SCHEDULE: 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup
The 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup tips off on September 22 in Chenzhou, China and runs through September 30 with 10 club teams competing, including a selection of players from the Philippines.
The Philippines, which received a wild card entry after Japan withdrew, will be represented by Chooks To Go, with a roster of players still to be announced. The Philippine squad will compete in Group A alongside BC Astana (Kazakhstan), Mono Vampire BC (Thailand), Sarreyet Ramallah (Palestine) and Petrochimi (Iran) in Group A.
Group B will include China Kashgar, Al Riyadi of Lebanon, Dacin Tigers of Chinese-Taipei, ONGC of India, and Al Shabab Al Ahli of the United Arab Emirates.
Both groups will play under single round robin rules to determine the 8 teams (4 from each group) that will move on. Then each team from Group A will face one team from Group B in a knockout format to determine the semifinalists.
The 4 losers from the quarterfinals will then face one another to determine the two teams who will battle for 5th place.
The 4 winners then battle in the semifinals to determine which two teams will move on to the finals and which two teams will end up battling for 3rd. – Rappler.com
