Serbia still on top on latest FIBA World Cup Power Rankings

Serbia still on top on latest FIBA World Cup Power Rankings

Serbia leads USA and Australia

Teams are timing their form with just a couple of days left before the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 begins. Time to check up on them with the third edition of our Power Rankings.

The formula stays the same as in the actual competition, meaning we went through the possible scenarios in the First Round of the Group Phase, then the Second Round of the Group Phase, and the entire Final Phase. In theory, that means that, let’s say, Canada, Australia and Lithuania cannot all be among the Top 16 because only two of them will actually advance from Group H.

In case this all feels familiar to you, it is because it was also explained in the first Power Rankings two weeks ago. Or, if you missed Volume 1, you probably read about this in Volume 2.


Most of the teams have finished their friendly games, which gave us something to work with in terms of their current form. You can keep track of all the scores in our preparation games tracker.
