Twelve Belgian Lions for Turkey, but no Ismael Bako and Retin Obasohan

These twelve Belgian Lions will compete in the Mons Arena on Monday for a piece at the 2023 World Cup.

On Monday, the Belgian Lions will work the last World Cup qualifier in the Mons Arena and against Great Britain. Without Ismael Bako and Retin Obasohan, who had Euroleague obligations and have a busy calendar, but with the same twelve who beat Great Britain in Newcastle on Friday evening.

In the last World Cup qualifier on Monday 27 February (20:30) in the Mons Arena and against Turkey, the Belgian Lions will therefore play with the same selection. No Ismael Bako (Virtus Bologna) and Retin Obosahan (ASVEL Villeurbanne) who were active in the Euroleague with their clubs. “Retin and Ismael have very busy calendars in the French and Italian leagues and the Euroleague. We have good contacts with both clubs and in the past, despite the Euroleague, we had a lot of access to both Belgian Lions. We now respect their schedule and will play against Turkey with the same twelve players on Monday,” said High Performance Manager Jacques Stas. On Monday it will be clear who, after Latvia and Greece, will take the third and final World Cup ticket (August 25-September 10, Japan, Indonesia-Philippines) in Group I. The Belgian Lons must win against Turkey and hope that Serbia loses to Great Britain in its own midst.

Selection Belgian Lions: Vrenz Bleijenbergh (Ostend), Haris Bratanovic (Ostend), Thijs De Ridder (Antwerp Giants), Vincent Kesteloot (Heidelberg), Manu Lecomte (Buducnost Podgorica), Siebe Ledegen (Okapi Aalst), Alex Libert (Spirou Charleroi), Xander Pintelon ( Ostend), Milan Samardzic (Spirou Charleroi), Jonathan Tabu (Cantu), Kevin Tumba (Liège Basket), Thibault Vanderhaegen (Leuven Bears)
