The Philippines face the Dominican Republic

Opening the 2023 Basketball World Cup

Finally ending the preparation, the Philippines will open its campaign against the Dominican Republic. 

A capacity crowd is expected in this quadrennial event in the Philippine Arena.

Held in the Philippines after 45 years. 

The Dominican Republic (ranked 23 in the world) has just beaten Canada (ranked 15 in the world) to become one of the favorites to win this year’s World Cup.

However, Towns got disqualified in the last quarter.  They lost to the World Cup champions Spain (ranked 1 in the world) in the other match.

The game will be at 8pm tonight.  We hope the Philippines (ranked 40 in the world) can build on their first World Cup win when they beat Senegal (ranked 37) 81-79 in Seville in 2014.

In the meanwhile, Italy (ranked 10 in the world) will face Angola ( ranked 41 in the world) at 4pm.  

After the Dominican Republic, the Philippines will face Angola on Sunday, August 27th.
