Bahamas stretched the margin to as many as 12 points in the third frame however Puerto Rico found the way out. They pulled together to trim the deficit to a single point with ten minutes remaining. The Caribbean team controlled the tempo early in the fourth stanza as they restored a 9-point advantage midway through the frame. But Puerto Rico unleashed a decisive 21:4 run to crown the game and celebrated a spectacular though tough win at the end.

Brazilian U16 National team overcame Mexico to reach the game for the fifth spot at the Fiba Americas championship. They will now take on Puerto Rico for the position. Mexico will play against Bahamas to escape from the last spot in the standings. Brazil entered the game winless and seemed to head for another loss early in the game. Mexican team gained control in the first stanza as Raul Borquez (-93) went on fire. He dropped 8 points in the frame as Mexico accounted for a 24:15 advantage. Borquez continued to terrorize Brazilian defense in the second quarter as he added 8 more points as Mexico maintained the lead. Little changed in the third period as Mexican team looked calm and confident. Sergio Panduro crowned the frame with a three-pointer to give Mexico a 60:48 advantage after three quarters of action. But Brazil found the ways to recover in the final term. They were trailing by 4 points with under a minute remaining however buckets from Giovanni Martini and Luis da Costa tied the score at the end of regulation. Eventually Igor Avelino stepped up with back-to-back jumpers late in the extra period to propel Brazil to the initial win at the tournament.
Murilo Nocetti dropped 20 points to pace Brazil. Luis Da Costa had 12 points for the winners. Raul Borquez responded with 29 points for Mexico. Oscar Murillo (-92) notched 17 points and 7 rebounds in defeat.
