PHL to host
FIBA Asia tourney

MANILA – The Philippines will host the FIBA Asia championship for the first time in 40 years, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas announced yesterday.

FIBA Asia transferred the site of the prestigious basketball tournament from Beirut to Manila, in light of the volatile situation in Lebanon which originally won the right to host the tournament this year.

The FIBA Asia championship, which will serve as the qualifying tournament to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Madrid, will be held from August 1 to 11 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
