Title: Mar del Plata ~ Argentina - Pre-Olympic Qualifying Basketball Tournament: Eric Musselman blogs from FIBA Americas

Eric Musselman blogs from FIBA Americas
The Beginning

On July 18th, we took a long fight from San Francisco to Caracas, Venezuela for the start of our training camp. I was injured, so my wife Danyelle travelled to help me get adjusted. Just a few days before the flight, I tore my Achilles, so I travelled with a case and crutches.

We arrived in La Guaira, a beautiful place just five minutes from the airport, and we stayed at the 5-Star Marriott Hotel. The training camp experience went well. We had all the meals on a 12th floor restaurant that overlooked the beach of La Guaira. Most of our meals included fresh fish. Assistant coach Brad Greenberg had traveled to Venezuela a few days before and did a great job meeting with the players before I arrived.

Training camp began with 13 straight days of practices. We practiced twice each day and the players were focused and worked hard. We played our first two games in Caracas at the "Gimansio Joaquin Papá Carrillo" with the first night a sellout. It was a very enthusiastic crowd.

(Venezuela v Japan)

Japan's coach is an American coach named Tom Wiseman. He brought his team to South America because he wanted his team to experience playing against a fast and athletic team.

We then went back to two-a-day- practices for two days for the Super 4 played in La Guaira at the "Polideportivo José María Vargas" - the home of the Bucaneros de La Guaira team. The first day we played against Cuba and won 92-61. Greivis Vasquez had a very good night, scoring 18 points, and Axier Sucre came off the bench to add 10 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes. Cuba´s team is coach by Argentinian Ariel Amarillo and was led in scoring by Yorman Polas, who had 16 Points.

The next day we played against Panama and won 94-56 - our fourth straight victory since the start of training camp. Panama coach Dave Rosario wasn't with the team because he had just finished coaching in the play-offs in Puerto Rico. Having playing against Panama last year at the CentroBasket, we know that Coach Rosario's team will be very patient and have great execution in Mar del Plata. Off the bench for us, Jose Vargas had 12 points in 16 minutes. Panama was led in scoring by guard Jamahr Warren, who is an off guard but played the point in this game.

It was good to see Panama player Alex Smith, one of my former players in the NBA Development league with the Reno Bighorns last year.

The last game in La Guaira was against Brazil and it was a phenomenal first half for both teams. However, in the second half everything changed. Brazil is extremely well coached and the players really understand coach Ruben Magnano's system. Coach Magnano won a gold medal with the Argentina team (2004 Olympics). Tiago Splitter, who plays with the San Antonio Spurs, didn´t play in this game. He will be a very important part of their team in Mar del Plata. Brazil won 78-63. We had a bad shooting night - 34% from the field and 17% from three-point range. Marcelo Machado had 14 points in 21 minutes and Giovannoni Guilhermi had 19 points and six rebounds for Brazil.

Brazil won the tournament 3-0, Venezuela went 2-1, Panama 1-2 and Cuba 0-3.

Travel to Argentina - August 10, 2011

The day stared great as Oscar Torres joined us. Oscar will be our starting three man and will provide great veteran leadership for our young team. I was surprised to learn that a flight from Caracas to Buenos Aires was seven hours. My two sons Michael and Matthew were with the team helping as ball boys at the Super 4 in Venezuela and came with us to Argentina.

Cordoba, Argentina

We spent the night in Buenos Aires, where my wife Danyelle also met the team on a flight from Atlanta, and the next day we all took a flight to Cordoba for the Super 4. We stayed in a nice hotel in Cordoba that was next to a mall and the arena was within walking distance from the hotel.

Our first game was against Uruguay, a very physical team, and they do a great job settings screens. Without Esteban Batista, their best inside player, Venezuela won 86-79 and our record moved to 5-1 . Grevis Vasquez was 8 of 11 from the field and 6 of 6 from the foul line while off guard Leandro Garcia Morales had 25 points for Uruguay. The next day we played in the final game against Argentina, who beat Cuba the night before. This Argentina team plays as if they are on a mission. The players have a laser like approach that is similar to an NBA team that is closing in on a NBA championship.

Argentina's roster is filled with six current or former NBA players: Emanuel Ginobili, Luis Scola, Andres Nocioni, Carlos Delfino, Fabricio Oberto and Pepe Sánchez. Oberto was playing in front of his hometown fans and the sold-out crowd greeted him with a great ovation.

Greivis Vasquez of the Memphis Grizzlies was injured the night before against Uruguay and he did not play in this game and we struggled without his presence. Backup center Jose Bravo had a very good game with 12 points and six rebounds in just 19 minutes. For Argentina, Ginobili had 22 points in 19 minutes and was 4 of 4 from the three-point line. We did a poor job of defending the three-point shot as Argentina shot 15 of 29 on three-balls.

Argentina appears to have the strongest roster and is the favorite to win the Pre-Olympic.

Rosario, Argentina

Next morning we traveled via bus to Rosario. It was a five-hour bus trip. We left the hotel at 7:00 am. We had a rematch with Argentina and played much better. It was a back-and-forth game and Argentina led by one point at the half. A standing room crowd of over 8,000 made for a great atmosphere. GV (Vasquez) didn´t dress due to soreness in his foot. Fatigue caught up with us in the second game. The final score was 90-73. This was a loss but one we could build off as we took many positive steps. Center Gregory Echenique really responded and played very well for us. He was 3 of 3 from the field and 6 of 6 from the foul line and had 13 points and nine rebounds in just 14 minutes. Nocioni had 13 points and was 3 of 4 from three-ball range for Argentina.

Santa Fe, Argentina

We were informed a few days earlier we would play a game in Santa Fe against Cuba. The bus ride from Rosario to Santa Fe was two hours. We played in front of a small crowd of a few hundred people and beat Cuba. Combo forward Nestor Colmenares and swingman Dwight Lewis came off the bench to spark us. The highlight of the day was the post-game meal we had in the arena where we ate "choripanes" - the best sausage many of us had ever eaten.

