The Chinese Taipei Basketball Association (CTBA) released the men's and women's competition schedules for the 2011 William Jones Cup invitational tournament.
A total of nine teams entered the men's competition, which will be held from Aug. 6-14 at Sinjhuang Stadium, New Taipei City, and there will be five teams in the women's tourney, which will be played at Taipei Gymnasium from July 31-Aug. 4.
Both groups will adopt the single round robin format to determine the winner.
Complete rosters of the tournament haven't been released yet, but I guess most men's teams will be national teams as most teams would love to use the tourney as a warm-up series to prepare for the upcoming Asian Championship in Wuhan, Hubei, China in September.
In the men's competition, two-time Asian champion Iran will be seeking to three-peat in the Jones Cup as well.
Taiwan will send two teams -- the national team and the national team for the World University Games -- to the five-team women's group. The women's competition will be free of charge.
