  • Not a good start

The official draw for the World Cup had the Philippines clustered with Italy, Serbia, and Angola in Group D.

Senegal will enter with a world rank of 37 overall, but hold a regional rank of 2 in Africa. "The team that we will assemble will pour their hearts and souls into continuing our proud record on the world stage and honouring Tū Kaha by representing the past, the present and the future in everything we do".

Serbia, which was the losing finalist in the 2014 Fiba World Cup and is ranked fourth-best in the world, is the favorite to rule Group D. The group will be played in Dongguan.

Gilas Pilipinas will join Serbia, Italy, Angola, in the first round of the 2019 FIBA World Cup after the tournament's groupings were determined in a draw on Saturday, March 16, in Shenzhen, China.

France, ranked third in the world behind top-rated US and then Spain, are in Group G with the Dominican Republic, Jordan and European rivals Germany.

Former NBA and Team USA star Kobe Bryant, now a World Cup ambassador, told the draw ceremony: "The USA has some really stiff competition". The top two teams from Group H will combine with the top two from Group H (probably France and Germany) to form a new group for the second round. Our world ranking consistently puts us in amongst the world's best teams, but basketball is one of the true global sports, with anyone in the top 50 or 60 capable of beating a top ten team on their day.

"In my experience, the World Cup is not about the first round - it's all about the second round", Ilyasova said.

Group H looks particularly competitive, lining up Canada, Senegal, Lithuania and Australia. There will be 12 teams in the Olympic field - host Japan is one, and seven other nations will directly qualify from the World Cup.

The other four will reach Tokyo through qualifying tournaments over the next year.

The Tall Blacks will play Greece, Brazil and Montenegro at the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

"At the start of the game you hear your national anthem being played, you see everyone in the arena with their flags, representing their country and colour".

The group phase lasts through September 5, and all three US games in that round will be played in Shanghai. Second-round games will be played from Sept. 6-9, quarterfinal matchups are on Sept. 10-11, the semifinals are on Sept. 13 and the championship game is in Beijing on Sept. 15.
