Japan put their names on the historical book here as their men's team humiliated Sri Lanka 148-45 in one of Saturday's matches at the FIBA Asian Championships.

The 103-deficit is one of the most lop-sided matches in the tournament history. China had the record of the most one-sided game in the Asian history as they hammered Indonesia 138-31 at the version of 1985.

Eight of the nine pitched Japanese players had at least 11 points with Yusuke Okada leading the team by 30 points, all from 3-pointers.
