KBL Playoffs 2013 was adjusted to an earlier date to make way for this qualification tourney. It looks like Seoul SK Knights and Ulsan Mobis Phoebus are on a collision course for the championships. National team players from SK are Kim Sun-Hyung & Kim Min-Soo while the likes of Yang Dong-Geun and Ham Ji-Hoon are from Ulsan.

Barring any upset in the first round of the KBL playoffs, the players mentioned will only have a few days rest as the player pool and training camp could start a week after the 2013 KBL Finals. So that leaves South Korea with a compact three week preparation for this tourney.

04-16-2013, 06:02 AM
Tourney venue will be in Incheon, where the KBL team, Incheon ET Land Elephants play.

China's Olympic squad will meet challenges only after the group stage. South Korea, Japan and Chinese Taipei have a lot of young players in their fold and that is where the showcase becomes interesting.

5/16 Japan vs. South Korea

This is a very interesting match-up. South Korea is banking on the size of their upcoming amateurs in Lee Jong-Hyun, Kim Jong-Kyu, Lee Seung-Hyun and Kim Jun-Il as Korea's young bigmen so far are much better than what Japan has currently. But Japan has talented youth in the wings with Tanaka, Watanabe and Hiejima. I can see only Kim Min-Koo being able to play on par with the said names.

Gone are the days when Korea's Ha Seung-Jin and Kim Joo-Sung would battle Takeuchi and Aono. The first test this year for Lee Jong-Hyun and Kim Jong-Kyu lies in Japan's two bigmen as mentioned. Hashimoto and Nagayoshi suited up last year for Japan in the KOR-JAP basketball exchange games, but was badly beaten by the likes of Kim Jun-Il, Kim Jong-Kyu and Jang Jae-Seok.

South Korea's perimeter is susceptible for the first time against Japan's wings as never had Japan had this athletic guard and forwards that continuously dribble drives. Surprisingly, despite Korea being a tall team, they are banking on speed, unlike Japan who is trying to operate a patient half-court game. Aono will be a liability as this Korean team runs and guns. Which is why Park Chan-Hee, Lee Jung-Hyun and Hur Il-Young are there for perimeter defense.

Anyone, who understands chinese, can maybe give us the rosters for HONG KONG and MACAU?

I`ve tried to find sth, but it`s nearly impossible for me

SBS ESPN (http://sbsespn.sbs.co.kr/index.jsp) will broadcast this one on local channels and on Satellite TV. If you have an account in the KBL (http://www.kbl.or.kr/main/main.asp), the portals for Ulsan Mobis Phoebus, Busan Sonicboom KT and Incheon ET Land Elephants will offer a live stream.

South Korea head coach Cho Bo-Young was interviewed this morning in SBS and offered some views about China's team. Cho said that the Chinese are young but with potential and singled out Wang Zhelin as the next big star of China. Cho also added that he may field both Kim Jong-Kyu and Lee Jong-Hyun if China fields Wang Zhelin and Li Muhao at the same time.


Media in South Korea loves to sensationalize a potential Lee Jong-Hyun and Wang Zhelin match-up and often compared them to the Seo Jang-Hoon and Yao Ming era. I feel that they are putting too much pressure on Lee JH by touting him as the next big thing despite the federation's plans of young players growing together to form the core of national teams.

05-15-2013, 01:59 AM
live stream

and head coach is "Choi" Boo-Young

05-15-2013, 02:42 AM
Chinese rotation depth:

C - Wang Zhelin / Li Muhao
PF - Chang Lin, Zhong Cheng, Sun Tonglin
SF - Li Jingyu, Ding Yanyuhang, Zhai Xiaochuan
SG - Meng Duo, Zhao Tailong, Duan Jiangpeng
PG - Guo Ailun

I was hoping that Li Xiaoxu would have been included for this one. It would be interesting to see who will back-up Guo Ailun if the latter is benched for rest, Liu Xiaoyu would have been adequate.

05-15-2013, 04:45 AM
Head coach Kimikazu Suzuki said in a statement to the clutchtimes blog that he is well aware of Fumihiko Aono's health and will manage his minutes carefully. This means that the trio of Takeuchi, Hashimoto and Nagayoshi will play extended minutes alongside a wingman who will be playing some minutes at PF. All indication is Yuta Watanabe, who played some bigman role in the training camp scrimmage despite the latter's lighter frame.

