How did they qualify:


Turkey were only a few seconds away from clinching a spot in the 2nd round stage. But against a team whose instances of defeat in this game are even rarer than the blue moon itself, you have to make the most of the opportunities you get. But Turkey failed and the USA pounced, and a big opportunity lost.

Turkey missed four straight free throws in the overtime and eventually lost 92-93.

Ufuk Sarıca's men still had an opportunity to clinch a 2nd round spot, but lost again, this time by a 76-91 scoreline against the Czech Republic.

Now the Turks are playing in the Classification round 17-32. For sure, nobody will remember in a few months time which team clinched a spot anywhere between 17-32, but the Olympic qualifiers are around the corner and every team will be looking to take the momentum back to that campaign.

Turks are no different.

New Zealand:

And the New Zealanders are on the same boat or at least want to head in the same direction after missing out on the last-16. Their intended direction or the targets, have been re-set, following a short stay in China. Like Turkey, they want to head to the Olympics as well.

TUR vs NZL Dream11 team News:


  • Ersan İlyasova missed the last game due to a muscle injury. The 32-year-old Milwaukee Bucks forward remains a doubt ahead of this game.
  • Enes Kanter is not with the squad as he pulled out of the tournament due to personal issues.
  • No other injury concerns.
  • If İlyasova fails to recover, Ufuk Sarıca is likely to stick with the same starting five he went with against Montenegro.

New Zealand:

  • New Zealand remain without their captain Mika Vukona. The 37-year-old is recovering from a knee injury.
  • In addition, Reuben Te Rangi is on the sidelines as well and will miss the match.
