Scariolo used 34 players in qualifying for the World Cup and gave new opportunities


The national men's basketball coach, Sergio Scariolo, used a total of 34 players in the qualifying phase for the World Cup in Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia this summer, including several rookies, who have not diminished the competitiveness of a team that qualified sufficiently for the title defense achieved in 2019.

The Italian coach had his best-known players available to face the always complicated FIBA ​​'windows', where he cannot usually count on those who play in the Euroleague or are in the NBA, and the team's performance did not suffer excessively, adding only two defeats , against Georgia in the first phase and against Italy, in the last game of the second phase held this Sunday.

The man from Brescia once again made it clear that he has a lot to choose from in national basketball and that he also knows where to do it, backed by his good work at a structural level. He used 34 players in these twelve games, with the Eurobasket in between and which allowed him to use those he cannot normally have, the highest number since FIBA ​​implemented the qualifying 'windows' calendar in 2017, exceeding 29 for the 2019 World Cup and the 24 for Eurobasket 2022, as reported by the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) on Monday.

Among all of them, Joventut power forward Joel Parra was the most used by the coach, with eleven games played, followed by Jaime Fernández (9), Darío Brizuela (9), Jaime Pradilla (8) and Alberto Díaz (8). , who were also crowned European champions with him, and Yankuba Sima (8).

But in addition, Scariolo gave way to new faces such as point guards Juan Núñez, who was and played on the preparation tour for Eurobasket 2022, Pep Busquets and Dani Pérez, forwards Eric Vila and Alex Reyes, and center Jaume Sorolla.

In terms of statistics, and having played seven or more games in this qualifying phase, the top scorers have been Xabi López-Arostegui (11.1 points in seven games) and Jaime Fernández (10.9 in eight), while that the best rebounder was Sebas Sáiz with an average of 5.6 catches in seven games.
