There are only 3 teams still undefeated: Puerto Rico, Argentina and host team Brazil.
In Group A there is a clear split into two top teams which already advanced to the semifinals: Brazil and Puerto Rico, and two bottom ones (Canada and U.S. Virgin Islands). This time Brazil got easy game against Canada crushing them by ...35 points. Murilo da Rosa (207-C-83) lead host team with 24 points and 7 rebounds, while Marcus Vinicius and Joao Batista helped with 14 and 12 points respectively. Only a son of former Canadian international (Leo) Andy Rautind scored double figures for Canada getting 16 points. Puerto Rico beat U.S. Virgin Islands 62-57 in much closer game. Alejandro Carmona lead Puerto Rico with 23 points and Peter John Ramos helped with double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds. Angelo Reyes netted just 9 points, but grabbed 12 rebounds for the winners. Cuthbert Victor was the top player at losing side with 13 points and the same number of rebounds. After tomorrow's game there will be only one undefeated team when Brazil faces Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands would take 3rd place battle against Canada.
In Group B USA lost their second game, this time to Panama and they are at the bottom of their group. Argentina is the only undefeated team in Group B after they edged Uruguay 71-69. Diego Garcia (16) and Luis Cequeira (13) were top players for Argentina and Uruguay's top scorer was Leandro Garcia with 21 points. It seems that Latin teams broke the bareer of USA and now Panama show real class to future NBA stars, beating them easily 75-67. Panama was lead by Danilo Pinnock (23), Jair Peralta and Dionisio Gomez (11 points each), while the best for U.S. were Roy Hibbert (19) and Drew Neitzel (15). Tomorrow day in Group B should not be a big surprise. USA will face much stronger Argentina in the game for ...nothing. Argentina already won the group and USA will play for 5-8 places anyway. However the game between Panama and Uruguay will be a real treat. The winner will take a second place in the group and make it to the semifinals.

Day 2 games:
Group A:
Puerto Rico - U.S. Virgin Islands 62-57
Brazil - Canada 98-63
Group B:
Argentina - Uruguay 71-69
USA - Panama 67-75
