    FIBA World Championship vs. FIBA Americas Championship

    Whats the difference between a FIBAAmericas Championship and a FIBAWorld Championship? It maysound confusing at first, but they are definitely two differenttournaments.

    FIBAAmericas is the basketball zone that encorporates North, South and Central America and theCaribbean. FIBAAmericas competitions include teamsfrom the zone only and each FIBAAmericas competition isa qualifying tournament to earn a slot in the following yearsFIBAWorld Championship. For example, the top four finishers from this years FIBAAmericas U16 Championship qualify to compete in the 2014 FIBAU17World Championship.

    The FIBAWorld Championships include countries thatqualify from the five FIBAzones: FIBAAfrica, FIBAAmericas, FIBAAsia, FIBAEurope and FIBAOceania.

    While a gold medalist at a FIBAAmericas Champi-onship can claim to be the best in the Americas zone, aFIBAWorld Championship gold medalist lays claim to thetop team on the planet.
