Jose Ortiz

  Puerto Rico holds off Virgin Islands - Jun 21, 2003 - by Jim Goloboy
Puerto Rico 87-Virgin Islands 86 (Ayuso 25 (4x3), Ortiz 15+12reb+7ast, Casiano 10, D. Santiago 10, Arroyo 7, Fajardo 6, O. Santiago 5, Hatton 5, Latimer 4; Bell 26+8reb, Victor 20, Rhymer 18+8reb, Oliver 13, Sheppard 3, Hodge 2, White 2, Richards 2)
Cuthbert Victor (195-G-83) and Calvert White (191-G/F-75, college: SE Missouri St.) both missed shots in the final seconds as Puerto Rico escaped with an 87-86 win. Puerto Rico had led by 16 points in the third quarter, but a 15-1 run early in the fourth gave the Virgin Islands an 81-79 lead. Eddie Casiano (188-G-72) and Jose Ortiz (210-C-63, college: Oregon St.) each scored 4 points as PR pulled ahead 87-83, and free throws by Kitwana Rhymer (208-C-78, college: Massachusetts) and Kevin Sheppard (182-G-79) could only pull the USVI within 1. Raja Bell (196-F/G-76, agent: Rudoy Herb, college: Florida Intern.) finally showed off his NBA pedigree with 26 points, mostly in the first half. Kitwana Rhymer (208-C-78, college: Massachusetts) also had his strongest game of the tournament. Puerto Rico will play the Dominican Republic in the final.



Horacio
Llamas

  Payano's shot sends Dominican Republic into Centrobasket final - Jun 20, 2003 - by Jim Goloboy
Dominican Republic 94-Mexico 93 (Western 22, Vargas 20, Flores 14, Payano 14, Paniagua 9, Ramirez 8, Lalane 5, J.C. Martinez 2; Quintero 22, Llamas 18+12reb, Pedroza 17, Mariscal 13, Crouse 10, Parada 6, Benitez 3, Zuniga 3, Avila 1)
Carlos Payano (195-F/G-70, college: Dowling) (195-F/G-70, college: Dowling)'s three-pointer with four seconds left gave the Dominicans the final advantage in a see-saw battle with Mexico. The DR led 89-85 with 2:10 remaining, but five straight free throws by Omar Quintero (182-G-81) put Mexico back on top. After the Dominican republic reclaimed the lead on two "Grillo" Vargas free throws, Horacio Llamas (211-C-73), who had struggled all night (6/19 FG, 7 turnovers), hit a three to put Mexico ahead 93-91 and set up Payano's heroics. Mexico will regret their 25 turnovers, which offset a 36-22 rebounding edge. The Dominicans will get a chance at revenge in the final--they have unfinished business with both Puerto Rico (96-60 defeat on Thursday) and the Virgin Islands (eliminated the DR from 2001 Centrobasket.
In earlier consolation games, Guatemala rallied to upset Costa Rica, and the Bahamas sailed past Antigua.
Guatemala 70-Costa Rica 65 (Gillespie 27+9reb, Trigueno 16, Ortiz 14 (4x3), Samayoa 6, Aitkenhead 4, R. Rodriguez 2, Barrios 1; Martinez 18, Smith 17, Gardener 12+11reb, MacDougall 6, Chavarria 5, Arias 4, Simmons 3)
Bahamas 95-Antigua 71 (Ferguson 23, Moss 22+9reb, Pierre 18 (4x3), Joseph 9, Hall 8, Knowles 7, Smith 4, Collie 3, Lightbourne 1; Matthew 24, McCoy 18, M. Davis 13+9, Barton 7, N. Davis 3, Mah. Davis 2+11reb, Joseph 2, Brazier 2)


  Puerto Rico tramples Dominican Republic - Jun 19, 2003 - by Jim Goloboy

Puerto Rico got to rest their starters during their first two games, and it paid off tonight as they used a 31-5 second-half run to demolish the Dominican Republic. Jose Ortiz, Eddie Casiano, and Daniel Santiago, who combined for 19 points in the first two games scored 57 tonight.

David Crouse


  Mexico beats Costa Rica, finishes group play undefeated - Jun 19, 2003 - by Jim Goloboy
Mexico 92-Costa Rica 77 (Llamas 20+12reb, Crouse 17, Quintero 16, Zuniga 15, Parada 11, Pedroza 7, Rochin 4, Mariscal 2; Martinez 29, Smith 23, Gardener 6, Chavarria 6, Simmons 4, Arias 3, Robertson 2, Planes 2, Spencer 2)
Mexico finished Group A play 3-0 after defeating a brave Costa Rican team. Horacio Llamas (211-C-73) had another excellent game, and David Crouse (211-F/C-74, college: USC) rebounded from a disappointing outing against the USVI to score 17 points. Leading by just eight points late in the third quarter (64-56), Mexico went on a 20-11 run to put the game out of reach. For Costa Rica, Henry Martinez (185-G/F-75) and Clifford Smith (193-G-) were again a two-man show. Hernold Gardener had a night he would like to forget, shooting a woeful 2/18 from the field. Mexico and the USVI advance to the semifinals out of Group A, and also qualify for the Tournament of the Americas in August.



Raja Bell


  Virgin Islands, Bahamas win on Day 3 of Centrobasket - Jun 19, 2003 - by Jim Goloboy