05-16-2013, 09:57 AM
South Korea runs past Japan as Park Chan-Hee could not be contained by Ryota Sakurai. Japan went into a compact zone as Kimikazu Suzuki thought that Korea will pound it in the paint a lot with their towering youngsters, but instead, Korea opted for quick hitting sets that opened up half the weak side of the defense, allowing for a barrage of three pointers. Kim Jong-Kyu, Lee Jong-Hyun and Lee Seung-Hyun stepped out of the zone to hit jumpers instead.

Suzuki got a taste of his own reverse ball offense. South Korea's size and surprising wing coverage and convergence limited the Japanese incursions with their wings as Kosuke Takeuchi found himself double teamed and the defense constantly switching from ball denial towards front-up pins. Fumihiko Aono played very limited.

05-16-2013, 01:49 PM
I like what Chinese Taipei has brought in this tournament, a quick fast-break team with a pressure offense for tempo upheaval. Tomorrow, they will face the host Korea who used a high pressure ball screen to stagnate Japan's baseline screens in the first half. Despite Korea's man to man pressure defense in the game, they are still susceptible in their transition defense where the Japanese in the second half managed to score more points as their wings was more aggressive in the sideline and break.T hat is where Chinese Taipei can capitalize.

05-16-2013, 02:16 PM
Wang Zhelin in 23 minutes: 17 points, 7 rebounds. Still, China needs to play with more urgency. They were too relax against Hong Kong while the latter showed some heart to keep the game close before China spared a bit of effort in the 4th to close the game. China would have cruised in Day 1 had they been serious in the first.

05-17-2013, 07:16 AM
Chinese Taipei had a great start as their speed and aggression in attacking the wings and pushing the tempo allowed them the lead for the first quarter. Korea adjusted with a 1-3-1 buffer zone in the second and it worked as Chinese Taipei slowed down considerably. The veterans like Heo Il-Young and Yoon Ho-Young stabilized the shaky offense in the second.

Both teams were pretty much equal in the third but Chinese Taipei stopped being aggressive due to Korea's man to man pressure. Chinese Taipei got 8 points in Tsai Wen Cheng in the third. Fourth quarter saw Korea being lead by Lee Jong-Hyun and Lee Seung-Hyun as they scored 10 of Korea's 22 points in the fourth. Koreans capitalized on height advantage in the final quarter.

It was a good game but Chinese Taipei struggled in shooting in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. While Korea was not on target with their three point shooting.

05-17-2013, 07:46 AM
Good to see Yuta Watanabe getting to start against Macau. I had a feeling Kimikazu Suzuki will rest some of the players that played yesterday. This serves as a confidence booster for Watanabe as the tourney proceeds.


05-17-2013, 07:48 AM
Matsui, Tanaka, Hiejima, Hashimoto and Watanabe getting a much needed dry run. Japan leads 53-27 2nd quarter.

05-18-2013, 02:55 AM
Japan vs. Chinese Taipei later on. While Choi Bo-Young aims to rest his main players as they tackle Macau later. Maybe we'll see Kim Jun-Il and others subs with a lot of minutes.

05-18-2013, 07:21 AM
Good game between Chinese Taipei and Japan. 4th quarter could have gone either way but veterans like Kosuke Takeuchi and Ryota Sakurai had key baskets as well as Kosuke Kanamaru hitting shots down the stretch. Chang Tsung-Hsien aka Jet played aggressive and finished with 21 points. Japan wins 71-70.

05-18-2013, 09:12 AM
Korea wins Group A by trouncing Macau 124-39 and the hosts are 3-0 entering into knockout mode.

For this game, Heo Il-Young poured in 29 points. Heo scored 15 points in the 2nd quarter. Park Jae-Hyun did a great job in directing the team: finished with 12 points and 10 assists. Kim Jong-Kyu with 20 points, dominated in the first quarter by scoring 14.

And Chinese Taipei wins the last spot to Manila after defeating Mongolia 94-86. I hope the taiwanese fisherman's death issue doesn't affect the basketball team. :(

all is cool from Manila's stand point..90 percent of Filipinos don't care about the politics that Taiwan President is playing. wishing that chinese taipei join the fiba asia in Manila..

