FIBA U18 ASIA CHAMPS 2022 B + G

This tournament is in less than a months time and we still haven't heard anything.
Nz, China, Korea, Japan, India teams announced.

This tournament made up of 04/05 athletes, sometimes double bottom agers 06.
Could we possibly see Zikarsky(06) from the boys and Shiels from the girls(06) make it?


Some of the names that could make it?

Pretty disgraceful to force a Country to send under aged athletes to Iran. No matter the timing, fully support the stance of both BA and New Zealand.

Not when the venue could have been changed months ago via fiba approval.

You don't know what conversations have been going on behind the scenes. Not something they'd talk about publicly.

To assume BA just pulled this team last minute without ever raising concerns is not very likely.

They did pull out last minute, they even listed the final 15 players on fiba.

Australia's involvement in this tournament has been up in the air for a long time. Yes they ticked off all the FIBA administrative requirements but it was obvious from a long way out they were never attending.

If you know well in advance where the tournament will be held and it is deemed a security risk back then, the venue can be moved to a different location. Either poor admin by BA or they've done a deal which oceania teams auto qualify for next year.

The girls side should be fine given the tournament is in India on the 5th September.

FIBA control where the host venue is not Australia

Thankyou, I'm aware of that but requests for change of venue can be made if security is a factor. The Aus government has deemed Iran as a security risk for sometime, ba long ago could have suggested jordan which were the previous chosen hosts before it changed to iran. Given india qualified and Jordan did not they could have also held both mens n womens tournaments at the same time.
Will be interesting to see what BA say if and when a statement is made.

If you knew anything about the current climate the Asian countries do not want Australia nor New Zealand in the FIBA Asia zone so they are hardly going to accommodate any request for change of venue.

Yes I see on other forums that they are happy, obviously it increases the chances of them making top 4 and the WC.
Still don't know the back room deals that have been made by nz/Aus.
