    playing with pain. He leaved the game and went straight to the locker room in the 3th quarter and returned on the 4th

    Argentina will remember that last dunk by Balkman... it was bit disrespectful as Puerto Rico already won the game and no need to show up Argentina...

    Even PR coach was mad... Argentina vs. PR finals would be very interesting...

    Balkman has been PR's X factor in this tourney. He is a mismatch all the opposing centers since he has been the 5 man for PR. He will always be quicker than most and height differential is negated by his athleticsm. I do hope he has matured and learned from what he did here in the Philippines. he is a very talented player when he gets his head in it.