05-20-2013, 09:40 AM
And Chinese Taipei wins the last spot to Manila after defeating Mongolia 94-86. I hope the taiwanese fisherman's death issue doesn't affect the basketball team. :(

Chinese Taipei played ok and just enough to win. Tseng Wen-Ting did not even attempt a shot and was more interested in getting the defensive rebound and putting on a stockade in the paint. Second quarter saw Taipei bringing in some bench-players while maintaining Tsang Hsun-Chien's hot streak from the first quarter. They owned the second quarter.

Third quarter Chinese Taipei was just coasting. In the fourth, Mongolia' Sanchir scored 17 points and made the game look respectable.

05-20-2013, 09:49 AM
Korea scored 32 points in the first quarter against Hong Kong. Anyang KGC's exciting back-court of Park Chan-Hee <3 and Lee Jung-Hyun were unstoppable and Choi Bo-Young fielded the twin towers in Kim Jong-Kyu and Lee Jong-Hyun. Kim scored 20 points in 20 minutes of action while Lee Jong-Hyun managed 8 points and 2 blocks in 15 minutes of action for the game.

Second quarter, it was Park Jae-Hyun's turn to spitfire, scored 13 of his 15 points in the second quarter. Third quarter saw Lee Seung-Hyun making hard work look easy. In the fourth, Kim Jong-Kyu scored 14 points to close out the game.

It seems that Choi Bo-Young was fine tuning the defense in the first half while he ran some flex roll sets in the second half. He must be expecting China to win against Japan or Japan showing up their A game in the knockout stages.

05-20-2013, 09:56 AM
2nd half: China leads Japan 40-24.

05-20-2013, 10:12 AM
Japan showed some life in the 3rd as desperation somehow converted into more points. End of 3rd China leads 53-40.

05-20-2013, 11:16 AM
China wins and they will meet South Korea for the championship. China got a comfortable lead and managed that way. Played basketball just to fend off any Japanese comeback. Kosuke Takeuchi got a double double of 12 points and 11 rebounds. Kosuke Kanamaru finished with 18 points. Both Kanamaru and Takahiro Kurihara tried to make a comeback in the 4th but China dictated the tempo.

These youngsters learned from their 2012 Asian cup defeat from Japan. Guo Ailun was unstoppable, scoring 28 points. 10 of those in the fourth quarter. Not just scoring, Guo had a well rounded game of 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. Wang Zhelin in 25 minutes had a nifty double double of 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Congrats to Korea "B" for winning the tourney. Wang Zhelin has a long way to go. No NBA chance if you keep getting blocked by Korean college players, goddamn.

C - Wang Zhelin / Li Muhao
PF - Chang Lin, Zhong Cheng, Sun Tonglin
SF - Li Jingyu, Ding Yanyuhang, Zhai Xiaochuan
SG - Meng Duo, Zhao Tailong, Duan Jiangpeng
PG - Guo Ailun
Basketball 101 Lesson: never go to any tourney with only 1 guy who can dribble the ball, ever.

Anyway, as noted last year during the Olympic Qualifier, Korea's big guy Lee Jong-Hyun is going to be a dominant player in Asia.

05-21-2013, 09:38 AM
Congratulations to South Korea. Choi Bo-Young has done a great job in assembling a well disciplined team given the time constraints. He meshed together upcoming college stars and KBL players under the military sports team.

05-21-2013, 10:03 AM
Japan's win against Hong Kong was one of their better games as Kosuke Takeuchi finished with a double double of 22 points & 15 rebounds. Kosuke Kanamaru finished with a personal best 28 points, including 5 treys. Hong Kong played with heart and did not lose by such a huge margin unlike their previous outings. Whereas it took superb games from Japan's best bigman and best wingman just to fend them off.

Respect to Hong Kong. Lo Yi Ting with 31 points.

05-21-2013, 06:03 PM

Park Chan Hee is using the glass when shooting free throws?

We all knew Yang Dong Geun is the heart and soul Korea NT but Park Chan Hee has been solid in this tournament and a good model for point guards out there on how he plays.."madaming matututunan"
