New FIBA World Ranking Men presented by Nike launched
October 13th, 2017


MIES, Switzerland - FIBA on Wednesday launched the new FIBA World Ranking Men, presented by Nike. The innovative game-based ranking factors in results from official games played by 149 national teams and will be updated after every window of Qualifiers and following the conclusion of top official FIBA competitions.

The new ranking is based on results of games ranging from regional pre-qualifiers all the way to the FIBA Basketball World Cup Final, and includes the Olympic Basketball Tournament as well as the Continental Cups. The previous ranking was purely competition-based and only took into account the final standings of tournaments.

The basic principle is simple: 1,000 basis points are awarded in each game, with the two teams earning a share of these according to the margin of victory or defeat. Weightings are added on a round basis meaning that, when a team progresses through a top official FIBA competition, its wins are worth more with every round it plays.

The ranking has revised weightings of the competitions. For the first time, it sees the implementation of a time decay rewarding teams for their most recent performances. This replaces the system in place under the previous ranking, where all games over the 8-year period received the exact same value.

Finally, the new ranking also recognizes the value of away wins and rewards facing and beating opponents that are higher in the ranking.

FIBA Secretary General and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member Patrick Baumann said: "The new ranking was devised with our new calendar clearly in mind. We are pleased to offer more teams - 149 of them, compared to 91 previously - a ranking that can be updated after every window of the Qualifiers so that national teams, fans and their national federations can follow their progress on a more regular basis. Prior to the change, the rankings already proved to be among the most popular pages on FIBA.basketball and we expect there will be even more debating and conversations taking place following the implementation of this new one."

For now, the new FIBA World Ranking Men, presented by Nike, only applies to senior men's national teams and competitions. FIBA will work towards drawing up and implementing similar systems for the women's and youth (boys and girls) rankings at a later stage.

Making the list for the CBC sub-sub-zone are:

Patrick making himself at home at UCR - 3 months ago
The first thing you notice walking into David Patrick 's gym is the sound. Not the squeaking of rubber soles on hardwood or the metronomic thudding of bouncing balls, but voices. Lots of them. 'The loudest gyms are usually the best teams,' Patrick says, which is why a Tuesday afternoon session in late July is a symphony of chatter, nearly all of it rooted in enthusiasm and encouragement - some from the coaches, but much more from the players themselves. Let's go, boys! Way to shoot, way t...   [read more]

Lakers win sixth league title - 7 months ago
Apparently Warriors only delayed the inevitable. The title is staying in Husbands. Lumber Company Lakers are still the kings, as co-MVPs John Jones and Chiamaka Browne (193-G) both had double-doubles as part of the champs' 68-51 Game 5 victory in Monday's Co-operators General Insurance Premier League finals at the Barbados Community College. It's become an embarrassment of riches now for local basketball's gold standard following a decade of dominance that has seen Lakers win six league c...   [read more]