After this win over Cuba, our record was 6-3 with a loss to Brazil and two losses to Argentina.

Montevideo, Uruguay

Our next trip was a six-hour bus trip from Santa Fe to Buenos Aires. The bus stopped at a McDonald´s and we grabbed some lunch. We spent that night in Buenos Aires and the next morning we took a ferry boat from Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires to Montevideo, Uruguay.

One thing you will never see in the NBA is three teams on a ferry boat together as Venezuela, Cuba and the Argentina B team were all on the boat. It is neat to see how the players from other countries interact. It is not usual for all the teams to stay at the same hotel in these competitions as well.

In the hotel lobby, we got a chance to meet and talk with Spanish coach (Puerto Rico's 2009 FIBA Americas Championship gold-medal winning coach) Moncho Monsalve. We invited him to our shoot-around that morning and we sat together on the bus and talked basketball. What a great basketball mind!

The Gym "Palacio Peñarol" was very cold for a shoot-around and point guard David Cubillan actually got injured that morning due to the cold and was unable to play for our next two games.

The first night we played against Argentina's B team. They are a young and very talented team that had lost a few days earlier by one point against Paraguay. That night, the arena was extremely cold. It was a close game in the first half but the Argentine B team outplayed us in the second half. They are a tremendous outside shooting team with many three-point threats. Coach Enrique Tolcachier does an incredible job with this team. They execute and really understand their roles.

The second game was against Uruguay. We were surprised at how small the crowd was. Only about 500 people showed up. We played the entire game in a 2-3 zone and a 1-3-1 1/2 (court) trapping zone. We played zone because Uruguay does such a good job in their half-court man to man offense. They set great screens to free up their best shooters and have an inside scoring threat with Esteban Batista.

With our starting point guard David Cubillan still out with an injury, our backup point guard Heissler Guillent had a phenomenal game, scoring 17 points in 23 minutes and he had four assists. We won the game, 83-74.

The third night, game number three in Montevideo, we beat Cuba 84-68 to end the tournament with a 2-1 record and move to 8-4 overall thus far. We played more 2-3 zone and 1-3-1 along with 2-2-1 full-court to try and slow Cuba down in transition.

The most promising thing about this night for Venezuela basketball was this was the first game for power forward Hector "Pepito" Romero, who had been rehabilitating from a knee injury. It was planned for Pepito to play in the game in Luna Park the next night. However, during the day Pepito and I talked while lifting weights at a local health club about starting him that evening and playing just five minutes. We then met with Dr. Juan Letezia to get his approval. That night, Hector played a total of seven minutes with great enthusiasm, scoring our first four points of the game. He finished with six points. We were all very happy for Hector as he has worked hard on his rehab.

For me, August 24th was a big day back home to miss. It was my son Mathew's 11th birthday, and my sister Nicole's birthday is on the same day. It was also the first day of school for both my sons. As a coach, it is days like this one that are so hard.

Buenos Aires

August 25th was the hardest day of travel yet for us.

After playing the previous three nights in Montevideo, we traveled by plane to Buenos Aires for our game that night. Although only a 40-minute flight, it was still an international flight and required us to be at the airport two hours prior to flying. Plus, we had to go through customs which took some time. At the hotel upon our arrival, we had to wait over an hour to get our room keys and yet still had to play a game against Argentina - the world's third ranked team - that night. The players did an awesome job of getting ready that night prior to tip-off in front a sold out 8,000 seat Luna Park arena. We ended up losing by four points but I have never been prouder of a team.

The effort of the guys was unbelievable; we played three point guards together at the same time down the stretch of the fourth quarter, and forward Windi Graterol was phenomenal the entire game as he had 15 points and nine rebounds. David Cubillan had 16 points. We lost 77-73. Hopefully this game will give us more confidence as we head into Mar del Plata.

Three random thoughts after six weeks in South America

On these trips, we had different experiences because of the different cultures. The typical breakfast since we have been on the road has been tons of meat and cheese.

Also, here the games start at 10:00 pm, and dinners are pretty late. Most off-game nights we eat dinner at 9 or 10 pm and after games, we usually eat at 12 midnight or even 1 am on some occasions.




The facilities are much different than what you see in the US. I have great respect for the elite players that represent national teams outside the US.

Title: Eric Musselman's second blog about FIBA Americas Championship ~ Eric Musselman is the coach of Venezuela

Eric Musselman's second blog

We trained long and hard in Venezuela, Argentina and Uruguay and finally arrived in Mar del Plata three days before the FIBA Americas Championship.

The bus trip from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata was five hours.

Most of the teams are staying at the same hotel and eat meals in one large dining room with tables reserved for each team. It´s nice because it gives players and coaches time to interact and socialize. One of the assistant coaches of Canada is Scott Roth, a former high school teammate of mine. It's great to be able to spend time with him. I have also enjoyed talking with Canada's Head Coach Leo Rautins and Dominican Republic Coach John Calapari and assistant coaches Billy Bayno and Dell Harris. I've also had the chance to spend time with players on other teams that I have coached.

The first night in Mar del Plata, we practiced at "Punto Sur", a sport club 20 minutes from the hotel. It was a nice facility but the gym was pretty cold. On Monday, we had a great shoot-around in the arena "Polideportivo Islas Malvinas" where we play the tournament. Former NBA great Gail Goodrich was at practice because he is working as a TV analyst for FIBA.

Pre-Olympics

August 30 v Brazil

Our first game was on Tuesday against Brazil. They are extremely well coached. Our staff worked hard to prepare for this one. Daniel Seoane broke down film to show the team and Brad Greenberg did the walk through of Brazil plays. The guys gave a great effort on the court and played a strong game, but Brazil's experience showed as they have played together for so many years and knew how to close the game. Brazil point guard Marcelo Huertas had a phenomenal floor game and played well down the stretch. Greivis Vasquez played his heart out for us and got to the foul line 11 times and had seven assists to go with 26 points.

