    I think no one expected Lo Grippo to be the key player in the game. Argentina is proving that almost every player can help gratly in winning games.

    I dont want to make any excuses about the coaching staff, santiago etc. This is a pathetic showing, inconsistency is the word of the day.
    Manolo is on acid or under a lot of pressure.

    So sad a team full of so much talent. Some players that have led in many stats in leagues in Poland, Croatia and Italy and we look like children on neighborhood playground.

    Why in the blue hell will you put the bench on a game in the second quarter just as you get a good lead and you are playing consistently.

    Do only the top two teams of each pool advance?
    Oh and my comment about the Canada/u.s game is
    I think the U.S gave it to Canada because Canada
    came out pretty strong in the 1st quarter. After
    the first quarter when Canada was down 3, the u.s
    tightened up their defense and blew away with the game.

    Four teams advance from each pool, but records carry over.

    It might have been better if we started off by playing the better teams...they might be overconfident after the these two easy games and have trouble with Canada and Brazil as a result.
    It seems Canada was the one who had the trouble with the USA!

    Uhmmm....., Canada lost to Brazil, 75-67 (8 points margin) and USA beat Canada 113-63 (50 points margin). This USA team is far better than the previous USA teams. With the addition of Redd & Miller definitely improved their outside shooting. With Kidd the leading their play, this team will definitely be hard to beat!

    Uruguay over Puerto Rico 82-79 after trailing by 17 at halftime. Second big comeback win for Uruguay, after a similar game against Panama. Batista had 34 points and 15 rebounds. Puerto Rico had 28 turnovers. Looks like the third straight bad summer for PR...

    So does Argentina throw the game against Panama tomorrow to try and eliminate Puerto Rico?

    That would be foolish, because if so Argentina would drag that loss agains Panama into the second round.

    Right now, Puerto Rico doesn't seem to be able to get higher than the 5th position, except for weird second round results.

    GAME SCHEDULE AND RESULTS


    All times PT (Pacific Time)

    August 22

    Uruguay 88 vs. Panama 84 (Overtime) -- USA Basketball reports: Jaime Lloreda connected on seven-of-10 field goals and tallied 15 first-half points, helping to build a 45-34 lead for his club by the intermission. The key shot of the half, however, was a three-pointer by Leandro Garcia of Uruguay as the first-half buzzer sounded. Building on that momentum, Uruguay outscored Panama 24-to-11 in the third quarter to not only get back in the game, but to take a 58-56 lead heading into the final stanza... Uruguay's Esteban Batista notched a game high 26 points, while Lloreda paced Panama with 21.

    Mexico 100 vs. Puerto Rico 89 -- USA Basketball reports: Mexico's hot shooting continued throughout the first half (54 percent from the field), and behind 22 points from Victor Mariscal, they opened up a 57-45 lead by the break. Puerto Rico rallied in the third quarter and even took a lead during the fourth, but Mexico would not be denied... Llamas would finish with 18 points while Mariscal logged a game high 30 as Mexico triumphed 100-89.

    Brazil 75 vs. Canada 67 -- USA Basketball reports: Facing a 25-12 deficit after one period of play, Canada would make some noise. Juan Mendez's hot hand in the second stanza (five-of-seven from the field), helped pull the Canadians to within three points at the half, 36-33. The second half would once again belong to Leandro Barbosa, who finished with a game high 30 points. Adding 12 points and nine rebounds was forward Tiago Splitter, who was a factor inside all night. Samuel Dalembert tallied 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Canadians while Mendez finished with 18 points in a losing effort.

    USA 112 vs. Venezuela 69 -- USA Basketball reports: The USA employed a balanced attack, with seven players scoring in double digits. Carmelo Anthony and Michael Redd led the United States with 17 apiece. The USA also dominated inside, outscoring the Venezuelans 58-14 in the paint. Defensively, Dwight Howard led the USA with three blocks while Kobe Bryant and LeBron James teamed for 6 steals... Greivis Vasquez led Venezuela with 12 points.

    August 23

    Puerto Rico 108 vs. Panama 67 -- USA Basketball reports: Back-to-back three-pointers from Elias Ayuso and Ricardo Sanchez to start the game helped fuel Puerto Rico’s 12-0 opening run – a run from which Panama never recovered. Puerto Rico had five players score in double figures as they rolled to a 108-67 victory.

    Canada 80 vs. Venezuela 73 -- USA Basketball reports: In a back-and-forth affair in which the lead never crept above seven points, it was Samuel Dalembert’s conversion of a layup in traffic and the free throw to boot with 1:32 remaining that put Canada up to stay, as they held off Venezuela 80-73. The 6’11’’ Dalembert tallied a team-best 18 points and added eight rebounds and five blocks for Canada, which now stands at 1-1 in tournament play.

