South Korea in hot form in Asia Cup

South Korea are running into red hot form, and will be tough for the Boomers if they face them in the semi-finals or the grand final.. They blasted the Phillipines out of the Asia cup..

Well they are on different sides of the draw so we could only see them in the final

Umm no. What you just said is a fallacy.

South Korea have not faced anyone decent and I believe their team is their best one. Whereas in the Philippines the PBA is on right now so like nearly every other country they don't have their A team, and even if they did it's still poor.

Also running hot against PH may look good in isolation but remember PH is just another trash team in an overall trash confederation. Winner of a weak vs. weak matchup doesn't equal them being good.

Iran will make easy work out of Korea. Assuming Aus & NZ make it through tonight Iran got the weakest/juiciest team left in the draw.

Not going to get into the conversation of good teams/bad teams.

I will agree that Korea played a great game. Their high pick n roll offence just destroyed their opponents. Rarely do you see that offence run so ruthlessly as they constantly looked for the double space.

They were something like 16/21 from the 3 pt line (going from commentary).

Defensively they were solid by mixing it up with a bit of everything.

From a coaching perspective, it's worth having a look at this game.

South Korea beat the Tall Blacks(NZ B in reality) but still that's no mean feat. What you mean Phillipines didn't send there best team, why not? I thought there best players mostly play in Phills.

They shot 16/21 from 3!
Wont be able to repeat that, still thats a fair effort against a scrambling Gilas D.

$1.60 TAB for the Aussies is a steal.
