Golden State Warriors point guard Nico Mannion handles the ball during a game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Jordan Bell wasn’t the only former Golden State Warriors player to show up in the FIBA ​​World Cup Qualifiers recently. As the big man showed off his versatile talents with USA Basketball, 20-year-old point guard Nico Mannion did his best Steph Curry impression for Italy.

On Feb. 24, the Warriors’ second-round pick and former two-way signing scored 23 points and knocked down 4 of 9 three-pointers while adding seven assists and three rebounds in a two-point road loss to the Iceland. .

Three days later, he had 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting while recording two interceptions in a revenge effort against the same team in Bologna.

Mannion and the Italians are now 2-2 in Group H of the European region. They will look to clinch their ticket to the second qualifying round in the next leg of matches in July, in which they are set to face Russia and the Netherlands.


Mannion sought playing time in Europe

Mannion’s opportunities with the Warriors were fleeting during his 2020-21 rookie campaign. However, on a 10-game streak near mid-season, he averaged 8.1 points, 3.3 assists, and 1.0 steals per game while knocking down 44.4% of his triples.

Rather than languish on an NBA bench or bounce between there and the G League this season, the former All-Pac 12 pick in Arizona opted for a payday and a better route to play in Italy with Virtus Bologna. . And he received encouragement from the Warriors to do so.

For his part, Draymond Green signed the movement.

“Go make money and go where you’re going to play,” Mannion said. Jason Dumas of KRON4 of Green’s message to him. “He said, ‘If it was me, I’d go where I’m going to get paid and I’d go where I’m going to play. He said, ‘You’re good enough to go out there and play and come back.'”

Alas, Mannion’s experience in Italy was not as expected.

Mannion’s Rough Go in the Italian league

Mannion’s big debut with Bologna was delayed when the player suffered a serious intestinal infection. As a result of the illness, he lost almost 20 pounds and had to spend time to the hospital.

Since recovering from his illness, Mannion has struggled to find his place in his new team. In 16 games in all competitions, the 6-foot-3 guard averaged 5.3 points, 3.0 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game. He also shoots just 37.1% from the floor and 28.1% from three.

Against Turkish club Bursaspor in the EuroCup on Thursday, he registered just two points and one assist.

Nonetheless, his performance in the World Cup qualifiers gives hope that he could go back to doing the things some believed he was. could be a draw in the 2020 draft. At least that’s a situation worth watching for Warriors fans.

Kyle Wiltjer scored 24 points as the Canadian men’s basketball team closed out their second FIBA ​​World Cup qualifying window, beating the US Virgin Islands 94-46 on Sunday to remain undefeated.

Wiltjer had six three-pointers in the win as Canada overall shot lights deep, scoring 15 of 33.

And defensively, Canada has been solid, holding the US Virgin Islands to 26.7% shooting from the ground while turning them over 19 times.

The Canadian led the Virgin Islands by no less than 51 in the contest.

“It was a big challenge for our team,” said Canadian coach Nate Bjokrgren. “We played a real physical game and played last night against the Dominican Republic. For the guys to turn around and play again today here at 3:00 against another fiery team, our guys have done such a good job approaching these two Games .

“Their approach to the first game and then obviously the game today, the approach they had, the relentlessness they had in the way they attacked, it’s really fun to watch this group play. It’s fun to watch them play defense and share the basketball.”

Canada crush US Virgin Islands in FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup Qualifiers

Kyle Wiltjer scored a game-high 24 points in Canada’s 94-46 win over the Dominican Republic. 1:36

Canada beat the Dominican Republic on Saturday, 85-79, in the first of this two-game qualifying window.

With the 48-point win over the Virgin Islands, Canada now has a plus-132 overall point differential in four qualifying games.

Rakeem Christmas, who once had a cup of coffee in the NBA, led all Virgin Islands scorers with 15 points.

The FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup will start on August 25, 2023, hosted by Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.

Waiting for next window

Reaching the FIBA ​​World Cup is an important first step towards reaching the Paris 2024 Games. A good part of Olympic qualification is directly linked to World Cup results.

