Turkey and Senegal will collide in Day 3 of the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in the Philippines. The Turkey-Senegal will determine who will move on to the knockout stage of the 2016 FIBA OQT Manila leg.


Can Turkey find their rhythm in the knockout match?

Turkey wants to bounce back from a disappointing debut in the tournament, where they are considered as one the dark horses. The eighth-ranked team in the world struggled to get into their rhythm in their first assignment, taking a tough 77-69 loss to Canada, who were also not at their best on Tuesday.

The European powerhouse shot just 36.1 percent from the field, including a measly 6-for-26 shooting from beyond the arc. Turkey also missed 15 of their 34 free-throw attempts, which proved to be too costly for the 12 Giant Men.

Sinan Guler led Turkey with 14 points, while Cedi Osman added 10 points and five boards. However, naturalized point guard Ali Muhammed was a big disappointment, as he only finished with one point, missing all of his eight shot attempts, including six from beyond the arc.

Can Senegal silence their critics?

Meanwhile, Senegal will look to silence their doubters in the tournament in their crucial match against the Turks. Senegal showed how dangerous they can be after almost pulling off an upset against Canada before taking a 55-58 defeat on Wednesday.

Maurice Ndour was a force for the African country, as he finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds to go along with five blocks and two assists. Clevin Hannah also had a productive night with 13 points on top of four assists and three rebounds, while Maleye Ndoye and Cheikh Mbodj added six points apiece.

Hannah had a chance to force overtime but failed to convert a three-pointer before the buzzer sounded. But by pushing the favored Canadian to the limit, Senegal might pull off a shocker against Turkey.

The Turkey vs. Senegal match will start at 6:30 a.m. ET. It will be shown live on Live Basketball TV, while highlights and replay will be available on FIBA and Sports5 YouTube channels.

The winner of the match will advance to the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament semis and will go up against either France or New Zealand. France and New Zealand will also collide on Thursday.
