Visa problems for the pr national team

From article

:eek::eek::eek:
Four of their selected players were unable to travel to Brazil for the Tuto Marchand Cup due to visa problems.
What is even worse is that Daniel Santiago, Renaldo Balkman, Andrés Rodríguez and John Holland have no idea where their passports are.
:eek::eek::eek:


Can't Brazilians do exception and let them in country, then later they provide visas?

45 x 18(24 x 2)

Canada only able to score in 3pts shots, Joel Anthony lack of offensive moves, Jesse Young very slow as usual, Levon Kendall very passive in the game, can't score against a very good defense made by brazilian players(Splitter,Giovanonni,Hetscheimmer, Augusto Lima).

Rafael Luz, Alex Garcia and Huertas controling English, Jermaine Andersen and Andy Rautins. Denhan Brown and English made some good shots and if weren't for them the diference would be much bigger.

Splitter and Hetscheimmer showing some ofensive moves on Joel Anthony, who is a good help defender, but one on one...showing no effectiveness.

Brazil will rotate the players a lot now, so the difference will probably be smaller and canada will play better..they were surprised by brazilian defense at first, now they will probably know how to atack it better.

Canada lost yet again this time by 18, 88-70. The score was not indicative of what a blow out this game was; after the first quarter Canada was down 24-4. No, that was not a typo, Canada scored a grand total of FOUR points in an entire quarter, I can't see definitively, but I'm assuming that this is a new record for least points scored in an entire period by Canada. Hey, Leo set a record. :) Splitter dominated Anthony and they only players that were evenly remotely effective for Canada were Carl English, Denham Brown and Jevhon Shepherd. Everyone else was flat out dreadful.

Now, here's my biggest concern: Corey Joseph was nowhere to be found. He didn't play in the game, wasn't in the box score and wasn't visible from the bench. Now, knowing that Leo is the head coach, I automatically assume the worst, despite having no information whatsoever. I swear, if Leo alienated another young player on this team, especially one as talented as Corey Joesph, he should be fired immediately. On a side note, I believe that Leo is now 4-16 in his last 20 games over the last two years with loses to basketball powerhouses Finland, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Czech Republic and he also lost to France by 62 points last month. For the love of God, what does Leo have to do to get fired?

Boxscore (http://www.fibaamericas.com/en/fnabox.asp?g=X&n=1&r=8579)

I have nothing to say about great Brazilans, poor Canadians or brave Puerto Ricans that won by 20 with no PJ Ramos, Carmelo Lee, Peavy and Vassallo, no Santiago and Balkman. But Dominican Republic ... what a disappointment.

New american coach Calipari is either
A) completely washed out and useless
B) hiding his cards

in case A) he's changing team's identity
A) I couldn't follow game till end, but at halftime Dominicans shot 1/6 for 3-points. I see it was 3/15 at end. What :eek: Does he think he can transform team from "score one more than opponent" to "allow one less to opponent" in few weeks of camp? This Dominican team identity is: they win games only if they outscore, outgun, outshoot opponent - thus covering for obvious defensive deficiencies. No problem if Puerto Rico scores 99 on them. Problem is if they don't try to score 100. It is national team, one can not buy, trade draft or recruit new players, you must do best with what you have, that's why some coaches (like Magnano) are great national coaches ... while some coaches never well adapt from coaching club to leading NT.

in case B) he's hiding team's identity
But that is plain stupid then, from whom is he hiding cards? All teams and players at FIBA Americas know well Dominicans. Childish, i would say. If it was preparation for Olympic qualifying tournament and him trying to hide something from European teams and New Zealand ... then I would understand it. But with what they showed yesterday, they might not even see qualifying tournament. They'll lose even to Canada if this is best they can manage. And only 3rd to 5th qualify for preolympic, (with sure losses to best 3) one more loss and they're out.

but i hope see Dominician Republic plays a real basketball today, i don't want see my Brazil fights with dead dog, i think they won't played what they can do.

for me, RD, BRA and PUR are in the second unit of tournament... Canada maybe can fight, they have a great defense. ;)

At least Dominicans put up good fight this time, and coach even called some timeouts. But 71 ppg and 14 3-pointers attempted per game will not make cut.

Brazil started like vs Canada, opened 9-1 lead. But Dominicans turned things around and led by 13-18 at end of Q1 and 19-25 early in Q2. However, Brazil made partial score 22-5 to lead 41-30 at HT. DR made it a game again, only 52-48 at start of Q4 and only 58-53 with 6 minutes to go. Then Brazil had decisive 7-0 run for 65-53 lead. Until end Dominicans only made loss more acceptable -6, 70-64.


