Dominican Republic, doing their best


As a basketball power in Central America, Dominican Republic aspires to make a decent role in the upcoming World Cup. Not only that, but also yearns to make a lot of noise and sneak between aspiring high glory.

They will play in Group C with Ukraine, Finland, United States, New Zealand and Turkey. The venue will be Bilbao and the stadium is known as the Bizkaia Arena. A complicated group by the way, but not impossible, they are currently 26th at FIBA ranking.

Without any World Cup participation since Philippines 1978, the Dominican squad finished third and fourth respectively in the FIBA Americas tournament. Therefore, they should reaffirm their recent performances facing the future, beyond the requirement that entails. Also, he was never on the podium in a World Cup.

With head coach Orlando Antigua, the Dominican presents names on their roster like Edward Santana, Juan Coronado, Manuel Gerardo Suero and Fortuna. The list is already defined.

Finally, as a preparation, they played the Centrobasket from 1 to 7 August, where they finished in third place. They will face on August 20 against New York at Madison Square Garden. It will be a great experience to test the skills in the hardwood.
