have at least NGR and SEN who are even better than some European and Panamerican team (SEN beat LAT + NGR beat ARG, TUR and GRE last year...and even when they lost, they did it by a reasonable margin -except for NGR being thrashed by the USA in the quarterfinals)...

 

there are sports granting very weak teams places because of Home and/or Continental representation...and where they are technically entitled to have something safe, they don't get it...:facepalm::wall:

Wait, so can someone please explain to me why the US and Japan are playing in the qualification tournaments? This makes absolutely no sense to me
