There was only one question in day 3 as 3 out of 4 semifinal teams were already known. The only interesting game was between Uruguay and Panama, where the winner gets the chance to play for the medal. Uruguay team won the game 76-68 and will face Brazil in the semis. The other pair is Argentina - Puerto Rico. Shame that no North American team made it to the semifinals.
In Group A there was fight for the top position (and better chances in the semis) between Puerto Rico and host Brazil. The game was very tough and Brazilians managed to get small victory by 3 points (97-94). Marcelo Machado was the top scorer for the winners with 25 points. He was helped by Marcus Vinicius (19) and Joao Paulo Batista (14). Puerto Rico's top player was again point guard Jose Juan Barea, who had 18 points and 10 assists. Canada lost so far everything they could as they were today defeated by Virgin Islands 74-67. Virgin Islands was lead by Carl Krauser and Cuthbert Victor with 20 and 18 points respectively. Jermaine Anderson (17) and Rans Brempong (11) were was best Canadian players.
The toughest game of the day took place in Group B. The winner of game between Uruguay and Panama would make it to the finals. Uruguayan team was better, despite Panamanian players were equal opponent for first half of the game. Uruguay managed to get bigger lead in the third quarter and carry it till the end. The hero of the evening was Uruguay captain Nicolas Mazzarino (181-G-75, agency: Players Group) (27), who was helped by Esteban Batista (20) and Martin Osimani (11). Four Panamanian players got double figures, while Jose Lloreda was the highest scorer with 18 points.

In other game in Group B, leader Argentina made a very nice gesture to depressed U.S. team, allowing them to get finally their first victory. The game was practically for nothing as Argentina already won the group, while USA ended at the last position. Just for the record: Argentina was lead by Roman Gonzalez, who had 21 points and 7 rebounds, while best U.S. player was Dewayne White with 22 points and 7 rebounds.

Day 3 Results:

Group A:
U.S. Virgin Islands - Canada 74-67
Brazil - Puerto Rico 97-94
