대한민국 2023년 온라인카지노 순위 TOP 10
USA Basketball is back atop the FIBA men’s world rankings, even after failing to medal on the World Cup.
Canada soared nine spots to No. 6 in the world after winning bronze, and Latvia — which made the quarterfinals of its first World Cup — climbed 22 spots to No. 8.
The Americans flipped spots with Spain for No. 1 in the world in the updated rankings that were released Friday, reclaiming the top spot that they lost late last 12 months. Spain is now No. 2, and World Cup-champion Germany soared eight spots to No. 3 on the world list — the perfect in that program’s history.
It’s definitely possible now that the Americans will keep the top spot leading into the Paris Olympics, where the U.S. will aim for a fifth consecutive gold medal. FIBA, the game’s governing body, updates its rankings every few months; Friday’s update was the primary tweak to the men’s list since February.
Spain had overtaken the U.S. in November 2022, ending a 12-year run in the top spot for the Americans.
“The world is sweet at basketball,” U.S. point guard Jalen Brunson of the Recent York Knicks said because the World Cup was winding down. “Respect everybody.”
FIBA’s rankings were modified in 2017 to a system that only takes results from essentially the most recent eight years under consideration. The Olympic golds from Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo factor into the present rankings, and clearly help after back-to-back failures to medal on the last two World Cups — the U.S. was seventh at China in 2019 and fourth in Manila earlier this month, falling to Germany in the semifinals and Canada in the bronze-medal game.
The top 10 teams are the U.S., Spain, Germany, Australia (which slipped one spot to No. 4), World Cup silver medalist Serbia (which climbed one spot to No. 5), Canada, Argentina (down three spots to No. 7 after not even making the World Cup field), Latvia, France (down 4 spots to No. 9) and Lithuania (down 4 spots to No. 10).
The most important climber in the rankings after the World Cup was South Sudan, which was No. 63 in the world before the tournament and moved up 32 spots to No. 31. South Sudan qualified for the Paris Olympics after ending the World Cup as the perfect finisher from Africa on the tournament.
“This team is a beam of sunshine, like I keep on saying,” South Sudan coach Royal Ivey said after his team clinched the Olympic berth in Manila. “We’re bringing unity, camaraderie, love and friendship to this country.”
Latvia was the second-biggest climber, rising 22 spots, and Cape Verde — which got a win on the World Cup — improved its rating 19 spots to No. 46.
“We made a press release,” Cape Verde’s Will Tavares, a Rhode Island-born forward, said after the World Cup win. “Although we’re the smallest country, we’ve got a lot heart.”
There are 159 men’s teams in the FIBA rankings. USA Basketball is also ranked No. 1 in the opposite three sets of rankings maintained by FIBA — women, girls and boys, all by wide margins.
