Head coach Toru Onzuka told the Japan Basketball Association (JBA), “I was under pressure from the point guard, and I couldn’t make a game and stagnated. It’s a big point that I’ve lost,” and analyzed the cause of defeat. As “three wins are the borderline to advance to the final tournament” (JBA), Japan will be required to win against France on the 26th and against Australia on the 27th.
