Asian Games 2014: India in Basketball

Men’s and Women’s team of 12 athletes each are representing India at Incheon. India has never won a Basketball medal at Asian games. In 2010 the Men’s won Qualifying Round vs Afghanistan but lost all the 5 matches at Group F. Women’s team also lost all the three matches at Group A stage. But, Indian Men’s have recently won the title at the 2014 Lusofonia Games winning all the 4 matches. That should give some hope for Indian.