Playing in the second of a six-window process, Canada are now 4-0 so far in their qualifying campaign and atop Group C in the Americas Qualifier as the only undefeated team in the group. .

“We are satisfied but we are looking to the future,” said Wiltjer. “We’ll take it one game at a time. I’ve been to the World Cup and it’s an amazing event. We want to get back there.

“Everyone is on deck trying to make it happen. And then at the end we also want to go to the Olympics. We have big goals as a program and now is the time to do it, so we we’re focused.”

Canada will then play in the third qualifying window on July 1-4, again against the Dominican Republic and the US Virgin Islands, at a location yet to be determined.

Given the timing of the third window, it is possible that some of the top Canadian talent in the NBA, who were not in attendance during this second window, may be available to play at this time.

After the conclusion of the third window, the fourth place team in each of the four Americas Region pools will be eliminated and the qualification process will then enter the second round where the top three teams from each of the pools will then be divided into of them. new groups.

In the case of Canada, if they made it out of the first round, they would enter a new group with the other top two from Group C and the top three from Group A, which includes Argentina, Panama, Paraguay and Venezuela. .

Of these two new groups, the first three of each of them and the best fourth between the two groups will qualify for the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup.

In order to determine the best fourth place, the overall record, including the first lap, will be taken into account. In addition, in the case of identical records, the point difference is an important determining factor in the tiebreakers.

The Canadian men’s basketball team hasn’t reached the Olympics since 2000.

“I think our guys did a great job with that.”

Canada shot the ball well, hitting 52.5% of their attempts from the field.

And although the Dominicans weren’t very good at shooting from the ground, they kept coming, reducing the lead to six on several occasions. It didn’t seem to have much of an impact on the Canadian veterans group.

“I just think we’ve got a good group of guys that have been together,” Kajami-Keane said. “If you look back, we’ve all played together in the national team for the last five or six years. So we kind of understand each other and understand how we can depend on each other.”

Canada’s roster in Santo Domingo didn’t include any of the NBA’s national stars, although it did have a few players who appeared briefly in the NBA, such as Wiltjer and Kyle Alexander.

Canadian guard Kenny Chery was a late scratch in health and safety protocols.

Canada improved to 3-0 in qualifying and remain first in Americas qualifying Group C.

The top three teams from each of the four groups advance to the next phase of qualifying.

The Canadian men’s basketball team hasn’t reached the Olympics since 2000.

Canada will next face the US Virgin Islands on Sunday as the second qualifying window comes to an end before the World Cup in 2023.

FIBA | MIAMI (February 26, 2022) – The FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup 2023 Americas Qualifiers continued on Friday with Groups A and B. Venezuela and Brazil remain undefeated and Panama and Chile entered the win column. Here’s how the day went:

Panama 81-59 Paraguay
Kicking off the action, Paraguay got off to a good start against Panama leading 19-13 after the first quarter with Edgar Riveros scoring six points while Fernando Dose himself added five. Panama shared more of their offensive load as Ernesto Oglive, who scored over 15 points in his two games for Panama in the 2023 World Cup qualifiers, was limited to just four points in the first quarter, leading all scorers.

Ogilvie had already scored 12 points at halftime on 71% shooting, while Trevor Gaskins, Eugenio Luzcando and Eric Romero James all scored six at halftime to help put Panama ahead. Jorge Rojas added eight points at half-time for Paraguay, but as the Panamanian defense limited Dose and Riveros to just two points each, the rest of the bench couldn’t follow to help Paraguay maintain their lead in half-time.

In the third quarter, Ogilvie had already scored another 15-point game, but it was Panama’s ball movement that kept them going offensively as Luzcando led the charge with six assists late in the quarter in addition to four. rebounds and three steals, being a utility player. for Panama on both sides of the ball to extend their lead to nine with a quarter to play. As Paraguay struggled to find a shooting rhythm on offense, Vincenzo Orchipinti controlled the rebounds with six rebounds – all defensive – to keep Paraguay in the game after failing to find the rim.

Although Paraguay managed to stay close for three quarters, Panama’s fourth quarter sealed their first victory in Group A by beating their opponents 26-13 in the final quarter with four players scoring 13 or more points like Ogilvie, Luzcando , Romero James and Trevor Gaskins. all contributed to the victory.



