    Korea won nothing and beaten with large margin in all of their games in the world cup while Philippines won one and all of their losses were very close games and yet Korea are still ranked higher than Philippines.Korea was 3rd in the Fiba Asia and did not participate in the Fiba Asia Cup while Philippines was the silver medalist in the Fiba Asia and finished 3rd in the Fiba Asia Cup.How Fiba ranking works and I don’t understand.

      may stint din po kasi yung U-17 nila sa Fiba worlds which placed higher than our team, pati ata yung last Fiba-Asia U-18 kasama na din sa rating
      and to compare it is only a point lang ang lamang nila sa atin
      PH +3
      Kor +4

      Fiba Asia cup is not included in the ranking computation. only Regional Championship, Olympics, and World cups.

    • agent james says:

      well the points you incur in Fiba ranking will depend on how many Fiba world cup championships you’ve participated, the medals you’ve won, like Fiba Asia, the number of teams you won against. So, its not just qualfying but make sure you win and get medals. Thats how tough it is. Let me ask you again, when was the last time we’re there in Fiba world cup? thats 36 years ago.

      ONE POINT is given to teams that placed 18th to 24th and multiply it by FIVE as a weight of this tournament so they got the same points given that they belong those rankings.
