Play-Off bracket1
Monsalve ready for a celebration - Aug 29, 2009

With three easy wins, Brazil has assured itself a place in the quarterfinals of the 2009 FIBA Americas Championship being played at the venerable Roberto Clemente Coliseum. But confidence is not in Jose Manuel Moncho Monsalves vocabulary. The Cariocas head coach knows too well that this tournament is not over, despite what many pundits had said. Thats why the Spanish-born coach is pacing the sidelines of the Dominican Republic-Venezuela game on his teams off day.

Its sort of scouting I guess. There is a lot of basketball ahead. Yes, we have played well enough to win, but we need to do a better job inside. A better job? Brazil is shooting 50% from the floor, 34 from the three point line. Their inside defense, lead by Cleveland Cavaliers F Anderson Varejao and underrated C Tiago Splitter, has been nothing short of spectacular. So much so that he has not needed to turn up the offensive heat so far. If that need arise, another NBA star, Phoenix Suns SG Leandro Barbosa (19 points per game) is ready to lead the charge.

After cakewalking for much of the past two weeks change in the next round were every game is a must win-type. We had played both the Dominican Republic (Day 1 of the tournament) and Puerto Rico (Tuto Marchand Cup) and they are thought teams Of the two, Puerto Rico is the one weighting heavily in the mind of Monsalve. The last time we played them, they were without (Carlos) Arroyo and (Peter John) Ramos. They make a huge difference in their overall game. These additions have made them a very tough inside basketball squad. More so when Ramos and (Danny) Santiago are on the floor at the same time.

The Man as some on his team affectionate call their coach, is as impressed with Ramos sudden development, as most international scouts. When he started out he was so young, inexperienced and with huge expectations on him, that I think detrimental his development. But after having watched him against Uruguay, theres no question he is a different player.
If theres a Puertorrican player Monsalve knows most about, it is the former Orlando Magic PG. Arroyo is outstanding. He does so many things for them. He will complicate things for us on the perimeter.

Still, the Brazilian coach is optimistic, not convince about his teams chances. It will be tough, but I hope for a celebration on the 8th. Why the eight? Thats the day we plan to touch down in Brasilia.
