Argentina names 18-player preliminary list for the FIBA AmeriCup

4 Luis SCOLA (Argentina); 7 Facundo CAMPAZZO (Argentina)
 

BUENOS AIRES (FIBA AmeriCup 2017) - With clear objectives set, Argentina’s National Team Coach Sergio Hernandez announced his 18-player preliminary list for the FIBA AmeriCup 2017.

"This tournament is an ideal opportunity to continue this generational change, which has been fighting for its space since the Pan American Games in Toronto 2015. The expectation is high, we have two clear objectives: win the AmeriCup and continue with the international projection of players, commanded by the experience and the hierarchy of Captain Luis Scola. It will also be a good chance to watch other guys who were not in previous processes of the National Team," said coach Sergio Hernandez.

"Playing in Argentina gives us an even greater illusion, since there are not so many opportunities to host official tournaments. We will do everything we can to be up to the challenge," added the coach.

Argentina’s preparation will begin on July 31 at the CENARD and prior to the start of the AmeriCup, Sergio Hernandez's team will face Uruguay in two friendlies on August 12 and 13, and then they will host Colombia, Uruguay and Brazil for a preparation tournament on August 19, 18 and 20 in Salta, Argentina.

Argentina, main organizer of continental competition, will be part of Group B in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, and will debut on August 27 against Venezuela, then face Canada and Virgin Islands in consecutive days. The best teams of the Group Phase will advance to Cordoba, Argentina, where the FIBA AmeriCup 2017 Champion will be crowned.

wow Latvia won European gold in 3x3 basketball. :clap: Silver for Slovenia and bronze for Ukraine.

 

No medals for Serbia, Netherlands and France (FIRST 3 TEAMS on WC).

 

Champion in women's competition is Russia, silver for Spain and bronze for Netherlands.

-----------------------------------------

 

I really don't know why our team is always bad on EC. They only have one silver from EC. And tiny bronze from EG. Probably they don't care too much about EC. BUT probably this will be qualification tournament for Tokyo, so Serbian team dislike this :lol:

Congrats, despite missing many of your best talents like Dort or Shittu.

RJ Barrett ... MVP despite being 2 years younger, just insane. There is no way that he wont be drafted first in 2019. Canada has a very bright future ahead. Canada, France and Australia should play for the minor medals from 2020 on, maybe together with Croatia and Spain/Serbia.

At the 2017 FIBA Under-17 Women's Oceania Championship :AUS beat :MHL 166-3 :yikes:

 

Wow, probably biggest victory margin ever... hard to believe a team can't even score 1 point per period.

Our Under 20 womens team won todays semifinal against Belarus and will quickly return to the top division of the U20 ECh :yes

 

They won 4 of the 5 games in the preliminary round against CZE, GER, UKR and ISL and lost to GRE and topped the group, Today by winning the semifinal they are assured to finish among the top 3 promoted teams.

Congrats Babes ! :cheer:

Hard, but not impossible. Finland did the same in 1939 Eurobasket and scored just 1 point through entire match against Estonia

slovenia man"s team will in practice join one of the best slovenian basketball player, who had a lot of injuries and ddnt play a lot of years, erazem lorbek (he was named in first(best) team in eu in 2009).

we dont know how he is prepared, but if he stays fit, he will be a big bonus for the team
