JPN - New Japan coach counts on “past knowledge” to deliver at Wuhan

With absolutely no previous experience at the pro level, Kenji Hasegawa’s appointment as the coach of the Japanese National Team for the 2014 international season is bound to raise a few eye-brows. But given that many top pros in the current squad played under the 54-year-old at the University level, the disadvantage may soon dissipate as Japan begin their rehaul process at the 5th FIBA Asia Cup.

Alapag: Get ready for a special moment for Philippine basketball in August

Chen Nan is enjoying her work on the sidelines – or the “lack of it”

Chen Nan is on a self discovery mission these days. The 31-year-old called it a day on her international career after leading China to the bronze medal at last October’s 25th FIBA Asia Championship for Women in Bangkok (Thailand) and was promptly drafted by Tom Maher to assist him in China’s preparations for the 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women to be played in Turkey from Sept 27-Oct 5.

New team, but same goals as Toroman takes charge of Al Nashama

Rajko Toroman is certainly the go-to guy for FIBA Asia teams looking for resurrection.
