Lebanon recovers against Iraq after dismal start to qualify for the FIBA Asia Cup 2021

After starting in a very chaotic, selfish way, with a game lacking any strategy whatsoever during almost the first 2 quarters of the match, it was a different Lebanese team that showed up in the second half of the game against Iraq today, to clinch the win that would qualify the team automatically for the FIBA Asia Cup 2021.

With a final score of 78-69, Lebanon’s streak of 3 wins continued this morning, after demolishing India a couple of days ago, making the third window that is going to take place in February 2021 a “useless” walk in the park and a training for the team, who should already have their eyes fixed on the tournament in August next year, one they are trying to win for the first time.
