      Maybe Sepp Blatter is FIBA's honcho as well!

      It could be they have a weird ranking process because Tunisia is ranked quite high in their/another continental zone.

      • These FIBA rankings are stupid we'd beat Great Britain and Tunisia by 60 if we played them

            • The whole ranking system is a farce, Canada should be somewhere in the top 15 but because they use a point system that you can normally bank within your geographical region (unless its the FIBA world Championship or Olympics) lesser opponents that win against lesser competition in Asia and Africa earn more points.

              Losing that game to Venezuela will probably hurt Canada for years to come.

                I won't be over it until we qualify for an Olympics.

                • Dominican Republic went up two spots. Cuba who got absolutely demolished by every team makes the biggest leap in the entire globe.

                  Makes sense.

                  • It's FIBA. They have own way of doing things. At the bottom of the FIBA rankings page it explains "how it works." It's based on a 2 Olympic games cycle with heavy weight on the Olympics and the World Cup and not much significance for 3rd place at FIBA Americas.

                    How can Canada be possibly ranked higher in FIBA rankings when Canada almost never qualifies for the Olympics, rarely qualifies for world championships and consistently under performs at FIBA Americas?

                    Canada is well represented in the NBA, getting paid to play is the bigger goal, but in the FIBA realm, the senior men have almost no accomplishments. The Canadian junior, cadet, and women's programs are a different story.

                      So the rankings are some mixture of how well the team has done over the last 4-5 year stretch, and not necessarily a reflection of the current team.

                        HOW IT WORKS

                        1. Event selection and weight

                        FIBA World Championships - 5
                        Olympic Basketball Tournaments - 5
                        FIBA Africa Championships - 0.2
                        FIBA Americas Championships - 0.8
                        FIBA Asia Championships - 0.3
                        Eurobasket Championships - 1
                        FIBA Oceania Championships - 0.1

                        2. Competition Ranking Scoring System

                        Gold - 50
                        Silver - 40
                        Bronze - 30
                        4th - 15
                        5th - 14
                        6th - 13
                        7th - 12
                        8th - 11
                        9th - 10
                        10th - 9
                        11th - 8
                        etc...

                        3. Cycle

                        The ranking is calculated within the scope of a 2 Olympic Games cycle (including qualifying competitions at FIBA Zone level). Here are the number of competitions that are taken into account:

                        FIBA World Championships -2
                        Olympic Basketball Tournaments -2
                        FIBA Africa Championships -4
                        FIBA Americas Championships -4
                        FIBA Asia Championships -4
                        Eurobasket Championships -4
                        FIBA Oceania Championships -4

                        Whenever a new championship is played the oldest championship of that category drops out. The FIBA Ranking is then recalculated.

                          • might not be directly related to Canada Basketball but I found this a pretty interesting find in regards to the growth of bball right now.

                              • Tristian not signed yet ? Wow I didn't think Lebron would let this thing go this far ...

                                Andrew Nicholson had monster night this week 23 and 8 ... Let hope he gets more playing time this season .

                                Tyler Ennis still not even healthy enough for contact ...

                                Nik Stauskas .. still hasn't seen game action

                                With David Lee and Amir Johnson joining the Celtics ... Hope Kelly's time won't be effected to much ...
