The first round of the men’s basketball Asian Cup is over. In the first round, the traditional Asian teams such as Australia, Japan and Iran all won and got off to a good start. The Chinese team lost to the South Korean team in their debut, and the situation for the first place in the group is very unfavorable. Next, let’s analyze the promotion situation of the men’s basketball Asian Cup top 16.
Group A: There is no suspense for Australia to win the first place
On the first match day, Australia and host Indonesia both got off to a good start, while Jordan and Saudi Arabia lost their first match. From the point of view of group strength, after defeating Jordan, there is no suspense for Australia to get the first place in the group. After losing the first game to Indonesia, Saudi Arabia basically missed the quarterfinals, and the remaining two opponents, Australia and Jordan, would not give them any chance at all. So this group is the least suspenseful.
Group B: Chinese team or missed group first
After losing the first game to South Korea, it was very unfavorable for the Chinese team to compete for the first place in the group. The South Korean team has a high probability of winning the first place in the group and going straight to the quarter-finals. In fact, it is not a big problem for the Chinese team to advance to the top eight. In the remaining two games, they only need to win one game, and they will basically be able to participate in the top eight play-offs.
Group C: Japan and Iran contend for the boss
In the first round, Japan and Iran both won their first victories, while Kazakhstan and Syria faced a black hole. In terms of group strength, the latter two teams are actually fighting for the third place. Who can directly advance to the quarter-finals between the Japanese team and the Iranian team will have to wait until the last game of the two sides before they can compete for the first place in the group.
Group D: The top 3 contend for India’s unfortunate success
There is no doubt that Group D is the most interesting and most suspenseful game in the group stage. New Zealand, the Philippines and Lebanon all have the strength to compete for the first place in the group. In the first round, New Zealand beat India by 53 points, and Lebanon beat the Philippines. However, from the current point of view, it is really hard to say who can win the first place in the group. It is the Indian team, they are basically out early.Return to Sohu, see more
