 FIBA: Group B South Korea has an outlet and Scola may have a home advantage


Frequent injuries slowed down the pace of the Russian team, while Nigerias impressive performance in training camp seemed likely to be the second most powerful competitor in Group B, but that did not mean Argentina was safe, and South Korea also had a chance to get out.

The strongest in this group: Argentina

Argentina mens basketball team won the World Cup in 1950, and this time they came to China strongly. In the history of the World Cup, Argentina mens basketball team has been on the podium many times. Besides the 1950 championship, they also won the runner-up in 2002, and also won medals in the 2000 Olympic Games.

In this team, there are MVP Facundo Capazo, who plays in La Liga, as well as Scola, the favorite veteran of Argentine fans. In addition, Nicolas Brucino, Luca Victoria and Gabriel Dyke will play high-level games under the leadership of coach Sergio Hernandez.

Key duel: Argentina VS Russia

Argentina mens basketball team and Russian mens basketball team have a lot of origins in history. In fact, four of the five matches between the two teams in the World Cup and the Olympic Games ended up on the podium.

In Toronto in 1994, Russia defeated Argentina 84-64 and won the runner-up. In 2002, in Indianapolis, Argentina won the World Cup runner-up by 100-81. Argentina won the bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games by defeating Russia 91-79. In London 2012, Russia beat Argentina 81-77 to take home an Olympic bronze medal.

Therefore, will the battle between the two teams in the mens basketball World Cup group match be a repetition of history?

Star: Facundo Campazo (Argentina)

The Real Madrid point guard will play an important role in Argentina, both on and off the pitch. Kampazo started his career in Argentinas domestic league, won four domestic Championships and two Finals MVPs, and then went to Europe in 2014.

Dont neglect Kampazos ability to organize in series. He is expected to become the assists king in this Mens Basketball World Cup. It is expected that he will show many excellent performances on the court without looking at passes. The Argentine star turned 28 in March, the golden age of a player. For him, the best gift is to help the Argentine mens basketball team win a World Cup medal.

Potential players: Josh Okogi (Nigeria)

The 20-in-line rookie of the 2018 NBA Draft Conference will be the first in the national teams official competition. In Timberwolves, the young player is always waiting for his chance to perform. In fact, he has already played for the National Youth team. He participated in the U19 FIBA World Cup in 2017. The average time field contribution is 4.6 points and 4.6 rebounds.

On the second day of the World Cup, Okogi will celebrate his 21st birthday. He will face strong opponents like Argentina, South Korea and Russia, but that does not mean Nigeria has no chance at all. In fact, Okogi averaged 16.9 points per game in his two seasons at Georgia Tech, while he averaged 7.7 points per game in the Timberwolves rookie season. The World Cup will boost his confidence and provide Nigeria with the strength to fight. Historically, African teams have not done nothing in the World Cup. Egypt won the fifth place in the 1950 Mens Basketball World Cup, which will be the motivation for Okogi and his teammates.

Familiar with Faces: Louis Scola (Argentina)

Scola once again put on his national team gown, and there was no sign that the 39-year-old slowed down. The World Cup in China was also his fifth World Cup trip. In 2002, I made Scolas World Cup debut, when Argentina won the runner-up. Scola will be the glue for Argentinas many talented wingers and backcourt players. Five years ago, in the Spanish World Cup, Scola ranked fifth in the scoring list. Only Barea, Bojan-Bogdanovic, Blache and Paul Gasol scored more points than him. You know, he was already. A 34-year-old player still averaged 19.5 points per game. In addition, it is worth mentioning that Scola will also have home advantage in the mens basketball World Cup in China. He played for Shanxi in the 2017-18 season, and then he turned to Shanghai for a greater breakthrough. Source of this article: Netease Sports Author: Muzi Responsible Editor: Marbil_NS4800
