The Boomers is just a win away to secure its spot in the Quarterfinals round of 2017 FIBA Asia Cup while the Chinese Taipei is looking for a victory that can take them to the second round.
The Aussie Boomers seems have a great time playing in the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup, this is the first time that FIBA included teams from FIBA Oceania (Australia and New Zealand).
So far they have easily beaten their first two assignments that ended in a blowout. Using their height and athleticism, they appear formidable against their opponents.
Mitch Creek was their top performer player against team Hong Kong where he logged 15 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.
After its stellar performance against team Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei is now in a must win situation to proceed to the next round. Winning is not just enough, they need to beat their opponent today with a surmountable lead.
This is because of the points system in FIBA which is similar in the PBA.
