Universality qualification tournament sounds fancy, but in the end it's just a quota for the likes of Italy or the Netherlands... Mongolians are absolutely chanceless if they don't make it through rankings.

The Men could give :ITA and :NED a good challenge. You’re forgetting about :UKR as well. :PUR also has a very strong men’s team currently.

Let's not forget about Mali of course. A few days ago I read here that Mali had a chance not only to qualify, but also to win a medal at the Olympics.

When there’s only 8 teams it only takes a few upsets. Though based off research I’d say the strongest team in Africa may be :UGA, but they just played many international tournaments. Africa is the weakest continent.

Mali is the two time defending African champions, though Nigeria did win at the African Games.

 

Regardless it is unlikely we'll see an African nation at the Olympics.

Especially after the good showing from universality eligible NOCs at the 2019 World Cup, 2019 European Games, and 2019 Pan American Games.

Italy have absolutely no chances among the men's. Our team is absolutely inconsistent.

Yeah consistency and 3x3 are words that are never said in the same sentence for most teams.

Don't worry about this, Italy will never qualify among the mens :p Our women's instead have some big changes, they are former world champions

Outside of the "miracles can happen" discussion, what do you guys think point 4 means here:

 

Spoiler

2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT)

 

The three (3) highest placed NOCs at the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament will each receive one (1) quota place to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

 

Twenty teams per gender are eligible to participate in the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament as per the following criteria:

 

1. The Host NOC of the OQT, if not yet qualified in the corresponding gender through the Federation Ranking List (see above);

2. The three (3) medallists of the 2019 FIBA 3x3 World Cup (if not yet qualified for the Olympics directly);

3. The 16 (or more, if Host NOC of the OQT and/or some of the 2019 FIBA 3x3 World Cup medallist teams are already qualified for the Olympics) highest ranked NOCs at the 3x3 Federation Ranking List of 1 November 2019 not yet qualified to the Olympic Games through the Federation Ranking List (including in any case the Host Country of the Olympic Games if not yet qualified);

4. Subject to the last 10 berths in each gender will be allocated following the Federation Ranking List only if the respective NOC has not already a team in any gender qualified;

5. Subject to a maximum of 10 teams per gender from the same Continent shall take part.

 

A)...only if the respective NOC has not already a team in any gender qualified to the Olympic Qualifying Tournament    or

B)...only if the respective NOC has not already a team in any gender qualified to the Olympics

 

Imo it's clear that they mean A) (like they do for the World Cup), do you agree?