In other game, Canada was doing fine until 47-45 score in 3rd quarter. Then Ricans made 14-0 run for 16 points lead. Game over.
For Puerto Rico played Santiago, but Balkman did not.

wooow

what a big game guys... was a friendly match??? I don't think so... :eek:

great game to Dominician and Brazil

Splitter was terrible in free throw line (2-12), hope he get better in next days, if he converts at least 50% we could won by a 10 point more margin.

Brazil 89 x 79 P.Rico

Brazil controlled most of the match. The 19's years-old Rafael Luz and Augusto Lima led Brazil with a good defense and energy, frustating JJ Barea, who is a really selfish player, attempts to score.

Canada vs Dominican Republic 62-64
http://live.fibaeurope.com/www/Game.aspx?acc=4&gameID=9662
15-17, 11-22 (26-39), 17-15 (43-54), 19-10

Dominicans led 60-50, then almost chocked.

Despite Horford resting for Dominicans it was something like 10-30 in points in the paint. Canada rested one NBA player too, Rautins ... but yeah, that is not comparable.
In absence of Horford Jack Martinez was man of the match with 16 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists.
Francisko Garcia scored 18 points with 7/10 for 2 points, but missed 5 of 6 three points assists, had 6 turnovers (to go with zero assists and zero rebounds) and majority of his points came in 1ist quarter (11) when he was unstoppable.
Villanueva 6 pts on 2/10 shooting, he too kind of disappeared in 2nd half.
Carl English nice game for Canada, 18 pts, 5 rebounds, 4 three-pointers, 3 assists and 2 steals, though 6/16 FG only.


Brazil vs Puerto Rico 89-79
http://live.fibaeurope.com/www/Game.aspx?acc=4&gameID=9663
27-18, 16-25 (43-43), 22-14 (65-57), 24-22

Arroyo out for PUR, but Balkman in.

At 52-54 in Q3 Brazil made 13-1 for 65-55 lead.

4 AM here, gotta go sleeping.

The problem with barea is that he doesn't trust the other players, and thinks that he needs to take over the game...he needs to have more control and pass the f'n ball!, that's why i prefer arroyo because he is more suited to fiba and play's better.

First congratulations to Brazil for a third Tuto win.

My thoughts on the four teams.

Brazil- great team. The teams they make without their NBA look almost better than the teams WITH their NBA. Only Splitter and Nene are truly needed (Varejao if you want to rely more on defense than offense). Barbosa is probably on the past prime end of his career so its nice to see Brazil perform so well without him. Most impressive performance in this tournament was against Canada in the first game, when they took Canada out by the end of the first quarter.

Puerto Rico- great team. Shame they never played this tournament as a whole, but still managed to take second place for a second straight year. Without Vasallo, Ramos and Peavy, it was nice to see them pass the ball to each other looking for the open man, rather than try to individually beat the opposing team. Of course Barea still needs to be reminded hes not in Dllas anymore, but if their best performance of the tournament against the Dominican Republic proved something, its that with Arroyo as pg he might settle down.

Dominican Republic- Still need to solve some things to be a great team. Mainly their team play, they are playing to 70% of where they should be. Jack Michael specifically proves time and time again he is DR's best player, at least in the stats department. They have the players to do great things, they just have to mantain the patience and work ethic to get where they want to be. Best performance was indeed against Brazil, where even in a loss, they played Brazil the toughest out of all their rivals.

Canada- This team time and time again dissapoints me. I keep thinking they have a great future, they definetly have the right program, and the team plays like one, but what keeps them from the next level is some star power like Steve Nash. Right now I see them as a C level US team. A bunch of role players who need a star player (preferably a pg) who can take the to the championship. Until then they might keep repeating the 2009 Fiba Americas performance, where they are the best team at crushing weak teams, but fail to even contest a game against the best. Best performance here was against DR, hwere they proved they can be dangerous in close games, and dont quit until the game ends.

Until Canada fires Leo Rautins, they will continue to suck. There are now seven Canadians in the NBA, yet only three play for the national team, and one of them is Leo's son. Over the past two years he is now 4-17 over the last twenty two games and that includes losses to noted basketball powerhouses Finland, Bulgaria, Macedonia and the Czech Republic. Within the past two months, Leo has set two records; largest margin of defeat, 62 points to France and least amount of points in a quarter, 4 to Brazil in this very tournament. Leo Rautins must be fired for Canada to progress as a team.

Yes, he will have to learn how to trust his teammates. He is a great player, can score in many situtations, but on a bad day or when they are playing good defense on him, he can loose a game if he keeps this attitude.

P.Rico,Brazil and Dom.Republic will fight for the olympic spot, with Canada trying to surprise(talent they have, they just can't play like a team the whole game, many ups and downs), and maaybe qualify. Uruguay is always a dangerous team.
