The latest FIBA world ranking has been published, following the first window of the FIBA World Cup 2023 Qualifiers that will be staged in Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines.

Strong results have led to changes in the latest FIBA Ranking Men, especially for the likes of Lithuania, Belgium, and Sweden in Europe, Cote d’Ivoire and Cape Verde in Africa, as well as Saudi Arabia in Asia. 

Not much movement in the European FIBA ranking

Lithuania leapfrogging Italy for the No. 8 spot constitutes the only movement inside the top 10 after the Baltic giants romped to an 89-69 home victory over Bulgaria and a 74-66 win away at No. 12 Czech Republic. Meanwhile, Italy split their games against Russia and Netherlands.

Belgium’s rise to No. 36 owes to their convincing 83-57 victory at Slovakia and a thrilling, come-from-behind 73-69 triumph over No. 6 Serbia in the European Qualifiers.

Subsequently, Sweden climbed six places to No. 51  in the FIBA World ranking because of solid efforts against much higher-ranked teams. They were impressive at home against No. 34 Finland, claiming a 72-62 success in Stockholm, and in their next game at No. 4 Slovenia, only fell, 94-89.

Cape Verde makes the biggest move in FIBA World Ranking

The biggest mover in the FIBA World Ranking was Cape Verde, Semi-Finalists at this past summer’s FIBA AfroBasket. The Blue Sharks have jumped 26 points to No. 74 after opening their African Qualifiers campaign with a 79-71 upset of No. 23 Nigeria and following that with narrow defeats to higher-ranked Uganda and Mali. 

Cote d’Ivoire also benefited from strong play in November, rising six places to No. 40 after a stunning come-from-behind win over Angola and big triumphs over both the Central African Republic and Guinea.

Saudi Arabia jumps eight places FIBA rankings

In Asia, Saudia Arabia confirmed their solid showings in the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers 2021 were no fluke in two games against Jordan, a much higher-ranked country at No. 39. Jordan won the first encounter by just seven points, and the Saudis prevailed in the second by eight points, leading to their jump of eight positions to No. 79 in the FIBA World Ranking.

A slight adjustment in the calculation of FIBA ranking

Four years after the introduction of the new FIBA ranking and as men’s national team basketball enters a new cycle leading to the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, the region weights (C) considered in the points calculation have been slightly adjusted based on regional performances in FIBA competitions at world level over the past eight years.