August 31 v Dominican Republic

Our second game had an early 11:30am start. We played with great enthusiasm and effort and went to a zone defense for most of the game. The Dominican Republic has one of the best big men in the world - NBA All Star Al Horford. We felt a zone might be able to neutralize him a bit. However the Dominican Republic has a deep team with former NBA player Louis Flores and current NBA player Charlie Villanueva coming off the bench for them. No other team in the tournament has current or former NBA players coming off the bench for them. Flores had a strong fourth quarter and was a key to the Dominicans beating us 92-89. Oscar Torres had 19 points in 28 minutes for us and Vasquez nearly had a triple-double with 16 points, nine assists and 10 rebounds.


September 1 v Cuba

We played our best game of the tournament today as our backs were against the wall after two very tough losses. It was a must win for us and our players really responded as we beat Cuba 106-60. We got great play from both starting guards (Greivis Vasquez and David Cubillan) today and our bench was terrific as Dwight Lewis and Nester Colmenares, two players who have not gotten an opportunity to play much, both did this time and were terrific. Cuba was led in scoring by point guard Alexis Mestre (six 3-pointers, 26pts).

Friday, September 2

Our staff will scout the Cuba v Canada game and then head to our 2pm practice to begin the preparations for Canada. We have a bye after three games in three nights. The Canada contest on Saturday will be a physical game as Canada has played great defense throughout the first part of the tournament. Their defense is keyed by Miami Heat center Joel Anthony and they have two great outside shooters in Carl English and New York Knick Andy Rautins, as well as NBA first round draft pick Cory Joseph.

Eric Musselman's third blog

Friday, September 2

The day started with me and assistant coaches Brad Greenberg and Henry Paruta scouting the 11:30am contest between Canada and Cuba. Houston Rockets VP of Player Personnel Gerson Rosas is scouting the event and he rode on our team bus to the game. We got a chance to sit together and talk hoops.

Immediately after the game, we went to our 2pm practice. This was our only day without a game so we got in a good two-hour practice. We walked through Canada offensive-sets and how we would defend them and talked about the importance of keeping the game at high pace that could be to our advantage.

After practice, we had a late lunch at 5pm and a team film session on Canada at 6pm. It was our most detailed film session so far as we had three game tapes of Canada to splice together. We also went through Canada's half-court plays and favorite out-of-bounds plays and how we would defend them.

After the team film meeting Brad Greenberg , Daniel Seoane, our GM Alberto Díaz and I went to scout Puerto Rico v Argentina (two opponents we will see next week). We have played Argentina in friendly games leading up to the tournament so we focused on Puerto Rico as it was our first real look at PR.

Between games it was great to chat with USA Basketball's Jim Tooley. Many years ago, I had the chance to be a part of USA Basketball and developed a great relationship with JT.


Saturday September 3

Venezuela vs Canada 103-98 (OT)

Morning team breakfast was at 8:30am and the team bus left the NH Gran Provincial Hotel at 9:40 for the 11:30am game.

This was a huge win for us. We felt we needed a fast-paced game and if the score was in the 60s, it would favor Canada. They are a phenomenal defensive team. Our guards and wings did a good job pushing the ball and our big men (Windy Graterol, Jose Bravo and Axiers Sucre) ran the floor hard as we outscored Canada 33-9 in fast-break points. Greivis Vasquez played a unbelievable first quarter and first half . In the second half we posted Hector "Pepito" Romero and he did a great job getting to the foul line with 14 FTAs (free-throw attempts) and 28 points. He had a huge late 4th quarter steal.

Back-up point guard Jermaine Anderson had a big game for Canada with 28 points in 30 minutes but our wing players GV, Oscar Torres and Jose Vargas did a great job chasing Canada's three-point shooters Carl English and Andrew Rautins. We continue to get great minutes from starting center Gregory Echenque (10pts, 10rbs in 29 minutes) as he outplayed Miami Heat starting center Joel Anthony (9 points/9 rebounds in 32 minutes).

GV fouled out and we relied heavily on David Cubillan down the stretch.

Immediately after the Canada game, we had to begin for our preparation for the next four opponents: Puerto Rico on Monday, Tuesday Argentina, Panama Wednesday and Thursday Uruguay . Assistant coaches Brad Greenberg and Daniele Seoane stayed and scouted the 2:30pm Uruguay win over Paraguay.

Saturday night as a staff, we went and scouted 8:30pm Argentina v Panama game.

Two teams that played hard but where undermanned, Cuba and Paraguay, where eliminated today.

Sunday September 4

We woke up early and started watching more film on Puerto Rico. The pick-and-rolls with Carlos Arroyo and Juan 'JJ' Barea will be a huge concern. A third NBA player on the PR roster is forward Renaldo Balkman, who supplies energy and rebounding. Forward Ricky Sanchez is a great shooter and really spreads the floor for them and is a tough match-up as pick-and-pop player. Inside, they will look to post up Daniel Santiago.

We had a two-hour practice and a team film session on PR. The players have been an extremely focused group in our preparation for games and today was no different. After practice we had a 3pm team lunch and then a film meeting with the team at 7pm.

Monday September 5th

Missing my two-year anniversary with my wife. Will have to settle for early morning film on Puerto Rico. We will have a team breakfast at 10:30 am and get ready for the game with our bus leaving at noon for our 2pm tip-off.

Eric Musselman's LAST blog

Monday, September 5

At 11am, Brad Greenberg and I left the hotel to attend the first game played today and the Dominican Republic beat Panama. Near the end of the game, DR point guard Edgar Sosa suffered a bad leg injury. He had played some solid minutes for coach John Calapari and we are all hopeful that Edgar will have a successful recovery from injury. The DR continues to play excellent basketball.

Venezuela 82 v Puerto Rico 94

We lost today to an excellent Puerto Rico team, 94-82. Puerto Rico hurt us inside as center Daniel Santiago had 22 points on 8-of-9 shooting from the field in 19 minutes and forward Alex Galindo caught fire from the outside. We focused on both guards Jose Barea (3-of-10 from field) and Carlos Arroyo (5-of-12 from the field) and Ricky Sanchez was 2-of-9 from the field but Santiago and NBA forward Ronaldo Balkman came off the bench and had nine points in 11 minutes.

