Japan, competing with Chu Il Seung-ho for first place in the group, did not have the ‘elite’ team.
As the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) World Cup was held this month,
Asian powerhouses, including Japan, showed less strength in this tournament.
Japan, which won three wins in the World Cup and qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympics,
did not select all of the players who played in the World Cup.
There are no players in their 30s.
There are three players born in 2000, and the most notable player among them is Yuto Kawashima,
born in 2005, who is the youngest player on the team.
Kawashima, who is also the tallest player on the Japanese team at 200cm tall, led Japan to second place in the FIBA U-16 Asian Championship last year and won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.
He is a player that the Japanese basketball world has high expectations for,
as he skipped three years to be selected for the national team at the 2021 FIBA U-19 Basketball World Cup,
where players born in 2002 were eligible to participate.
