FIBA Asia 2015 Preview: Iran, India, Japan And Malaysia; Group A Preview

FIBA Asia 2015’s schedule is released now. Find out more about the FIBA Asia’s Group A teams, Iran, India, Japan and Malaysia.

FIBA Asia 2015 is coming this September 23-October 3 in Changsha-Hunan, and with the excitement comes the anxiety from each country as they root for their homeland teams. Let’s see the preview of Group and schedules of FIBA Asia below.

FIBA Asia GROUP A
India, Iran, Japan and Malaysia

Iran, the powerhouse and team that dominated the latest Jones Cup 2015 is in Group A. The reigning champions will await who the next contender will be as they still have with them Hamed Hadadi and Mahdi Kamrani, who, according to FIBA’s website, is looking into ousting Jayson Castro as Asia’s #1 point guard.

India
Losing Scott Flemming, who has since moved to the States, will make the future of this team uncertain. Another pain to India is losing two top performers, Amjyot Singh and Amrit Pal Singh, who are both playing in Japan. Is the future bleak for India?

Japan
They won’t have Kosuke Takeuchi and Yuta Watanabe in their roster this year, but they have shown great stability in some tune-up games in the Jones Cup 2015 and with the team from Czech Republic. No worries, according to FIBA’s report. Joji Takeuchi can steer the team’s direction well.

Malaysia
Unlike other contenders, Malaysia has been “quiet” in their preparations, but this team has caught the eyes of many when they placed next to the Philippines in the SEABA Tournament 2015. Are they the dark horse we’re looking for?
