After four third-placed finishes in the past six Asia Cups, South Korea will be hoping they can go further in 2022 – though they still have work to do before reaching the final. The two-time Asia Cup champions had a fairly smooth ride in the qualifying groups, winning four of their six matches, but they finished second thanks to their two defeats against table toppers Philippines. However, they had no such problems in the preliminary rounds of the tournament proper. South Korea opened the tournament with a 93-81 win over China, who will have been many people’s favourites as 16-time winners, and followed that up by beating Chinese Taipei 87-73. A 78-73 victory over Bahrain confirmed South Korea’s perfect group and their direct passaged into the quarter-finals.

New Zealand are only taking part in the FIBA Asia Cup for the second time, reaching the third-place playoff last time out and losing to South Korea after their switch from the Oceania Championships. The Tall Blacks were placed in the same qualifying group as Australia and only finished below the Boomers on head-to-head, after winning two and drawing one of their three matches (one win and one defeat game against Australia). Their reward for qualifying was a group consisting of Lebanon, Philippines and India, and New Zealand opened the tournament with a 100-47 thrashing of the latter. New Zealand did lose their next game 86-72 to Lebanon which meant a 92-75 victory over Philippines wasn’t enough to save them from a playoff battle. However, it was another fairly comfortable victory in the playoffs, with the Tall Blacks beating Syria 97-58.