Brazil 85 – 66 Uruguay

Fourteen minutes. That’s exactly how long the Uruguayan defense managed to contain the home side’s attack, with Brazil (3-0 atop Group B) finishing the rest of the way en route to an 85-66 victory Friday night at Ginásio Pedroçao in Franca.

It also coincided with the torrid start of Luciano Parodi, as the Uruguayan point guard netted 10 of his 12 points in the first stanza and the visiting side pulled off a 14-14 draw at the end of the first quarter. . But from that moment on, it was complete domination by Gustavo Conti’s team. Their size advantage quickly turned into a big rebounding advantage, with Brazil finishing the game with a 43-27 lead on the boards – highlighted by a whopping 12 offensive rebounds.

Brazil’s attack was a picture of balance, with four different players scoring in double figures. Vitor Benite and Leonardo Meindl led the way with 13 each, while Yago Santos and Lucas Dias added 11 each. Santos also provided seven assists, while Bruno Caboclo and Augusto Lima had seven rebounds.

This wealth and the magnitude of the contributions allowed Brazil to steadily increase its lead, which reached a dozen points at the end of the third quarter and up to 20 at the end of the fourth. The home defense took care of the rest, holding Rubén Magnano’s side (now 2-1) to 41.1% from the field and just 11 assists from 23 baskets completed. Parodi ended up being Uruguay’s only double-digit goalscorer in a game where they also shot a measly 11 of 17 from the free-throw line.

Argentina 58 – 71 Venezuela
Although Nestor García is now coaching on the opposite bench, Venezuela (3-0 in Group A) traveled to Buenos Aires and proved they were the real deal, completing a nearly flawless performance to upset the Argentina, 71-58, Friday night at Obras. Sanitary.

Coached by Fernando Duró, the vinotinto side quickly took the lead midway through the first quarter and never looked back despite multiple attempts by the home side to get back into the game. Their ball movement, athleticism and inside scoring proved enough against a team with several former NBA players – much to the delight of the road crowd, a small but boisterous congregation.

With Garly Sojo’s outside shot (11 points 3/5 from downtown) providing good spacing, Nestor Colmenares shredded the Argentine defense to the tune of 17 points and eight rebounds. Michael Carrera fell just before a double-double with 11 points and nine boards, while Pedro Chourio and David Cubillán provided timely buckets to protect the lead.

Argentina (2-1 after suffering their first loss) were never out of the game but never seemed to get close enough, their icy cold shot from the free-throw line (15 of 30) becoming the main culprit. Venezuela committed 30 team fouls, but García’s side failed to capitalize on a night where they also couldn’t conjure up their magic from beyond the arc ( 5/23 on three points). Nicolás Brussino led the way with 16 points, but star goalkeepers Carlos Delfino and Luca Vildoza (who shot a total of 6 of 18 from the field) failed to have inspired performances and veteran great Marcos Delía (9 points and six rebounds) couldn’t. absolutely impose itself in the painting.

Chile 90-76 Colombia
With both teams also in a position to secure their first group win in strong competition, Chile’s quick attack to start the first quarter proved to be the game-changer for the match as Colombia were unable to close the gap as they fell to Chile 90. -76 and fell to 0-3 in Group B as Chile picked up their first victory.

Ignacio Arroyo and Sebastian Herrera led Chile’s attacking charge while Colombia couldn’t find an attacking rhythm in the first quarter with just two players scoring four points leading the team. At halftime, Colombia only scored 12 points in the second quarter while Arroyo had already scored 11 points at halftime for Chile.

Romario Roque scored 11 points for Colombia in the third quarter, but Chile had three double-digit scorers late in the third, leading by 10 points in the final 10 minutes with Arroyo, Herrera and Franco Morales all on 10 or more. Tonny Trocha and Soren de Luque controlled the boards for Colombia, but unable to stop the force of the Chilean offensive, it was too much to handle.

In the end, Chile had the advantage in their scoring power despite being overtaken by Colombia and unable to find an answer for Roque, but having five scorers with over 10 points was the closest as Marcelo Perez added another 10 points. De Luque, Trocha and Pablo Gardner all scored more than 10 points each for Colombia, but no other player scored more than six points.

