Today's events

We will finally find out who the quarter finals qualifiers are in the men's tournament

The basketball games rage on relentlessly at the Basketball Arena. Today is the turn of the men's tournament, which will resume at 9 am (London time) with the most eagerly awaited challenge of Group A: France, who had secured a victory with an excellent performance against Argentina, will take on Lithuania, who had fallen to the South Americans in the first game to then bounce back with a victory against Nigeria in the second match. The other two challenges of the round seem to have an easily predictable outcome: at 2.30 pm, Argentina will take on Tunisia, currently at the bottom of the pile, while the USA will once again be the last team to take to the basketball court at 10.15 pm, facing Nigeria who, having scored three points in two games are still in with a chance to go through to the quarter finals. In Group B, the most spectacular challenge should be between Brazil and Russia (4.45 pm), both with a full score after winning the first two games of the round. The match between Australia and China, both in search of their first victory, could be very well balanced. Spain, on the other hand, should sail through easily in the game against Great Britain (8 pm) who are unlikely to secure a first victory against the solid Spanish team.
