WC ’23 Qualifier vs Panama Postponed

With the impending impact of Tropical Storm Nicole on The Bahamas, FIBA and the Bahamas Basketball Federation announced the postponement of the latest window of the World Cup ‘23 Americas Qualifiers.

Forecasters suggest that the storm is expected to develop into a hurricane by Thursday as it travels through the Northwest Bahamas.

In game one of window five, The Bahamas will now face Panama on Friday, November 10 at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium at 8 pm. The game was originally scheduled to be played on Thursday.

The Bahamas will also host game two of the window against Argentina on Sunday, November 13 at 7:15 pm.

In window four, The Bahamas lost both matchups – at home against Venezuela (86-81) and on the road against Argentina (95-77).

The Bahamas is hoping to become one of the seven teams to qualify for the 2023 World Cup through the six windows over a 15-month period in a home-and-away series from November 2021 to February 2023.
