FIBA Asia 2013 Semi-Finals: The Final 4 Teams


From 15 teams, they're down to just 4.

The 4 semi-finalists of FIBA Asia 2013 are Iran, Chinese Taipei, Philippines and Korea. Yeah, you've read it right.

No China and Jordan, who were the 1st and 2nd Placers during the 2011 FIBA Asia.

This marks however the 2nd consecutive time that Philippines and Korea are both playing in FIBA semi-finals.

I have provided you below stats and records for the 4 semi-finalists, based on the information I got from FIBA. Looks like Iran is the team to beat.
