Its like we have a mental edge on DR or something.

Even if we won, this should only have been a 5 point win or something. Sorry dominicans, I really hope you do qualify for London.

Congratulations to Brasil! It doesnt help Puerto Rico at all, but at least it keeps argentinians mouth shut on Fiba Americas site.:D

Oh yeah!

Panama vs Canada = Canada wins by 20

Uruguay vs Venezuela = Venezuela wins by 10

Dominican Republic vs Argentina = Argentina wins by 15

Puerto Rico vs Brasil = Brasil wins by 5

Mostly set up for who plays who.

Assuming Argentina wins (and I do by 12)

If Brazil wins it is then vs DR in the first round. If PR wins, Argentina plays DR in a rematch, and Brazil and PR have a rematch. I'm going to say Brazil loses in a let down game to Puerto Rico by 5. The rematch though might favor the Brazilians.

Last spot for the Olympic Qualifier is Venezuela's to lose. I think they clinch it plus 10.

Three players of Panama played through the whole game, while four others split time on the court. Pinnock didnt play at all...and they still beat Canada. Now I want to see how Rautins is going to save his head.

Injuries made it more difficult for Leo Rautins this year, but Panama beat Canada on the performance of one player and a coach can't let that happen.

I thought Brasil was looking really mediocre in the first round. But now they seem to have really gelled nicely and are playing some good ball. Only problem is, they might have to beat Argentina twice in this tourney and that might be really tough

He is worst than that, I'm tired of him already.

But at same time I don't blame him, Flor Melendez decided to use a skinny SF to defend Brazil's centers, what a great strategy.

that's no excuse to start yelling at and insulting your coach in front of thousands of people watching the event. Or hit an opposing basketbal player on the face so hard that his eye was swelling and look like he was one of those UFC fighter after they just fought. He is a cancer to that team, he is worst than Angelo reyes and Ayuso combine. That is why he has not seen any minutes for the last 3 years in the nba.

I totally agree, we can not have this type of players in our nt, barea and arroyo are the other ones that have bad attitudes...and i know, they are good but they have bad attitudes....i honestly think in the long run, we are better off without them.

He did what? How come he aint suspended again then? Or was that a hard foul on the brazilian?

Also what is this "Barea gave an unsportsmanlike foul in the game" stuff?

What the heck is going on with team Puerto Rico?

You are absolutely right, I guess I was just upset at Flor to for letting him defend bigger players while he was getting abused. :D

Too bad considering that he has talent and can help this team if he puts his mind to it.

Yes Arroyo and Barea have attitude problems but we are definitely not better off without them, especially Arroyo.
