On the FIBA Central Board meeting in Buenos Aires, FIBA suspended the basketball federations of Guatemala, Morocco and Senegal indefinitely "due to their inability to properly function as the governing body for basketball in their respective countries."NEWS,weblink PR N°25 – Addition of two NFs, new competition system for youth events headline Central Board, FIBA.com, 2013-11-25, 2014-02-02, yes,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20140129213927weblink">weblink 29 January 2014, The Senegalese federation was suspended reportedly due to age fabrication in the 2013 FIBA Under-19 World Championship for Men and for Women; the Senegalese federation was dissolved as a result.NEWS,weblink Senegal dissolves basketball association after cheating scandal, Tamba-Jean, Matthew, Africa Review, 2013-12-05, 2014-02-02, On 2 February, FIBA lifted the suspension on the Senegalese federation after they complied with all of the requirements imposed by the FIBA, clearing the way for the participation of its national team in the tournament.

Rule and format changes

This was the first time the NBA-style 4.90m rectangular free throw lane, the 1.25m restricted arc, and extended three point line (6.6 m [21' 8"] from the basket at the corners; 6.75 m [22' 1.75"] elsewhere) took effect in the tournament.The final round was held in two arenas: in the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid and Palau Sant Jordi, as opposed to a singular arena in 2010. Also, the arrangement of the round of 16 match-ups in the bracket were changed. In 2010, a team from Group A or B can meet a team from Group C or D as early in the quarterfinals, and cannot meet their groupmates until the semifinals. In 2014, teams from Groups A and B were in one half of the bracket played in Madrid, while teams from Groups C and D were in the other half and played in Barcelona; teams from Groups A and B could not meet teams from Group C or D until the final or third-place playoff, and could meet their groupmates as early as the quarterfinals.In 2010, the round of 16 games were held in a span of four days, or two matches per day; in 2014, there would be four games per day, and the round of 16 will be done in two days. From the semifinals onward, unlike in 2010 where the semifinals were held in one day, and the third-place playoff and the final on the next day, the semifinals in 2014 were held on two days, followed by the third-place playoff the next day, and the final on the day after, or one game per day. Finally, the classification round for 5th place was also eliminated.

  • {{nbt|Spain}} and the United States, as the top 2 teams, were to be placed on opposite sides of the bracket for knockout play. As a result, Spain went to Group A and the US to Group C. The other teams in the pot would thus be drawn to either Group B or D.
  • {{nbt|Finland}} could not be placed in a group that already had a European team; therefore they could only be placed in the group containing the USA or {{nbt|Argentina}}.

In this draw, there were four pots, "Pot A" to "Pot D", each corresponding to each preliminary round group, containing six numbers; here, the pot corresponding to the drawn group of a team was drawn to determine its position in the order of games, such as "A1" to "A6", for Group A teams.

Controversies

Australia's alleged tanking

At their final group matches between Australia and Angola, Australia rested their key players towards the end of the game, allowing for Angola to win 91–83, after the Boomers led at the half by double digits. Australia fell to third place, thereby allowing them to face the United States at the semifinals instead of the quarterfinals if they finished second. This so-called "tanking" was blasted by Goran Dragić, whose Slovenian team were defeated by Lithuania in the final group match, dropping them to second place, causing them to face the Americans instead in the quarterfinals if they reach that far. Dragic implored on FIBA "to do something about" it.WEB,weblink Australia accused of 'fixing' in ugly loss to Angola at FIBA World Cup, 2014-09-04, 2014-09-17, Sports Illustrated, Golliver, Ben, Right after Australia's elimination by Turkey in the first round, FIBA announced that the Boomers were under investigation for tanking. Australia coach Andrej Lemanis rejected the accusation that they tanked, saying he rested his players for the next stage due to the heavy tournament schedule, adding that: "We always, as Australians, compete the right way".WEB,weblink Australia’s Boomers under investigation for ‘tanking’, 2014-09-09, 2014-09-17, The Guardian, On 26 November 2014, Australia was cleared of tanking by FIBA.NEWS,weblink Boomers cleared of tanking by FIBA, 2014-11-27, ABC News, 2017-07-20, en-AU, WEB,weblink Archived copy, 2014-12-01, yes,weblink 6 December 2014, WEB,weblink Archived copy, 2014-12-01, yes,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20141204170144weblink">weblink 4 December 2014, NEWS,weblink FIBA clears Aussies of tanking at World Cup, ESPN.com, 2017-07-20,
