The Spanish team is the second main candidate for Olympic gold according to the ranking at the moment as prepared by the International Federation and which has been published on its website. According to this ranking, the main candidate for gold is Australia and state
United would rank third.
The report – which is noted to be subjective – indicates that it is not a question of predictions but an analysis based exclusively on the results obtained in the preparation matches. Australia reaches the first position thanks especially to his victory over state
United in Las Vegas, to which he added as many about Argentina Y Nigeria. The second friendly that he had to play against the United States was not played. The Australian squad is brimming with talent and experience under the leadership of Patty
Mills, and it is led by a new coach, Brian
Goorjian, who already led the team years ago.
Only behind the ‘aussies’ is Spain in this ranking. Their four victories in the first four preparation games stand out and the defeat against the United States was not yet contemplated. The report considers that the National Team has a “winning habit” and that it is second in the world in the official FIBA ranking in absolute category and the current world champion since the championship of China 2019.
After Spain the FIBA places USA, product of his two initial defeats against Nigeria Y Australia: the same defeats that they had conceded, in preparation games, in the previous 29 years.
The FIBA Power Ranking is as follows:
3 United States
10 Czech Republic