USVI men face important matches in FIBA ​​World Cup qualifiers | Sports https://eight-fut.com/usvi-men-face-important-matches-in-fiba-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bworld-cup-qualifiers-sports/ Sat, 26 Feb 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://eight-fut.com/usvi-men-face-important-matches-in-fiba-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bworld-cup-qualifiers-sports/ Donald Bough is well aware of the importance of this weekend’s games for the US Virgin Islands men’s national basketball team as they attempt to qualify for the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup in next year.

Donald Bough is well aware of the importance of this weekend’s games for the US Virgin Islands men’s national basketball team as they attempt to qualify for the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup in next year.

A victory in one of the two games for the USVI national team in the group matches of the first round of the Qualifiers for the Americas this weekend in the Dominican Republic could go a long way towards achieving this goal.

“We have to score [a win] in one of them, and we would be in a good position in a way,” Bough – the head coach of the US Virgin Islands – said in a telephone interview on Thursday.

The USVI National Team – No. 54 in the latest FIBA ​​World Rankings and 0-2 in Americas Qualifying Group C – today faces No. 62 Bahamas (0-2) and then faces the Canada, 18th in the standings (2-0) on Sunday.

Both matches will be played at the Palacio de los Deportes in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Game time for both is 3 p.m. Atlantic.

The USVI national team are already in a hole in group play, having lost their first two games – both to 20th-seeded Dominican Republic by scores of 87-65 on November 28 and 100- 56 on November 29.

Those losses put the US Virgin Islands in a hole heading into this weekend’s second window of group games, but a win in either game this weekend would give USVI an edge going into the final games. group in early July.

The top three teams from each of the four groups in the Americas Qualifiers advance to the second round, with matches scheduled for August and November 2022, and February 2023. The top seven will then qualify for the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup, scheduled for August 25. -Seven. 10, 2023, in the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia.

That’s why Bough and his players are most focused on the Bahamas, where the USVI national team is 2-0 in life – both victories coming in the Basketball World Cup qualifiers. -ball FIBA ​​2019.

“It’s the team we’re looking for the most,” Bough said. “Ironically they are in a similar situation to us – we both come from small islands with few people, and we both come straight here to train and prepare.”

USVI easily beat Bahamas in their previous two group matches – 93-85 on Nov 27, 2017 and 84-74 on June 28, 2018. If they can do it again (rematch would be July 1) , that would give the US Virgin Islands who needed a third-place finish in group play to qualify.

However, the US Virgin Islands will be missing two key players for this weekend’s matches.

Bough said USVI’s two starting guards – international veterans Walter Hodge and Georgio Milligan – will not be available due to visa and travel issues.

The 6-foot Hodge is currently in Kuwait, playing for Al Kuwait in the Kuwaiti Basketball Division I League, while the 6-3 Milligan plays for Sport Club Corinthians of Novo Basquete Brasil in Brazil.

Likely to take their place are 5-11 Max Amaro, who plays for Cariduros de Fajardo from Puerto Rico’s Baloncesto Superior Nacional, and 6-4 Kyle Clarke, who played varsity ball at Kennesaw State.

That will put the scoring load on the USVI national team’s strength — its interior game, according to Bough.

The U.S. Virgin Islands have five players on their 6-7 or better roster, led by 6-9 center Rakeem Christmas, a third-team AP All-American at Syracuse who spent two seasons with the NBA’s Indiana Pacers; 6-9 center LaRon Smith, who now plays for CB Sant Antoni of the Spanish league LEB Silver; and 6-7 striker Ivan Aska, now with Hungarian Nemzeti Bajniksag I/A’s DEAC.

Aska was USVI’s top scorer (12 points per game) in their first two group games, Noël – now playing professional ball with Taiwan Super Basketball League’s Yulon Luxgen Dinos – averaging 11 points and 6.5 rebounds.

“I have a certain height, but hopefully the guard game can step up a bit,” Bough said. “We hope that with what we have here, we have a big team. … But we feel like we can take on anyone. We feel confident. We will be ready to play and we believe we can win.
