AMMAN — Jordan’s national basketball team is in India to prepare for the massive FIBA 2019 World Cup qualifier on Friday, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

With two wins against Syria and Lebanon under their belts, Sam Daghlas’ men are going into the match in Bangalore with high hopes of picking up the win that will keep them top of Group C.

The team camped in Turkey over the past two weeks to prepare, but despite India being at the bottom of the group, Jordan is taking nothing for granted as it then return home immediately after to play Syria in Prince Hamzeh Hall on February 26.

The top three from the four Asian groups will go to the second phase of qualifications, where the 12 teams will be divided into two more groups with only the top three going to the World Cup in China next year.
