TOKYO, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said on Monday that the Tokyo Olympic Games will be held under any circumstances the world will face next summer.
Guo Zixuan scored 10 points in the first quarter as Hebei led at 27-21, while Zhejiang, tagged by its three-pointer shooting, was held to 0 of 4 from 3-point range down the stretch.
In the day's other game, five Jiangsu players scored in double figures, led by center Xu Chenyan's 21 points, as they defeated Xinjiang. Chen Xiaojia and Liang Jiamei also bagged 16 and 15 respectively for Jiangsu.
"Now is an opportune time for me to cement my place. I always say that it's important to feel the responsibility of playing for the national team but that shouldn't be overshadowed by pride. Otherwise the burden can become too much.
He also hopes that Tokyo will host the world championships again soon after the Olympic Games.