We didn't shoot the ball well today as we hit just 40% from the field. Oscar Torres played well for us and was 5-of-6 from three-point land and had 17 points. Axiers Sucre came off the bench and scored 18 points. We had a very poor third quarter and that was when Puerto Rico opened up the game. With the Puerto Rico game over, it is now time for the staff and players to focus on Argentina. We have tried to have the team only focus on the team in front of us that day and not to look at any other team. The Argentine game v Canada is on local TV so everyone can watch the game from their hotel rooms. The last game of today, Uruguay v Brazil, will be scouted by the staff as we play Uruguay on Thursday.

All the Argentine games have been a full house and a great atmosphere as the home crowd does a great job supporting their team. The Argentine team is the most talented team here and they are well coached and present many problems.

Tuesday, September 6 - Argentina 111 v Venezuela 93

The mood pre-game was pretty focused as we have played Argentina tree times prior to the tournament and with each game, we have played them closer. Our forward Nestor Colmenares was suspended for the game by FIBA for an incident in yesterday's game against Puerto Rico and our off-guard Jose Vargas had a slight hamstring pull and was unavailable. This meant we were down to 10 healthy bodies.

We played a solid game but Argentina shot the ball so well today from three-point land (18-of-28). Our team continues to play hard but we must defend better than we did today. We wanted to play a fast pace game as Argentina leads the tournament in fewest points allowed and we knew we could not play a grind-it-out, slow paced game. The pace was what we wanted and we got good minutes off the bench from back-up point guard Heissler Guillen and Windi Graterol (nine-of-10 from the field). We had decided prior to the game that we wanted to punch the ball inside to Hector Romero as Argentina starts a natural small forward at the power forward spot in Andres Nocioni. Pepito was phenomenal with 21 points in 23 minutes but Nocioni creates a match-up problem at the offensive end for every power forward here. Today was no different as Nocioni went 6-of-7 from the field. He could be one of the most difficult match-ups we have faced. Emanuel Ginobili was spectacular as he shot 10-of-14 from the field.

Wednesday, September 7 - Venezuela v Panama

Tomorrow there will be many great games and our 2pm game against Panama will be no different. Panama has two excellent inside scorers (Jamie Lloreda and Ruben Garces and two scoring guards (Danilo Pinnock and Gary Forbes) who can put points on the board in a hurry.

Thursday, September 8 - Venezuela v Uruguay

Uruguay is a country of 3.4 million people. Their team is led by forward/center Esteban Batista and off-guard Leandro García-Morales. Their coach, Gerardo Jaurí, has done a very good job with his team the entire tournament. We can expect Uruguay to be very physical on this, the last day of the second round.

Wednesday, September 7 - Venezuela 110 Panama 74

This was by far the best overall day for the tournament with every game having great meaning. R.C. Buford, the general manager of the San Antonio Spurs, and New York Knicks scout Scott McGuire, were both scouting. The first game went down to the wire as Canada beat Uruguay. We had the second game and played our best offensive game of the tournament. Coming into the game, we led the tournament in scoring with an average of 92.7 points per game and free throw percentage (78.4%). We are second in 3-point percentage (39.1%). Today we continued to excel in those three categories as we scored 110 points and shot 16 of 32 from three-point range (50%) and 8-of-10 from the foul line. We continue to score early in the shot clock in transition as we outscored Panama 30-2 in fast-break points. The best stat of the game, however, was 32 assists on 43 field goals and only eight turnovers. Greivis Vasquez came into the game as the tournament's second leading scorer (behind Al Horford) and GV had 24 points in 25 minutes. Oscar Torres had 16 points and nailed four 3-pointers. For Panama, they where led in scoring by forward Josimar Ayarza, who had 30 points. We had one of our better defensive efforts as we held Panama's top four scorers (Gary Forbes, Danilio Pinnock, Ruben Garces and Jaime Lloreda) to a combined 33 points.

This win means we control our own destiny in the Thursday game against Uruguay. With a win, we would finish the tournament in fifth place and qualify next summer for another pre-Olympic Qualifier (FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament).

We had our team lunch post game and then the coaching staff began its preparation for Thursday's game against Uruguay. The two night games featured four excellent teams as Argentina played Brazil and the Dominican Republic played Puerto Rico. We decided to have a single-minded focus and as a team ate together at 8:30PM and then watched film on Uruguay tendencies from 9PM to 10PM.

Thursday, September 8 - Venezuela v Uruguay

The day will start with a team breakfast at 10:30am and we will pass out the scouting reports for the players to review. On the bus ride to the arena today, we will have video rolling on Uruguay to get one last look at our opponent.


Friday September 9

The Top 4 teams will begin preparation. Our team will be headed home. Most everyone will take the seven-hour flight from Argentina to Caracas, Venezuela, and I will head from Argentina to San Francisco on a 20-hour day ahead. Then some family time and then off to Los Angeles to begin working for the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA Development League. Two of our coaches used this opportunity to get new jobs as Brad Greenberg will be the head coach of Bucaneros de la Guaira in the Venezuelan Liga Professional De Baloncesto (LPB) league and work for a tremendous owner, Rufo John. Daniel Seoane will be an assistant coach for Bigua of Montevideo, Uruguay, in the Liga Uruguaya De Basket League (LUB).

Thursday, September 8 - Venezuela 92 Uruguay 80

Huge win for Venezuela Basketball!!

We are off to next summer's World Olympic Qualifiers after finishing in fifth place in this tournament (FIBA Americas Championship). We ended the championship with a 4-4 record. We had loses to Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Argentina and wins over Cuba, Canada, Panama and Uruguay. Our goal coming in was to somehow get the fifth spot so all of us are extremely happy.

Many thought this would be a rebuilding year as we went with such a young team. We started two guards with just one year of pro experience - Greivis Vasquez and David Cubillan - and our starting center, Gregory Echenique, is still in college playing at Creighton. Our team's average age was 26, so the future for the Venezuela national team is very bright. Young big men Windi Graterol and Jose Bravo really developed their games in a short period. Off-the-bench players Nestor Colmenares and Dwight Lewis are also first-year professionals.

