    Default 2023 World Cup Qualifying

    There was already a first round, but the second round starts this weekend with a group in El Salvador. These are broadcast on the FIBA YouTube channel. Day 1 results:

    Bahamas 89 Cuba 88
    Costa Rica 71 El Salvador 59

    Bahamas outscored Cuba 31-12 in the fourth for the comeback win, with Florida Gulf Coast's Franco Miller netting the winning basket. Jasiel Rivero had 35 points and 13 rebounds for Cuba.

    There will be a second group in a couple weeks with Chile, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Paraguay. It would be surprising if anyone new broke into the top 16.

    Stunner on the first day of the second group as Nicaragua takes a big step towards being the first new team to crack the top 16 since the new system started

    Nicaragua 76 Paraguay 73
    Chile 105 Bolivia 52

    Nicaragua's two top players are Norchad Omier, who was Sun Belt freshman of the year at Arkansas State, and naturalized Puerto Rican Jared Ruiz. They combined for 43 points and 23 rebounds. Nicaragua is now coached by former Panama coach David Rosario.

    Bolivia features Josh Reaves, who played a few games for the Mavs and is signed with Besiktas next year. His mother is Bolivian. He made his Bolivia debut in the previous round against Ecuador, quit the team because of the poor treatment given to the players, but apparently the issues were resolved.

    After the first day's excitement, we end up with the boring outcome of Chile and Paraguay advancing.

    Paraguay 77 Bolivia 49
    Chile 82 Nicaragua 63
