The 2019 Fiba Basketball World Cup is less than a day away, but a couple of teams in Group D are already up in arms.

Voigt said they were denied the use some of the facilities and claimed that the Italian national team did not receive basketballs to practice with.

“First 24 hours in Foshan and so far @BasketItalyit was refused to [be] given basketballs to practice with,” Voigt tweeted.
