Jericho Cruz and Guam will have to go through another round of games before they can punch their ticket to the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup proper this August.
FIBA Asia has given the top two slots and the tickets to the Continental Cup to Australia and New Zealand, Sunday evening.
Guam went to Amman for a two-game series with Hong Kong. They won 103-83 and 112-66, respectively, to hike their record to 2-1.
Australia and New Zealand, both with 2-1 records as well, did not play after the first window back in February of 2020.
But New Zealand defeated Guam, 113-94, to gain the tiebreaker advantage.
Both Australia and New Zealand decided not to partake in the second and third window of the Qualifiers. Both cited health and safety concerns due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Guam needs to defeat groupmate Chinese-Taipei to enter the tournament proper. They are also slotted with Indonesia in the second round, which will be held days before the proper.
In the other group are India, Saudi Arabia, and Palestine, with two seats at stake for the 16-nation meet.
Also qualifying in the Clark window are Gilas Men, South Korea, China, and Japan.
The earliest to book their ticket to Jakarta were Lebanon and Bahrain, doing so back in the November window.
Indonesia formally qualified last December after FIBA awarded the country the hosting.
Also in are Iran, Kazakhstan, Jordan, and Syria.
The tournament schedule runs from August 17-29.
