With Russia beating Korea, D’Tigers have been eliminated from the medal race

A Russia 87 to 83 win against Korea meant the D’Tigers have no chance of picking up a medal.

The Russian’s second win qualified them for the next round.

The Russian basket defeated the D’Tigers in the first game and now has sealed their spot to the next round.

D’Tiger’s hopes now lies in an Olympic qualification which is not in their hands.

The team can only qualify for the 2020 Olympics only if Tunisia loses their next game to peuto Rico.

Tunisia’ first basketball World Cup win puts them in position to advance to the next round and a win in their game will accomplish that wish.

D’Tigers play Korea in their next game.
