    it depends on the result of Brazil - Puerto Rico game
    if Brazil wins then we should have a Puerto Rico - Argentina semifinal game
    if Puerto Rico wins Brazil by 6 or more then they will finish first and Brazil will play Argentina..

    On the flipside, same can be said for Argentina. They are just +2 over Puerto Rico and -9 vs. Brazil. A Puerto Rico win would mean Puerto Rico getting the top spot and Brazil the second. A Puerto Rico loss would mean that ArgeNtina has a chance for a #2 seed--- which is just that a seed and no advantages at all, they meet in a single game anyway.

    Now should Argentina win, Puerto Rico must win by OVER 5 POINTS (4, is another tiebreaker) if they want to avoid Argentina in the semifinals--- of course they'd want that as they have the easier road against DR or CAN in the final four.

    Well it means about a swing of 5 points. If Uruguay wins Canada has to win by that much, otherwise DR advances regardless. If Uruguay loses it doesn't matter what the score is, the winner of the Dominican Republic and Canada goes on to the World Championships.

    Edit: Argentina handling Uruguay casually 38-23 at halftime.

    71-57 now, Argentina running away with it with over 3 minutes left

    Unless Argentina collapses.... looks like it certainly comes down to DR and Canada for the final WC slot.

    Some good minutes for Argentine reserves, and a hell of a start (33-11 during the second quarter)... eventually Scola had to come the rescue.

    Rumors say this may have been the last NT game for many main Uruguayan players, because they would be mad at the Uruguayan Federation and retire from the NT.

    I sincerely hope it's not true.
