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. Daniel Vivas (198-F-90) netted 11 points in a losing case. Uruguay pulled down 55 boards including 20 offensive ones. Mexico will face Venezuela today.

Uruguay U18: Miguel Barriola 23+27 boards, Nicolas Catala 16, Bruno Fitipaldo 12
Mexico U18: Carlos Toussaint 13, Daniel Vivas 11


Venezuela U18 - Bahamas U18 85:64
Venezuelan Junior National Team hammered Bahamas in the third game of the preliminary round of the FIBA Americas U18 Championship. It was the first win for Venezuelan team, while Bahamas remained winless. Venezuela thus clinched the third spot in Pool B and would take on Mexico in the classification round. Bahamas will look for their initial win against Uruguay later today. Venezuela once again got a first-class performance from Gregory Echenique (208-C-90). He finished with 33 points and 15 boards to pace the team to the victory. Venezuela opened the game confidently and quickly built a 29:17 advantage. The teams slowed down in the second quarter and combined for 12 points apiece to remain separated by 12 points at halftime. Venezuela made the decisive push in the third stanza as they outgunned their opponents 27:14 to accumulate a crucial advantage. Bahamas managed to shoot down Venezuelan team in the final period but it hardly helped the team at the end. Yonaiker Ecker (179-G-90) came up with 11 points for the winning team. Leon Cooper (188-G-91) secured 18 points for Bahamas. Donathen Moss (201-C-90) chipped in 13 points in defeat. Venezuela shot solid 51% from the field, while limiting Bahamas to just 30% accuracy.
