Turkey vs New Zealand 2019 FIBA World Cup Match Preview


Turkey and New Zealand will be facing each other in this classification match in the FIBA world cup.

Both the teams failed to qualify for the last 16.

While Turkey seemed like likely qualifiers after pushing the United States of America team who are firm favorites to win the competition to the brink and losing to them only in Over Time. The loss in the final game against Czech Republic by 76-91 came as a shock to them and killed their hopes of qualification. They defeated Montenegro in the previous game by 79-74.

New Zealand won a single game against Montenegro and could not qualify to the second round but in the second round game they defeated Japan by 111-81.

Here is a look at this game.
