JORDAN MAKE ASIAN BASKETBALL QUARTER-FINALS
Aug 15, 2017
Jordan has booked a place in the quarter-finals of the FIBA Asian Basketball Championships following a hard-earned victory over neighbour's Iraq.
The pair had to meet in a play-off after finishing second in their groups, and it was an evenly contested encounter until Jordan pulled away in the later stages to win 84-70 in the City Arena, Beirut.
Next up on Thursday night will be 'The Tall Blacks' of New Zealand who are one of the Oceania sides invited to take part in the tournament.
The other quarter-final match-ups see Iran meet the hosts Lebanon, Korea face The Philippines and Australia take on China.
