    Background: China's basketball team earned the right to start in next year's Los Angeles Olympics when they retained the Asian Basketball championship title in Hong Kong. The Chinese men's team dominated their match against Japanese players at the Hong Kong Coliseum on November 29, winning 95-71. Japan's sharpshooter Korihiko Kitahara was hampered by the tight marking of the Chinese team. China shot to a 14-4 lead after only five minutes of play, and with a series of scoring shots from Kuang Lubin (No. 8) they moved steadily ahead. At half time the score stood at 49-32 to China. After the interval, China's Guo Yonglin (No. 7), later named "Player of the Championship", added 20 points to his personal 25 point match total. The disorganised Japanese defence was unable to counter China's superior running, shooting and passing. Five Chinese players were included in the Asian All-Stars, a team nominated by the coaches of various participating countries and the press.
