Russia and South Korea face off in FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
Russia and South Korea take on each other in their opening Group C game in the FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Caracas on Monday.
The Russians qualified for this event after placing third in last year's FIBA-Europe Championship in Lithuania. In preparation for this tournament, the Russians played tune-up games against Turkey, Great Britain and Lithuania.
Out to lead Russia's campaign in the Venezuelan capital are Andrei Kirilenko, Viktor Khryapa and Vitaly Fridzon. Also out to step up are Sasha Kaun, Sergey Monya and Timofey Mozgov.
The South Koreans, meanwhile, barely made it to this tournament. They needed a fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Philippines in the third-place playoff in last year's FIBA-Asia Championship in Wuhan.
Spearheading South Korea's quest for an Olympic ticket are veteran shooter Yang Dong-Geun and young players Oh Sek-Eun, Lee Seung-Jun, Park Chan-Hee and Lee Jung-Hyun.