    Argentina 90 vs. Uruguay 69 -- USA Basketball reports: Day two action at Thomas & Mack Center for the FIBA Americas Championship 2007 kicked off as Uruguay, fresh off its’ opening day overtime victory over Panama (88-84), took the floor against Argentina. The well-rested Argentines got on the board first when Luis Scola followed a Carlos Delfino miss with a tip-in, giving Argentina a 2-0 lead. Slowly but surely, Scola and co. padded their lead, eventually emerging with a 90-69 victory... Scola, who finished with 16 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals, was the most impressive performer.

    USA 123 vs. Virgin Islands 59 -- USA Basketball reports: LeBron James’ thunderous baseline dunk with just over seven minutes remaining in the first quarter might have been the signature play of the period, but it was the quick 15 points Michael Redd racked up that helped the USA build an early lead which the U.S. Virgin Islands would never challenge. The USA coasted for the second consecutive night, this time by a final score of 123-59. The 42-point outburst by the USA in the opening stanza was fueled by Redd’s fluid stroke, as the sharpshooting guard hit three-of-four three-pointers in the period before ultimately finishing with a game high 22 points. Carmelo Anthony also tallied 22 for the winners.

    August 24

    Panama 95 vs. Mexico 90 -- USA Basketball reports: The back-and-forth affair wasn’t decided until the final minute, when missed three-pointers and made free throws would prove to be the difference... J.R. Pinnock’s game-high 30 points led the victors, who also got strong contributions from Jamie Lloreda (19 points) and Enrique Garcia (13 rebounds). Roberto Beck’s 20 points were tops for Mexico, which fell to 1-1 in tournament play.

    Canada 93 vs. Virgin Islands 83 -- USA Basketball reports: The Canadians would get their legs, however, and behind Juan Mendez's 22 points, Leo Rautins' squad held off the Virgin Islands 93-83... Jason Edwin connected on six-of-eight from distance and as a team, the Virgin Islands shot 13-of-24 from beyond the arc (54 percent)... Jason Edwin's 26 points led the Virgin Islands, which fell to 0-2. Alphonso Sheppard added 23 for the Virgin Islands in defeat.

    Argentina 87 vs. Puerto Rico 75 -- USA Basketball reports: Luis Scola was impressive once again, tallying 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Argentines, who also got 15 points from Carlos Delfino. Elias Ayuso led Puerto Rico with 21 points while Carlos Arroyo chipped in with 20. The contest was closer than the final margin of victory would indicate, as Puerto Rico actually led by as many as 14 points in the first half.

    Brazil 101 vs. Venezuela 75 -- USA Basketball reports: Marcelo Machado got Brazil on the right track by scoring 11 of his team high 20 points in the first quarter while going 3-of-4 from three point range... After a slow first half where he was held to just three points, the Phoenix Suns' Leandro Barbosa turned it on and chipped in 12 second half points to help seal the victory for Brazil. Hector Romero led Venezuela with 21 points which drops to (0-3) in the tournament.

    August 25

    USA 113 vs. Canada 63 -- USA Basketball reports: The United States remained perfect at the FIBA Americas 2007 Championship, coasting to a 113-63 victory over Canada on Saturday afternoon. Winning its first three contests by an average of 52 points, the United States has yet to be challenged and now owns a 3-0 mark in tournament play. Carmelo Anthony's 12 first quarter points on five-of-five shooting from the field helped the USA get off to a hot start, but Canada's 10-2 run to close the period made it a 28-21 score... Seven (Team USA) players would score in double figures and crisp passing always seemed to get the ball into the hands of an open shooter... Anthony finished with a game-high 25 points. Pacing Canada with 17 markers was Olu Famutimi.

    Brazil 93 vs. Virgin Islands 89 -- USA Basketball reports: Brazil survived a scare from the U.S. Virgin Islands in the second game of the day at Thomas & Mack Center, trailing by as many as 12 points before rallying late in the third quarter to take control of the game... Leandro Barboa scored 20 of his game-high 36 points in the second half, increasing his average to 27.0 points in the tournament.

    Uruguay 82 vs. Puerto Rico 79 -- USA Basketball reports: Esteban Batista's 34 points and 15 rebounds led Uruguay past Puerto Rico 82-79 on Saturday night at Thomas & Mack Center... Puerto Rico, which led by as many as 19 points earlier in the contest, held a 61-53 advantage heading to the fourth quarter... Jose Barea, who returned tonight from a two-game suspension, led Puerto Rico with 18 points.

    Argentina 104 vs. Mexico 83 -- USA Basketball reports: Tied at 23 apiece after one quarter of play, Argentina began to distance itself in the second, thanks to a hot-shooting Paolo Quinteros... Carlos Delfino led Argentina with 20 points while Quinteros added 18. Roberto Beck tallied 24 points for Mexico in defeat.
