·         Philippines will play host to the FIBA Asia Championship for the third time – the first time after 40 years.

 

·         Philippines were the champions on both the previous occasions when they hosted the Championship – in its inaugural year in 1960 and in 1973.

 

·         Philippines also won the gold on three other occasions – Taipei 1963, Seoul 1967 and Kuala Lumpur 1986 – the last mentioned incidentally being the last time Philippines finished on the podium.

 

·         At the 26th FIBA Asia Championship at Wuhan (China) in 2011, Philippines ended a 25-year drought of semifinals and finished No 4.

 

·         China, the reigning champions, hold the record for the most number of Championship wins – 15 times.

 

·         Barring one occasion – in 2007 at Tokushima, when they finished 10th, China have won a medal in all their 19 appearances.

 

·         Korea are the only team to have participated in all the 26 Championships so far.

 

·         Korea are also the only team to have entered the semifinals in 25 of the 26 appearances.

·         In Tokushima 2007, Iran became the second country who won their first medal as the gold medal.

 

·         China were the first to post such a record - when they won the title on debut in 1975 Bangkok.

 

·         China have the distinction of achieving a three-peat – or more – on three different occasions.

 

·         From 1975 to 1983, China won five titles in a row, then from 1987 they won it for another penta-peat till 1995, and then from 1999 till 2005 they won four successive gold medals.

 

·         China (1975) and Philippines (1960) hold the unique record of having won the gold in their debut. 1960, was of course the inaugural edition of the FIBA Asia Championship.
