Perbasi to send national team to US for training

For their preparation for the upcoming 2021 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers and the FIBA Asia Cup, the Indonesian Basketball Association (PERBASI) will be sending its national team to the United States for training.

The development was announced by the federation on Thursday.

“For the senior national team, the team will go to the United States for training,” said the statement.

After a month of training, they will head back to Indonesia before heading to Zouk Mikael to face Lebanon on November 26 to open their campaign.

Perbasi continued that the national team players will go back to their mother teams afterward as they compete in the Indonesian Basketball League.

Two weeks before the second window of the Asian Qualifiers, the players will be called back to the national team. Indonesia will take on Saudi Arabia on the road on February 24 and will face Jordan in Amman on the 27th.

Meanwhile, Perbasi is also set to form a “young elite” team.

“Perbasi will continue to strive to net the best talented young athletes from across Indonesia,” the statement continued.

The juniors team will also compete in the IBL tournament.

This is a good step forward for the upstart Indonesian program which also has Lester Prosper and Marques Bolden as their naturalized players. Brandon Jawato is also set to play in the B.League for Utsonomiya — a powerhouse squad in Japan.

Crucial will be the upcoming year for Indonesian basketball as despite being one of the three hots for the 2023 World Cup, it has to finish in the top eight of the Asia Cup next year to have a seat in the global meet.