The day started with a major upset as Panama beat Canada, which meant Uruguay with a win over us by four points or more would qualify. The Panama game gave Uruguay extra motivation. We started the game off posting Hector Romero and he was overpowering in the post with 12 first-quarter points. Oscar Torres and David Cubillan played well throughout the game. The game leaned in our favor in the second half when Greivis Vasquez hit back-to-back three-pointers.

Uruguay got great games from point guard Martin Osimani and off-guard Leandro Garcia Morales.

We ate our team lunch at the hotel and started packing. We will leave the hotel at 10pm and travel to Buenos Aires from the lovely beach town of Mar del Plata on a five-Hour bus trip. The flight back to Caracas, Venezuela, leaves at 7am. The four people going back to the US (Coach Brad Greenberg, Dwight Lewis, Gregory Echenique and me) all leave at 8:30 pm so we will have all day in Buenos Aires to relax.

This was a great tournament and was one of the best experiences I have ever had coaching. I love the FIBA game and feel lucky to have been a part of such a great tournament.

Title: Torneos de Baloncesto Latinoamérica: ¡ Venezuela será la casa del Repechaje Olímpico 2012 !

¡ Venezuela será la casa del Repechaje Olímpico 2012 !

La reunión del Buró Central de FIBA ya produjo hoy su primer anuncio y es uno que retumba en todo el continente Americano pues a Venezuela ha sido otorgada la sede del Repechaje Olímpico 2012,  a jugarse en del 2 al 8 de julio del próximo año.

Luego de un riguroso proceso de inspección, el comité evaluador de FIBA estudió las ofertas y decidió que Lituania y Venezuela serían los finalistas a considerar para servir de anfitriones de este importante torneo mundial que otorgará tres plazas a los Juegos Olímpicos 2012.

Al final, la oferta venezolana pudo más, con el atractivo del compromiso de apoyo total que ha hecho el gobierno y las autoridades del país para remodelar completamente el Poliedro de Caracas, que será la casa oficial del evento, y de crear carriles especiales para alivianar el problema que podía ocasionar el tráfico el tráfico de la ciudad.

El Sr. Carmelo Cortez, presidente de la Federación de Baloncesto Venezuela, manifestó previo al anuncio que su oferta “tiene una fuerte voluntad política de nuestro gobierno para cumplir con todas nuestras obligaciones y organizar un evento FIBA de primera clase que nos hace orgullosos y que hará que los equipos se sientan como en casa. La unión que existe entre las autoridades - no sólo gubernamental, sino también deportivas, como el Ministerio del Deporte, Comité Olímpico Venezolano y la Federación de Baloncesto de Venezuela, prevé una excelente asociación estratégica en vista de un escenario ganador”.

Aunque el país nunca ha organizado un Campeonato de FIBA mundo, Venezuela ya ha organizado torneos de baloncesto internacional, dándole la bienvenida en el 2006 al Campeonato Sudamericano masculino y en el 2002 al Campeonato FIBA Américas U18 masculino.

“Es un día importante en el basquetbol no solo de Venezuela, sino de todo el continente americano. Hoy se nos da una nueva oportunidad de probarle al mundo la capacidad organizativa que tienen nuestras federaciones y, en el trayecto, expandir la gama de países de América con experiencia organizando eventos mundiales de basquetbol. Este tipo de torneo tiene repercusiones no solo en el futuro inmediato de la selección nacional, sino que en todas las ramas del deporte, desde categorías menores hasta baloncesto femenino. La exposición de basquetbol de alto calibre para todos los venezolanos significa un gran paso en el desarrollo de nuestro deporte en el país.”, declaró Horacio Muratore, presidente de FIBA Américas.

Venezuela asistirá al repechaje luego de clasificar en la quinta plaza del Campeonato Preolímpico de Baloncesto de Mar del Plata, Argentina 2011, el cual además de haber otorgado dos cupos directos a Londres (Brasil y Argentina), concedió boletos al repechaje a las selecciones que ocuparon la tercera, cuarta y quinta posición en este torneo.

Greivis Vázquez, el NBA y referente de la selección nacional de Venezuela manifestó previo al anuncio que “la planificación de la preparación será mejor aquí. No queremos ir a otro lugar, porque seguimos soñando con Londres 2012 (Olimpíadas), y si jugamos aquí por qué no lograr esa meta al llegar entre los tres primeros".

Además de Venezuela están clasificados al repechaje Puerto Rico y República Dominicana por América, Angola y Nigeria por África, Grecia, Lituania, Macedonia y Rusia por Europa, Jordania y Korea por Asia, y Nueva Zelanda por Oceanía .

Los grupos se dividirán en cuatro, con tres equipos cada uno. A la siguiente ronda clasificarán las dos mejores selecciones de cada llave. Los cuartos de final se jugarán bajo el formato de "muerte súbita". Luego vendrán las semifinales, los conjuntos finalistas irán a Londres y los perdedores disputarán la última plaza olímpica.




El repechaje olímpico femenino será en Turquía. Lo países representativos de América serán Argentina, Canadá y en la reunión del Buró Central trascendió que la selección nacional femenina de Puerto Rico sustituirá a Cuba, que no podrá llevar a su equipo al clasificatorio olímpico el próximo año.

FIBA Américas - Confirmado el itinerario de la Liga de las Américas 2012
   
La quinta edición de la Liga de las Américas ya tiene su calendario oficial, las sedes de los cuadrangulares de la primera ronda y los equipos participantes.  La Liga, considerada la competencia de clubes más importante del continente, comenzará el 24 de febrero en Cancún, México.

