Among these young talents, Telfordshire, a point guard at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, NCAA, was the most prominent. He averaged 8.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 7.7 assists in his first season. Ando Odao and Ando Zhou are from the Japanese B League. Hamamotos new work is now at the University of New Mexico in Istanbul, USA, and Tanaka is currently at IMG College in USA. Other young players come from universities in Japan.
According to the schedule of the Japan Basketball Association, the first training camp for these players will be held from 13 to 23 this month, and the preparation for the 2019 Mens Basketball World Cup will begin. The Japanese team is in Group E with the United States, Turkey and Czech Republic. Whatever their performance, it will not affect the Japanese mens basketball team to participate in the 2020 Olympic Games as the host, which also determines that they can use a large number of young players for training.
