Duhok all set for high voltage WABA action - Jun 20, 2011

Expect quite a few sparks to fly, some of them at a high voltage as four WABA contenders vie for the three available qualifying spots in the 11th WABA Championship starting in the Kurdish town on Thursday.
The top three teams will join Lebanon as WABA representatives in the 26th FIBA Asia Championship to be held in Wuhan (China) from Sept 15-25.
Lebanon qualified directly for Wuhan, having won the 3rd FIBA Asia Stankovic Cup at home last year, and have chosen to stay from the Duhok action citing fatigue to many of their top players but there is a lot at stake for the others in fray.
For one, twice defending FIBA Asia champions Iran, face the embarrassing but mandatory task of having to qualify to defend their gold medal at Wuhan, but coach Veselin Matic has announced a full-fledged squad to ensure there are no calamities.
Barring Memphis Grizzlies center Hamed Haddadi (218-C-85, agency: Agency No 10), Matic will field the best of the talents available at his disposal, including the irresistible Samad Nikkhah Bahrami and the crafty Mahdi Kamrani.
Iran open the proceedings on June 23 with a game 2009 FIBA Asia Championship bronze medalists Jordan.
Jordan, themselves have shown they mean business, when they roped former Lebanon NT coach Thomas Baldwin to steer their campaign.
Further, with the presence of Osama Daghlas (199-G-79, college: Midwestern St.) and Abbaas Zaid (203-F-83) in the line-up, Jordan are sure to start as one of the favorites to qualify.
Hosts Iraq will play in the game that follows on the opening day against Syria.
Going by the results in the recent past, Iraq have shown that they possess the wherewithal to match up with the best in the region if not FIBA Asia and given the home advantage Iraq will enjoy, the task is cut out for Syria.
Syria have the experienced Bosnian Mensur Bajramovic as their coach, and given the guile with which the coach handles his wards, the foursome is complete.