“Es un honor para nosotros, anunciar oficialmente nuestro calendario de competencia y todos los pormenores de este gran evento, que año tras año continua llenándonos de orgullo. Esta vez en su quinta edición, la Liga de las Américas 2012 será la más competitiva que hemos tenido en nuestra historia, pues contamos con clubes muy aguerridos, dignos representantes de su país. Será una competencia que demostrará nuevamente el excelente nivel de basquetbol con  el que cuentan los clubes de América.”, dijo Horacio Muratore, Presidente de FIBA Américas.

Con la participación de 16 equipos la primera fase se juega en cuatro cuadrangulares de cuatro equipos cada uno durante tres días por el sistema de todos contra todos. Los dos mejores equipos de cada cuadrangular pasan a la segunda ronda y se dividen en dos grupos de cuatro y juegan ahora de la misma manera en dos cuadrangulares.

Los dos mejores equipos de cada uno de las cuadrangulares semifinales juegan luego el cuadrangular final o “final four”.

Los equipos participantes son:

Grupo A


Grupo B


Grupo C


Grupo D


Todos los partidos de la Liga de las Américas se transmitirán a través de Fox Sports.

La Liga de las Américas 2012 se jugará en cuatro sedes. El cuadrangular del Grupo A (24-26 de febrero) en Cancún, México; el del Grupo B (2-4 de marzo) en Caracas, Venezuela; el del Grupo C (9-11 de marzo) en Arecibo, Puerto Rico; y el del Grupo D (16 al 18 de marzo) en San Pablo, Brasil.

“La verdad que poner el nombre de La Unión de Formosa en el plano internacional es un orgullo y también era un primer objetivo que nos fijamos desde que estamos en la máxima categoría del básquet argentino.”, dijo Mario Romay, Director Deportivo de La Unión de Formosa. “Tener la posibilidad de competir en la Liga de Las Américas, con la televisación de Fox para todo el continente, y sabiendo también que es como la Copa Libertadores en fútbol, nos hace pensar que es el mejor torneo internacional en el que podemos estar”.

Joinville, por su parte, regresa a la Liga luego de un año de ausencia. Su dirigente, Luis Silva comento que “Este año, tuvimos una revisión drástica en el proyecto tanto como patrocinadores en la parte técnica, y hemos recibido la noticia como una recompensa y un estímulo. Esta es una competencia muy importante, que nos da la oportunidad de competir contra los mejores equipos internacionales. Los jugadores están muy motivados".

Otro club que regresa a la Liga, por segundo año consecutivo es Cocodrilos de Caracas, club de Venezuela que llega con metas de avanzar y demostrar su capacidad. Rostin González, Gerente General de Cocodrilos de Caracas comentó que "a finales de septiembre del año pasado formalizamos nuestra inscripción en el campeonato de clubes más importante en nuestro continente.

En esta ocasión asistiremos por segunda vez a la Liga de las Américas y tenemos el compromiso de asumir un rol muy importante, queremos mejorar nuestra participación en el torneo. Bajo ese concepto podremos generar mayor proyección y desarrollo profesional a todos los que militan en nuestras filas".

En las cuatro ediciones anteriores de la Liga, Peñarol de Mar del Plata ha conquistado dos títulos (2007-08/2009-2010), mientras que Universo (ahora Uniceub)/BRB (2008-09) y Regatas Corrientes (2010-11) cuentan con un campeonato cada uno.

En unas declaraciones previas, el Secretario General de FIBA Américas, el Sr. Alberto García comentó que “esta Liga de las Américas se jugará en su V Edición y ha representado durante las cuatro ediciones anteriores un éxito total para nuestra Institución, ha valorizado las competencias nacionales de los países participantes y ha permitido a jugadores, entrenadores y árbitros un mejor y más elevado taller de desarrollo profesional.




En FIBA Américas junto a nuestros directivos, estamos muy conformes por el desarrollo de esta competencia anual, que permite a los clubes campeones nacionales el participar en un siguiente escalón, en una Liga de carácter internacional.”

Title: Baloncesto en España y Latinoamérica: Argentina’s not finished by a long shot ~ The London Games will be the last hurrah
Post by: Tina Argen on Mar 27, 2012, 06:43:51 AM
Baloncesto en España y Latinoamérica • Basketball in Spain and Latin America

Argentina’s not finished by a long shot

When the subject of Argentina comes up in international basketball, there’s a widely held belief that the London Games will be the last hurrah for the country’s golden generation.
 
While change is inevitable for every national side, you’re mistaken if you think this is going to be the final time that power forward Luis Scola is going to have a major impact on a big tournament.
 
He has played like Superman on numerous occasions for the Argentinians, and he’s at the peak of his game.
 
No player can go on forever, yet Scola remains Argentina’s Superman.
 
It is one reason why he bristles at the suggestion that his national team is coming to the end of a great run.
 
"I don't think London will be a farewell,” the Houston Rockets forward said.
 
“And I don't think it's going to be more special than Athens or Beijing.
 
“I will continue after London with the same enthusiasm.”
 
Argentina’s lofty status in the game is not going to disappear.
 
This is the national team, remember, that finished fifth at the 2010 World Championship.
 
Last year, Argentina captured a gold medal at the FIBA Americas Championship in Mar del Plata.
 
They did so in style, knocking off a good Puerto Rico team and then a solid Brazil in its last two games.
 
Argentina, third in the FIBA World Rankings, are proud.
 
They have a winning tradition.
 
Argentina’s national side is one that the players turn out for because they love having the name of their country across their chest.
 
Scola isn’t going to quit the national team, and don’t be surprised if Andres Nocioni, Manu Ginobili, Carlos Delfino and Pablo Prigioni are with the squad when it travels to Spain for the inaugural FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2014.
 
“I don't think London will be a before or after, nor that after London the world ends,” Scola said.
 
“It's not dramatic."
 
There’s something else that Scola wants to make clear.
 
People are mistaken if they think Argentina have been overly reliant on the old guard.
 
"The (generational) change has been in action for several years,” Scola said, “although there are a few of us that are left."
 
Gone are Hugo Sconochini, Alejandro Montecchia, Ruben Wolkowisky and Walter Herrmann – all members of the 2004 team.
 
But Scola is still around, along with Ginobili, Nocioni, Delfino and Leo Gutierrez.
 
