Argentina - Puerto Rico 79-77 (21-20, 20-17, 18-19, 20-21) (Nicolas De Los Santos 22, Diego Gerbaudo 18, Facundo PiƱeiro 14 - Gilberto Clavell Lopez 19, Angel Luis Garcia Garcia 19, Luis Damian Morales Alvarez 12)
Argentina and Puerto Rico fought tooth and nail until the final buzzer Thursday evening, and when the game's regulation 40 minutes had ticked off the clock, it was Argentina that went away the victors having rallied late to take a 79-77 win. Argentina's win, coupled with Canada's win earlier, meant an end of Puerto Rico's hopes for earning one of the four qualifying berths for next year's FIBA U19 World Championship that are up for grabs. Both Canada and Argentina, scheduled to meet Friday, are assured of advancing to the medal round semifinals and thus qualifying for the 2007 FIBA U19 World Championship. Santos scored 22 points to lead Argentina, while Gerbaudo added 18 points and nine assists and Pineiro finished with 14. Puerto Rico's effort was paced by Garcia and Clavell who each tossed in 19 points.

Canada - Bahamas 77-70 (18-17, 15-23, 16-12, 28-18) (Kristopher Joseph 21, Jonathan House 11, Junior Cadougan 9 - Dartyn Lecluse Baker 25, Devaughn Zendal Jackson 22)
Canada defeated Bahamas 77-70. The game was tied at 20 with two minutes left and Canada made a 7-0 run to close the game. Bahamas made costly mistakes and missed shots from ther perimeter to lose the second game of the tournament. Kristopher Joseph led Canada with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Dartyn Baker led Bahamas with 25 points and Devaughn Jackson had 22 points and 14 rebounds. Bahamas dominated the first half 40-33 and still had control at the end of the third quarter. On day 3, Canada takes on Argentina and Bahamas faces Puerto Rico to end the Preliminary round.

Brazil - Uruguay 71-66 (16-18, 14-20, 26-13, 15-15) (Jose Roberto Nardi Duarte 19, Thomas Melazzo 14, Paulo Sergio Prestes 10 - Jason Granger Amodio 14, Matias Correa 12, Juan Cambon 11)
Brazil shot 50.0 percent from 3-point Thursday to best Uruguay 71-66 and secure a berth to Saturday's medal round.
Jose Duarte led with game-highs of 19 points and seven rebounds, Thomas Mellazo scored 14 points and Paulo Prestes tallied 10. Jayson Granger added 14 points to Uruguay's balanced attack, followed by Matias Correa with 12 points, Juan Cambon added 11 and Emiliano Gonzalez contributed 10 points. After committing three straight turnovers to start the game, Brazil's Nardi and Rafael Ferreira each drained a three in the midst of a 9-0 run to help Brazil finish the first quarter down 18-16. The Uruguay loss is the team's second in as many nights, means they finish at the bottom of Pool A and are eliminated from medal contention.
