Uruguay U18 - Mexico U18 63:51
Uruguayan U18 National team claimed their first win at the FIBA Americas Championship in Argentina. They held off Mexican counterparts to clinch the third spot in preliminary Group A. Miguel Barriola (193-F-90) came up with a monster performance tallying 23 points and 27 boards to pace Uruguay to the initial success. Uruguay juniors will now take on Bahamas in the classification round. Uruguayan defense worked hard in the opening stanza to limit their opponents to just 8 points for a 12:8 lead heading into the second period. Mexico however struck back in the second quarter and clipped the gap to 2 points at halftime. The teams traded baskets throughout the third stanza and Uruguay remained on top 42:39. Mexican team surged ahead early in the fourth stanza and enjoyed a 44:43 advantage with just over 8 minutes left in the game. But Uruguay exploded with a 20:5 rally to celebrate victory at the end. Nicolas Catala (196-F-91) produced 16 points, while Bruno Fitipaldo (193-G-91) secured 12 points in a win. Carlos Toussaint (191-G-91) answered with 13 points for Mexico.
