Xavier basketball lands commitment from four-star guard Dahmir Bishop
And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in eight different countries playing on three different continents. The eight remaining members of Japan's basketball team beat Hong Kong on Wednesday to reach the Asian Games quarterfinals after a turbulent few days that saw four teammates sent home. Inspired by guard Leo Vendrame PG , the Japanese held off their opponents in a topsy-turvy match that went down to the wire.
The victory was all the more impressive after four Japan team members were ordered to leave the Games on Monday having spent the night with women in a Jakarta hotel.
The Japanese Olympic Committee revoked the quartet's accreditation, leaving two-thirds of the squad to battle on. The impressive response of his players left Argentine coach Herman Mandole in tears as he spoke of the challenges overcome in preparation for the match.
It is very difficult. It was after Thursday's match with Qatar that the incident which led to the expulsion of the four players occurred. Since then, preparations have hardly been ideal.
We will compete the same as if we had 12 players,' said Mandole, who added that he came into the tournament looking to win it. That is our goal. I don't know if it is a good one. It would be a miracle if we could do it. Cheng Liu F lead Taipei with 21 points with 8 rebounds.
While Kuan-chuan Chen finished the game with 14 points, 4 steals, 2 rebounds and 2 blocks. Chen 14, Hu 12, Y. Chen 10, Creighton 9, T. Chou 8, Lin 6, J. Huang 6, Chiang 2, P. Chou 1, Peng 0.
Leung 12, Lau 6, Au Yeung 6, H. Cheng 5, Chow 4, K. Cheng 4, Szeto 2, Wu 0, Lam 0, Yang 0. Qatar survive late Hong Kong surge for win - 1 month ago.