Pablo Prigioni wasn’t in that gold-medal winning side but has been the starting point guard of Argentina for several years and remains an elite player at his position.
 
No matter what happens this summer, Scola is going to make sure that he enjoys himself.
 
Yes, there will be pressure to win games, but he understands what is about to take place in London.
 
"I enjoy the Olympic Games more than any other tournament with the national team because of what they represent at every level,” he said, “more than the sporting side.
 
“It's a unique, cultural event and overtakes basketball and the national team.

"I am very anxious to be at the Olympics.



 
“I’m looking forward to experiencing the Olympic life, to be of the Olympic village, going into the Olympic stadium and seeing other sports.
 
“From a sporting sense, it's of the level of a World Championship, although the Olympics are more important but only by a small margin."

Title: Torneos de Baloncesto en Latinoamérica: Puerto Rico se Podría Quedar sin el Centrobasket Masculino 18 ~ 23 de Junio 2012
Post by: peru_fan on Apr 04, 2012, 09:48:05 AM
Baloncesto en España y Latinoamérica • Basketball in Spain and Latin America

Puerto Rico se podría quedar sin el Centrobasket Masculino 2012

Ante la falta de respuesta por parte de la Federación de PUR con relación a la sede del importante torneo, CONCENCABA le retiraría la organización del Centrobasket masculino de Mayores que se debía realizar del 18 al 23 de junio.

Además, el Sr. Alberto Garcia, Secretario General de FIBA Américas dijo que la Federación recibirá una fuerte sanción por haber dejado un evento a menos de tres meses de su realización. Esta sanción podría costarle a la Federación mucho mas de lo que costaría su propia organización, además de los gastos que representa viajar a México.

Informó el Sr. Garcia que le consta que el presidente de la Federación de Puerto Rico, el Sr. Carlos Beltrán ha hecho ingentes esfuerzos en varios municipios y hasta con el Departamento de Turismo, pero hasta el momento no ha tenido ninguna noticia positiva y por lo tanto no podemos esperar ni un minuto más.

Recordó el secretario que se otorgo a PUR el evento en una licitación en la que estaba involucrada la ciudad de Culiacán, Estado de Sinaloa, México, quien será el candidato a remplazar a PUR en primera instancia.




Este evento, además de clasificar al Campeonato de las Américas 2013, sin sede aun, servirá de preparación de dos de los equipos que disputaran tres plazas a los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres que se jugara en Caracas del 2 al 8 de julio próximo para República Dominicana y el mismo Puerto Rico, por lo que el torneo significaba un gran evento al estar ambos países con sus mejores elementos.

Informó el Sr. Garcia que le ha dado al Sr. Beltrán 72 horas para una decisión final cuyo plazo se vence el miércoles 4 de abril por la noche.

Title: Torneos de Baloncesto en España y Latinoamérica: FIBA – Peligra la participación de Dominicana en el Centrobasket
Post by: zum_zum on May 12, 2012, 01:52:32 AM

FIBA – Peligra la participación de Dominicana en el Centrobasket

En una charla sobre los venideros torneos Centrobasket, el Sr. Alberto García, Secretario General de FIBA Américas, reveló hoy que República Dominicana “lamentablemente podría quedarse sin participar en el Centrobasket e inclusive del Repechaje por cuestión de una deuda económica con FIBA Américas”.

En la tarde de ayer, García asistió al Sorteo de ambos campeonatos Centrobasket, masculino y femenino, a realizarse en junio en Puerto Rico, y habló para fibaamericas.com sobre la importancia de dichos torneos.

FA (fibaamericas.com) – Hoy en su mensaje dentro del sorteo de los campeonatos Centrobasket, usted hizo hincapié en la importancia que ha cobrado este torneo para la zona.

AG (Alberto García) – El torneo siempre ha sido un referente del gran baloncesto que se juega en Centroamérica y el Caribe. Vemos países como Puerto Rico, México, Cuba, República Dominicana y Panamá entre otros, que traen un alto nivel y hacen de este un campeonato competitivo y muy profesional.

En los últimos años lo que se ha dado es que el escenario, del Centrobasket, ha ido en crecimiento. La rivalidad deportiva entre Dominicana y Puerto Rico es muy atractiva en cuanto a lo comercial y televisivo, y este año el campeonato se va a celebrar en un coliseo de calidad mundial.

FA - ¿Cuán importante es que el torneo se haga en el Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot (“Choliseo”)?

AG – Es una de las mejores vitrinas que tiene América, sin duda alguna. Es un coliseo con capacidad de 17,000 espectadores, con unas facilidades que no tienen nada que envidiarle a cualquier coliseo habilitado para la NBA, y con un potencial comercial increíble. Por otro lado las entradas pueden ser mas económicas y se puede garantizar una buena presencia de publico, lo que le dará un marco realmente importante.

Según los datos que se ofrecieron en la conferencia de prensa del lanzamiento del Centrobasket, este Coliseo en comparación con Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, está en tercera posición, solo detrás del Madison Square Garden de Nueva York y del Staples Center de Los Angeles, en venta de taquilla.  Es excelente que juguemos un torneo de CONCENCABA y de FIBA Américas en este gran espacio.

FA - ¿Y del torneo, en cuanto a lo competitivo, que se puede esperar?

AG – Se puede esperar gran baloncesto, con un grupo de selecciones nacionales aguerridas que vienen a dar lo mejor de sí en la cancha. Tenemos a un equipo anfitrión que se prepara para competir en el Repechaje, por lo que se espera esté con todo sus integrantes. Y ellos tendrán contrincantes que vienen a probar su crecimiento, como lo es la selección de México que viene de hacer un gran papel en los Panamericanos. Además, no debemos olvidar que este evento clasifica a los mejores cuatro equipos al Campeonato FIBA Americas 2013 (premundial para España 2014).

