FIBA Asia – Japan loses!!!

1 08 2007

Absolute HAWTNESS cheerleaders…Fairly huge news in Asian basketball, Kazakhstan has downed the hosts Japan. Japan were (still are?) one of the favourites for the tournament, in which Olympic berths are the prize. With a 93-85 scoreline, the game could’ve gone either way… but Anton Ponomarev, Rustam Yargaliyew and Yevgeniy Issakov were all up to the task of keeping Nippon at bay.

In other games on Day 4 (worth noting, none of the absolute thrashings we’ve seen on other days):

  • Philippines defeated Syria in a high-scoring affair 107-100
  • China beat Hong Kong 93-69
  • Kuwait just got past India 72-68
  • UAE fell just short of beating Indonesia, losing 81-83
  • Iran beat Chinese Taipei 76-64
  • South Korea beat Jordan 70-65
  • Lebanon defeated Qatar 90-68
