FIBA World Cup: Serbia

Serbia’s performance in the FIBA World Cup is no longer surprising, considering how strong their team is. In fact, during their first two games in the contest, this squad was able to show an exceptional quality and determination. They were able to have dominating wins against China, and Puerto Rico, thus, their unbeaten run. Due to this result, they are now at the top of their group, with two wins, a record they want to extend through this match. Offensively, they have no problem as they were led by Nikola Milutinov, and Bogdan Bogdanovic. However, it seems like the two are having troubles recently, as they failed to show the same determination against Puerto Rico. Coming into this game, they are looking to finish their campaign with a perfect run, as fate are now in their own hands.

Aside from the players who opted out for Serbia, they now have a fresh injury concern which is not a good sign for them. Aleksa Avramovic suffered an injury on their last match, while Filip Petrusev remains uncertain for this match.

During the two previous matches for South Sudan, they were able to show why they are deserving of their spots in the World Cup. They have shown a great potential even during their narrow win against Puerto Rico on their opener. Fortunately they were able to bounce back from that loss and have a convincing win against China. All thanks to the outstanding performance of Carlik Jones, who is the team’s top scorer, they were able to get wins. Additionally, Wenyen Gabriel was also able to provide contributions for South Sudan, especially in the paint. As they meet a powerhouse team on their final group stage match, expect this team to go all-out. They need to work harder here, if they are still aiming for a chance in the next round.

Fortunately for South Sudan, they have no fresh injury concern coming into this match, which will be beneficial for them.
