"Chinese Taipei have delayed the start of their national league competition so they're national team have been together for a couple of weeks now, practicing and I’m sure playing some games," Lemanis said.
“Here we are we get together for three games and our first game is a game of consequence, it really counts.”
There has been speculation about who was not selected in the team, but this fact makes it clear why Lemanis has chosen nine of the winning FIBA Asia Cup team.
“That was 100 per cent the thinking going into the Asia Cup,” he said.
“Understanding that we would have very limited preparation, it meant our preparation was the Asia Cup, that’s why it was important we got that group together.”
