Mexico - Brazil 61-92
Brazil had no mercy for Mexico at the first day of Quarterfinal Round on FIBA Americas Championship in San Juan. Brazilians remain undefeated and they are currently on top of the standings, together with Puerto Rico (4-0). Mexicans fell to 0-4 and it is hard to believe they will reach Semifinals. Leandrinho Barbosa (190-G-82) stepped up for Brazil scoring 18 points for 23 minutes. Joao Lopes Batista (207-F/C-81, college: Gonzaga) had 11, while Anderson Varejao (205-C-82) followed with 10 pts and 12 rebounds. Omar Quintero (183-G-81, college: S.Nazarene) responded with 13 points in defeat. Noe Alonzo (200-F-83, college: Grand Canyon) and Anthony Pedroza (191-G-79, agency: Edge Sports, college: Oregon) posted 10 pts apiece.

Puerto Rico - Panama 79-51
Another great performance by Team Puerto Rico, who remains unbeaten at the FIBA Americas Championship in San Juan. The host of this prestigious event is currently on top of the Quarterfinal standings, together with Brazil who also has 4-0. Panamanians dropped to 0-4 and their chances for the Semifinals drastically decreased. Peter John Ramos (222-C-85) registered double-double for the hosts, 12 points and 11 rebounds. Guillermo Diaz (188-G-85, college: Miami, FL) also scored 12, while Carlos Arroyo (188-G-79, college: Florida Intern.) netted one point less. Danilo Pinnock (196-G-83, agency: SportsTalent, college: George Washington) shined in defeat with 23 points. All other players in Panama had less than 10.

Uruguay - Dominican Republic 74-80
Dominican Republic outsmarted Uruguay at the first day of Quarterfinal Round in San Juan. With this victory Dominicans jumped to 2-2 record, while Uruguay fell on the same numbers. It means that Dominican Republic has better chance now to reach the Semifinals and it is currently on position No.4. Charlie Villanueva (209-F-84, college: Connecticut) shined in victory with 19 points and 8 rebounds. Alfred Horford (208-F/C-86, college: Florida) had 17 pts and 12 boards, while Luis Flores (188-G-81, college: Manhattan) added 14 pts and 8 rebounds. In the loosing squad, Leandro Garcia Morales (186-G-80, agency: Interperformances, college: Texas A&M) was on fire with 28 points. Esteban Batista (208-F/C-83) this time stopped on 16 pts, plus 8 rebounds.

Canada - Argentina 51-67
Third consecutive win for Argentina, who improved to 3-1 record in the Quarterfinal Round. The good thing for Argentineans is that Venezuela did not qualify for this stage so defeat against them is deleted and Argentina is currently on third place. Canada dropped to 1-3, but still has a chance to reach the Semifinals. Leonardo Gutierrez (200-F-78) top-scored in victory with 15 points. Federico Kammerichs (204-F-80) had 13 points and 7 boards, while Luis Scola (206-F/C-80) helped with 12 pts and 9 rebounds. In Team Canada, Carl English (192-G-81, college: Hawaii) collected 17 points and 6 rebounds. Jesse Young (207-C-80, college: George Mason) netted 13 pts.
