2013 FIBA Asia Championship

The 2013 FIBA Asia Championship for Men was the intercontinental championship for basketball organized by FIBA Asia that served as the qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain. The tournament was held from August 1–11 in Metro Manila, Philippines. Beirut, Lebanon was supposed to host the tournament but the hosting rights was given to the Philippines citing the Syrian Civil War and security concerns in the Middle East in general.[1] This was also the last Asian Championships that served as the qualifying round for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, as a qualifying window will be used starting 2019.

HostingEdit

During the 2012 FIBA Asia Cup in Japan, FIBA Asia accepted the bids of the Philippines, Lebanon and Iran to host the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship. The Philippines' bid, which was presented by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP; the national basketball federation) president Manuel V. Pangilinan, SBP secretary-general Sonny Barrios, Philippine Basketball Association commissioner Chito Salud and former FIBA Asia secretary general Moying Materlino, included hosting the games at the newly constructed Mall of Asia Arena.[2] The Lebanese bid was presented by national team player Fadi El Khatib, which was a 10-minute video demonstration of the venues, of which Ghazir Club Court would be the primary arena.[3] The FIBA Asia Executive Committee awarded the tournament to Lebanon, which shall be hosting its first championship.[4]

Beirut was the host of the 2012 FIBA Asia Champions Cup, the Asian club championship. However, the final between Lebanese club Al-Riyadi and Mahram Tehran was put off due to political tension in the city. In a statement, FIBA Asia secretary general Hagop Khajirian said that "FIBA Asia will take a decision on holding the Final Game of the event very soon".[5]

However, with the escalating Syrian civil war, FIBA Asia announced on January 2013 that they shall move the championship to the Philippines, after the SBP expressed willingly to still host the event. This would be the first time in 40 years that the Philippines hosted the championship.[6]

QualificationEdit

 
Teams that competed in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship, grouped per preliminary round group,

According to the FIBA Asia rules, the host nation Philippines and 2012 FIBA Asia Cup champions Iran automatically qualified. East Asia, West Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Gulf each had two berths while Central Asia and South Asia each had one slot allotted. The other four places are allocated to the zones according to performance in the 2012 FIBA Asia Cup. Therefore, with Japan, Qatar, China, and Chinese Taipei finishing in the top four in that tournament other than Iran and Philippines which were both direct qualifiers, East Asia gained another three berths while the Persian Gulf gained an additional slot.

Included are the teams' FIBA World Rankings prior to the tournament.

Among teams that participated in 2011, Uzbekistan and Indonesia failed to qualify, and Syria did not participate. Returnees include Kazakhstan, which skipped the 2011 tournament after finishing ninth in 2009, Saudi Arabia, which failed to qualify in 2009 and last participated in 2005, Thailand, which last participated in 2001, and Hong Kong, which returned after failing to qualify in 2009 and 2011.

Suspension of the Lebanese federationEdit

Lebanon originally qualified for the tournament after placing second in the 2013 West Asian Basketball Championship. However, after the country's basketball federation was suspended indefinitely by FIBA due to unresolved conflicts within the country's national basketball federation,[7] they were replaced by fourth-placer Iraq.[8] But Iraq declined due to lack of preparation, and FIBA Asia instead tapped the United Arab Emirates to replace them.[9] However, the United Arab Emirates also declined the invitation for the same reason, and after FIBA's confirmation of the Lebanese federation's suspension, FIBA Asia decided not to take in any more replacements, reducing the total number of teams to 15. This left Group B with only three teams, and some games were moved from the Ninoy Aquino Stadium to compensate for the lost games involving Lebanon.[10] All Group B teams thus automatically qualify for the second round, regardless of the outcome of their first round matches.

VenuesEdit

The Mall of Asia Arena (MOA Arena) was chosen as the main venue for the championship, while the Ninoy Aquino Stadium served as the second venue for the tournament.[11] Treston College Gym, the University of Makati Gym, the Makati Coliseum and the Cuneta Astrodome were the designated practice venues.[12]

DrawEdit

The draw was held at the Centennial Ballroom of the Manila Hotel on June 6. Unlike earlier championships where the draw favored stronger teams, FIBA Asia mandated that it will be a "pure draw", or the teams were not seeded, with the host country (the Philippines) picking 13th. At the time of the draw, two participants from the SEABA region were yet to be determined and were designated as "Southeast Asia 1" and "Southeast Asia 2".[13] A separate draw would later be held to determine which teams would be designated as "Southeast Asia 1" and "Southeast Asia 2".[14]

SquadsEdit

Each team has a roster of twelve players. Only one naturalized player per team is allowed by FIBA.

Tournament formatEdit

  • Preliminary round: Three groups of four teams and a group of three teams. Teams from the same group play against each other once. Teams are ranked by points awarded in descending order. Top three advance to the second round.
    • Group tournament ranking system:
      • Games won: 2 points
      • Games lost by ordinary circumstances: 1 point
      • Games lost by default: 1 point, and the score at the time of stoppage if the defaulting team is trailing, or a score of 2–0 if it is leading or if the game is tied.
      • Games lost by forfeit: 0 points and a score of 20–0 against the forfeiting team.
    • Tiebreaking criteria:
      1. Game results between tied teams via points system above
      2. Goal average between games of the tied teams
      3. Goal average for all games of the tied teams
      4. Drawing of lots
  • Second round: Groups A and B shall comprise Group E, while Groups C and D shall comprise Group F. Teams play against teams that have not played yet once, while the records for the teams that they had already met that also advanced are carried over. Same points and tiebreaking system as in the preliminary round. Top four advance to the final round.
  • Final round: Single-elimination tournament for the championship
    • 3rd–4th classification: Playoff for semifinals losers
    • 5th–8th classification: Single-elimination tournament for quarterfinals losers
