    Costa Rica beat Belize 57-52 in the decisive game after both teams beat El Salvador. Belize led 44-36 in the third quarter before self-destructing.

    Belize (host)
    Cuba
    Bahamas
    Antigua/Barbuda

    Group B

    Apparently Costa Rica withdrew and was replaced by Belize.

    Day 1

    Group A
    Cuba 88 Bahamas 74
    Belize 96 Antigua/Barbuda 70

    Group B
    Paraguay 93 Guyana 53
    Colombia 84 Bolivia 51

    Group A streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjr...9g46M3ogL4WzhA
    Group B streamed here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs1...Jmqj6xdUVM_QGw

    Not sure Belize's whirlwind style will be as effective against younger Cuba and Bahamas teams.

    Day 2

    Group A
    Bahamas 110 Antigua/Barbuda 56
    Cuba 82 Belize 80

    Group B
    Paraguay 75 Bolivia 73
    Colombia 114 Guyana 68

    Cuba blows a 12-point fourth quarter lead but wins it on a basket by Guzman with 15 seconds left. Belize missed two open threes on their final possession. Belize plays the Bahamas for the second spot in the next round.

    Colombia and Paraguay clinched advancement from Group B, Paraguay needing a pair of late free throws to get past an improving Bolivian team. Colombia scored 68 points in the second half against Guyana.

    All four teams that played in the WC qualifiers advance. Nice win for Guyana after a pair of heavy defeats.

    I don't know if you follow lower-level Asia-Pacific basketball, but how do you think these Caribbean and lower-tier South American teams will fare against SEA and lower-tier Oceania teams?

    Any rosters showing up yet?

    The first round starts in about a month - starting to see Eurobasket rosters show up out there that look fairly decent.


    AmeriCup is just so meaningless nowadays, it is tough to tell what kind of players are going to play. I have no idea for Canada - seems like G-League guys (non-two ways) and some domestic players are the most likely result. But for I know FIBA is pressuring FIBA-tied clubs in Europe to release players to go back home and play.

    I'm curious if any of Canada's Euro pros show up for this.

    I'd put Uruguay and Mexico on par with Philippines, South Korea and China. So take that as a measuring stick. Mexico can be better than all three depending on if they get their best playing.
    Panama is almost in this group too (loads of US born players with Panamanian passports). USVI can be dangerous with their better players could beat most Asian teams too (but they are not deep). Bahamas with Heild and Ayton is on par with USVI (better?). I think Mexico and Uruguay would have easily qualified for the WC if in the Asia group - probably Panama too - they seem at that Jordan/Lebanon level. USVI just could not get its best players together constantly enough and had funding issues...but maybe.

    Bahamas without Heild/Ayton is in the tier with Cuba, Columbia, Chile - all a big step down in FIBA Americas - this group who I think you are talking about lose to Asia's best but likely are better than Kazak, Qatar, Syria, India, Iraq, Taiwan, HK etc.).

    Any other thoughts out there?

    Looks like the USA will be pulling most of its roster from the G League.

    No surprise. And it will most likely do the same for the next World Cup in 2023. As for the Americup the only time it was taken seriously was when an Olympic birth was at stake.

    I actually thought this was best case scenario here. It is still a massive talent pool very good players and considering the low profile of these games, I though they may not even get G League players.

    If Canada can get a few of our better non-twoway G League players to play here, I'll be pretty stoked (Mychal Mulder, Lindell Wigginton, Tyler Ennis, Simi Shittu,).


    I did notice the better non-EuroLeague players are showing up on European rosters that have already been announced. So maybe we get a few guys flying back.

    Wow I'm making a eurobasket qualifier thread, and I had no idea the Americup was even doing it!

    I think the rule is we have to send a team now to the Americup to qualify for the Olympics or World Cup, otherwise I imagine we'd entirely ignore it.

    Really for Mexico, Canada, and the US this is just a matter of beating up the Bahamas for qualification.

    US team for the first qualifying window:

    Confirmed for the team are: Jaylen Adams (Wisconsin Herd/St. Bonaventure); Justin Anderson (Long Island Nets/Virginia); Cody Demps (Stockton Kings/ Sacramento State); Kyle Fogg (Beijing Royal Fighters, China/Arizona); Abdul Gaddy (Oklahoma City Blue/Washington); Devon Hall (Oklahoma City Blue/Virginia); Jalen Jones (Capital City Go-Go/Texas A&M); J.P. Macura (Canton Charge/Xavier); Eric Mika (Stockton Kings/Brigham Young); Ivan Rabb (Westchester Knicks/California) Levi Randolph (Canton Charge/Alabama); and James Webb (Iowa Wolves/Boise State).

    Former NBA head coach Mike Fratello is serving as head coach of the USA Basketball Men’s National Team for the February 2020 FIBA AmeriCup qualifying games. Longtime NBA and college assistant coach Andy Greer and former NBA and USA Basketball athlete Othella Harrington are serving as USA assistant coaches.

    Interesting that they are bringing Fogg in from China.

    Really good 12 man roster for Canada considering the circumstances and stakes.
    Many of our better European based non-EuroLeague pros. A few guys missing like Melvin Ejim (injured) Kyle Wiltjer, Tommy Scrubb, Dylan Ennis, Oliver Hanlan, Kenny Chery. But Andrew Nichsolon is a big get with the CBA suspended indefinitely.

    Surprising as this is as good as our mid-season World Cup Qualifier teams. I bet the guys really bought into a mid-season trip home to see family and friends and then a little vacation in the DR.
