    Iranian officials just confirmed that Tehran will host all home games here. which is a bit disappointing because in Tehran this is always possible to play in semi-empty stadiums !

    I noticed our first game will be Iraq away. I wonder where Iraq will host the game ? inside Iraq ?

    I've heard that the Iraqi federation are working to play at home but they must take into consideration a lot of things.
    Plenty of members from Fiba Asia and Hagop went to Iraq few months ago but I don't know if the Iraqi federation worked on this issue.

    Looks like Iraq will play in Jordan and Syria will play in Lebanon.

    The Tall Blacks lineup that will be hosting Korea in Wellington is simply a lot stronger than the one in the FIBA Asia Cup. Good for the Kiwis in mustering that kind of roster for the qualifiers.

    HT: KOR leads NZL 41-39. That 3-2 zone allows Korea to even up the rebounding department over a physically stronger Kiwi side. While Tall Blacks are getting the lift from the Webster brothers but a number of sloppy sequence allowed Korea some quick hitters.

    End of 3Q: KOR leads NZL 60-59. Kiwis ramping up the back-court pressure as they erased Korea's previous 9pt lead.

    What an upset by Korea, 86-80. Gritty plays for both teams in the closing minutes. Jeon Jun-Beom's shooting lifted Korea.

    First day, first upset, though then again Korea beat them in the Asia Cup too.

    well, I was expecting a tough games vs Iraq but still this was beyond imagination. the worst game I ever seen from TM without any doubt . they got humiliated by Iraq ! and it's not like Iraq had a dream game (yeah they played great only in the 4th quarter)

    I don't know who to blame, Haddadi, Mashoun, Hatami, Aslani ? the coaching was disastrous , the player selection , they went to Jordan with Riaei and Arghavan as center !! yeah they missed Haddadi and Yakhchali and the new guy Geramipour but they still had the core team !

    and I wonder why the hell Haddadi came all the way from to China to play only one game ?! we knew home game vs Qatar is much easier than Iraq away. he was just lazy to travel to Jordan with the team. I'm not sure if we even can qualify for the world cup with this coach and some of these players. some players are only good for the club level, playing for the NT is something else.

    last but not least, Mahmoud Mashhoun resigned as IRIBF president today, after 14 years. (he had to leave his position because of his age and per some new rules in Iran) but he did that today, right before the game and I'm quite sure that was very important for the players and the coach. I consider this as betrayal, he knew he has to leave but he did that today to hurt the team.

    Sun Minghui who averages 2.9ppg in CBA is straight up destroying South Korean guards. 19 points in 15 min in 1st half. Dude is gunning for that 2019 NT spot.

    Problem is this Chinese team has virtually no inside presence especially on defense

    Pretty clear, even just two games in, Hong Kong is the overmatched team in Group A. Right now it's about positioning for the 2nd round.

    Not simply relying on big men for a change might actually help China....

    BTW can anyone explain how qualification works with China given they're already qualified for 2019? If China makes the second round (pretty much a sure thing) will the next best team aside from China make it to the World Cup?

    they will go the 2nd round but if China makes it to top 4 of the 2nd round group. both 4th placers from both groups will qualify for the World Cup.

    Iran is in big trouble and I'm not sure even against Qatar, Haddadi left Iran without even noticing the coach and will not play tomorrow. apparently they expelled Hassanzadeh from the camp. Yakhchali won't be ready and we will have more or less the same roster for the Qatar game. as I said before Mashhoun's resignation created so much problems inside the team. apparently there will be chaos for a while when a dictator goes out. some players love him, some players hate him.

    some "experts" made joke of our Iraq roster, something like out of 12 players we had 8 players for one position (Power forward) and only 4 for other 4 positions ! this is a bit of exaggeration but more or less the truth. they tried to make it better by adding Mirzaei and Rezaeifar for qatar game but still the team is loaded with power forwards !

    watching the Asian qualifiers, stadiums are almost packed everywhere, quite sure we will play in an almost empty stadium tomorrow. (I hope I'm wrong though)
