China at London 2012: Direct questions need some direct answers !

As the Chinese teams pack their bags from 2012 London Olympics – some of the players having made their final appearance on the world’s biggest sporting stage – bowing out of medal contention much earlier than they might have hoped, many questions will be raised.

Some – maybe many – of these questions will be basic and therefore can be ignored and brushed aside. But there will be at least a few others that need some introspection and incisive analyses of the situation, and require honest answers.

How did China fall short of matching the expectations – not the hopes of more than a billion but a realistic and pragmatic expectation? Did they give their best shot in moving towards achieving that target? How much of the inadequacies and hindrances that they came across could have been avoided with sharper thinking and better planning?

Maybe the biggest question of them all should be – is this China’s level when pitted against the best in the business?

Now, all the above questions apply for both the men’s and the women’s teams.

In an immediate reaction to the Chinese men getting failing to win a game and making it to the Quarter-Finals, coach Bob Donewald Jr reacted: “This level just proved to be too much for us. We were beat up, and in the end couldn’t deal with this level.”

“We are who we are,” the American further said in in this interview.

“I thought, overall my guys gave it everything they had. In the end, China Basketball has work to do to compete against the world’s best.”

Donewald’s counterpart on the women’s team, Sun Fengwu, might feel relieved that China's women entered the Quarter-Finals – after having asked “not to expect too much from the team in transition” before the event – but even to him all the questions are pertinent.

It might look like it was just one defeat – to Turkey – that undid Chinese women’s more likely chances of a place in the Semi-Finals. But Sun Fengwu should ask and answer himself if that loss that pushed China to the third spot in Group A of the Preliminary Round, and a clash against World No 2 and three-time successive silver medalists Australia, could have been  turned into a victory.

Of course, there was this glorious gallantry that China displayed for three-quarters of the Quarter-Final against the Opals before withering out in the fourth quarter. The key point is which aspect of that game that the Chinese women’s team coach chooses to analyse – to bask in the three-quarters of valor or the fourth quarter dry-out!

China’s results – even if not performances – are surely disappointing for the world’s largest community of basketball fans.

But honest answers to the above questions will ensure that these disappointments don’t recur!

So long…

FIBA - Khajirian to take over as FIBA Asia Secretary General

Hagop Khajirian on Friday was unanimously elected as Secretary General of FIBA Asia at the FIBA Asia Central Board meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

The appointment comes after Dato’ Yeoh Choo Hock, the outgoing FIBA Asia Secretary General, relinquished his post due to health reasons.

The FIBA Asia Central Board thanked Dato’ Yeoh for his long tenure and enduring years of service to FIBA Asia and noted that he will serve as an inspiration for future basketball administrators.

“Dato' Yeoh’s contribution to basketball came at a time when the sport was taking its initial steps. Therefore the amount of sacrifice he has made for the sport is unmatchable," said FIBA Asia President Sheikh Saud Ali Thani.

FIBA Secretary General and IOC member Patrick Baumann, who attended the Central Board meeting in Kuala Lumpur, also paid tribute to Dato' Yeoh.

"I would like to thank Dato' Yeoh for his many years of dedicated and loyal service to FIBA," he said. "Under his leadership, basketball has made great strides in Asia.

"Dato' Yeoh was able to bridge the gaps of the many different cultures that make up Asia.

"We look forward to seeing him in the future, in accompanying the newly-elected Secretary General."

Khajirian, FIBA Asia's Deputy Secretary General for the past decade, came to prominence as the founding Secretary General of the West Asian Basketball Association (WABA) in 1998 and joined the FIBA Asia Central Board.

He went on to become a member of the FIBA Asia Executive Committee and became the Deputy Secretary General in 2002.

Under Khajirian’s leadership, WABA - as a FIBA Asia sub-zone - took giant strides with at least one of its teams figuring in the Semi-Finals of the last seven FIBA Asia Championships.

Furthermore, as Chairman of the Marketing and Media Permanent Committee and as Chief of Operations for all events, he has created an efficient and effective blueprint for all FIBA Asia events.

“It is a great responsibility and privilege to be elected to this post,” he said following his election.

“It’s an honour at the same time as a challenge. I will be following the footsteps of Dato Yeoh to carry out my responsibilities.

"Dato Yeoh’s methods are excellent guidelines for all of us to follow."

Baumann welcomed Khajirian's appointment.

"I am very pleased to see Hagop Khajirian follow in Dato' Yeoh's footsteps. Since he first joined the FIBA Asia family in the late 1990s, Hagop has played an integral role, particularly from an operations and management point of view," he said.

"With his appointment as Secretary General for FIBA Asia, the continuity of the great work started out by Dato' Yeoh is assured."

Dato' Yeoh will get to address FIBA Asia's members at a mid-term FIBA Asia Congress to be held this summer.

He will then address the FIBA Central Board at its last meeting of 2012 in November before handing over his position on the Board to Khajirian in November.

Cage body earns right to host Fiba meet

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas executive director Noli Eala announced yesterday that the Philippines gained the nod to host the FIBA-Asia Champions Cup in May.

Eala said, however, that the SBP was unsuccessful in its bid to host the FIBA-Asia Men’s Championship, which went to Lebanon.

Eala received the confirmation via e-mail from FIBA-Asia secretary general Yeoh Cheo Hock last December.

Lebanon actually was bidding for the two events, but had to settle for the men’s championship, which serves as the qualifying tournament for the 2012 Olympics.

“We are excited kahit hindi men’s qualifier ang nakuha natin. Sayang. Pero, the Champions Cup is still the next best thing to host for the Philippines,” said Eala.

The Champions Cup is considered as the premier club championship of FIBA-Asia.

The Philippines last hosted this tournament in 1996, when the then Junel Baculi-coached Hapee Toothpaste squad beat Japan Isuzu-Lynx, 77-74 for the title.

It was the Philippines’ second straight crown after RP-Andok’s clinched the title the previous year with a 107-82 victory over Malaysia-Petronas when it was held in Kuala Lumpur.

Overall, the Philippines had won four club championships, dating back to 1984 when RP-Northern Cement under Ron Jacobs defeated China’s Bayi Rockets, 82-56, in Ipoh, Malaysia.

The following year, the Swift-Philippine Amateur Basketball League quintet pummeled China-Liaoning Hunters, 84-69, to again win the crown when it was held in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Last year, Iran’s Mahram Tehran won its second straight crown at the expense of Qatar’s Al-Rayyan squad in Doha, Qatar.

SBP president Manny Pangilinan lauded FIBA-Asia’s decision to award the Philippines the hosting rights for the FIBA-Asia Cup.

“This is a testimony to the ever improving relations between the FIBA-Asia and SBP. It is a great opportunity for the SBP to welcome our Asian neighbors to our country after a long absence, and provide them with a memorable championship,” said Pangilinan. Peter Atencio