FA – República Dominicana también se encuentra en esa posición de prepararse para el repechaje…

AG – Claro, ellos también deben prepararse para Caracas. Con República Dominicana tenemos una lamentable situación. Su Federación de Baloncesto, la Fedombal, tiene una deuda con FIBA Américas que está amenazando su participación en el Centrobasket e inclusive en el Repechaje.

Esta es una deuda que arrastra consigo la Federación desde su administración pasada, pero que lamentablemente le toca cubrir a su administración actual para que su selección nacional pueda competir internacionalmente.




Yo estoy confiado en que ellos van a pagar, porque estuve en Dominicana el pasado 17 de marzo y  conversé con ambos el Ministro del Deporte y el Presidente del Comité Olímpico y les solicité que ayudaran a esta nueva directiva y ellos me prometieron ayudar a la FEDOMBAL a solucionar la situación.

Sin embargo, si no se paga esa deuda, lamentablemente no podrán participar.

Title: FIBA Olympic Qualifying tournament (OQT): Big hopes after South American and Centrobasket Championships
Post by: belladama on Jul 04, 2012, 08:56:10 AM

Big hopes after South American and Centrobasket Championships

Things become a little bit different when you travel to a city where the Olympic Games will take place. Everything has something to do with that.

You wake up thinking of the venues and you go to sleep thinking about Australia's Penny Taylor's injury. That's why when I was following the South American and the Centrobasket Championships, I could only think of how the three American teams can get, at least, one of the spots for London at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying tournament (OQT), starting next week.

And I was also thinking about which players would the coaches from Argentina and Brazil choose from the teams that played in Chaco.

First of all, the Dominican Republic were the big winners of these two tournaments.

With coach John Calipari back on the team, with Al Horford fully recovered and with an unstoppable Jack Michael Martínez, DR surprised many as they beat the hosts and favourites, Puerto Rico, in the Final.

Not only that. After a whole year of doubts and injuries, the team was able to demonstrate it still keeps the chemistry it showed at the 2011 FIBA Americas Championship.

It's unsure yet whether the fact that Charlie Villanueva withdrew from playing with the national team this season can be good or not. But it wouldn't be a surprise if that's the case.

Immediately after the Centrobasket was over, the Dominicans lost to Angola in a friendly game which shouldn't be anything terrible, but a good example that the OQT will be probably one of the hardest competitions the team has ever played.

Despite their loss to DR in the Final, Puerto Rico still remain the best American card to win one of the three spots that were all for European teams in 2008.

Carlos Arroyo and Nathan Peavy joined the team after the Centrobasket and are now ready for the action. If they can play as a team, rebound and be patient on offense, Puerto Rico can beat both Greece (in Group A) or Lithuania (in the Quarter-Finals) to get close to playing in an Olympic Games for the first time since they did in Athens, eight years ago.

Therefore, there's nothing to worry about for Puerto Rico after losing the Centrobasket's final to their neighbors.

Before we analyse Venezuela's performance in the South American Championship, we must mention Jamaica's first basketball medal ever. With famous basketball names such as Jerome Jordan, Brian Grant, Weyinmi Rose, Samardo Samuels, Patrick A Ewing and others, the Islanders played like never before and outclassed Panama in the Bronze Medal Game.

Guided by Cleveland Cavaliers centre Samuels, who was helped by New York Knicks big man Jordan and a group of top level players in Europe and the Americas, Jamaica even threated Puerto Rico in the Semi-Finals. As they finished in the top four, they will make their first appearance in next year's FIBA Americas.

We will have time to write about Jamaica and their improvements.

Venezuela were the team that disappointed me the most in last week's tournaments.

With almost their full team, they weren't able to beat a young Argentina roster in either of the two contests they played. And to make it worse, they showed a very bad level in the final game.

Again, nothing to worry about, but a big alert for the tournament Venezuela will host in 2-8 July.

Coach Eric Musselman will now join the team and probably help with many things.

Argentina won the tournament thanks to a respectable generation of young guards helped by the presence of experienced Leo and Juan Gutiérrez.




Both Facundo Campazzo and Nicolás Laprovittola did what they had to in order to earn one of the remaining places in the Olympic squad as a guard. Pablo Prigioni has his ticket ensured and one of the two 21-year-old players will join him.

Finally, Brazil were the team that cared the least about the tournament, while the Olympic players were already gathered and thinking about London.

On the right path

The huge moment has arrived for Venezuelan basketball.

The country is hosting the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) in Caracas, with the 12-team event tipping off on Monday.

Three places for the London Games are there for the taking.

Forget the fact that Venezuela, who finished fifth at last year's FIBA Americas Championship, are among the underdogs.

The players expect to claim one of the Olympic berths and the Venezuela fans expect them to as well.

With expectations comes pressure and sometimes, there’s too much pressure.

In a friendly game against the Dominican Republic on Thursday night, Venezuela’s most famous player, New Orleans Hornets guard Greivis Vazquez, hit a three-ball to send the game to overtime.

But the Venezuelans, who are coached by Eric Musselman, then lost, 88-84.

Vazquez was just three of 14 from three-point range and he also had five turnovers.

It was friendly game, a warm-up.

But the sense of urgency is there for all to see.

Venezuela’s players are hustling and diving for loose balls.

They’re fighting against very good teams.

The players know they need to start turning on all cylinders if they are to realize the aim of London.

“There were bad decisions taken (against the Dominican Republic), including by me,” Vazquez said.

“But this defeat serves as a learning curve.

“We must turn the page and continue to work.

“The important game is on Monday.

“People have to lower the pressure.”

Venezuela were due to take on Korea on Saturday before opening the OQT against Nigeria on Monday.

The best chance for the Venezuelans to reach London is to win against Nigeria and then carry the confidence of that victory to another one against Lithuania.

If Venezuela win their first two games - and that’s a big if - the self-belief would grow and the fans would have the opportunity to give the team an extra push in the clashes to follow.

More than anything at this moment, perspective is needed for Venezuelan basketball.

It’s okay to dream, but there is also reality.

Consider the FIBA Rankings: Greece (No 4), Lithuania (No 5), Russia (No 11), Angola (No 15), Puerto Rico (No 16), New Zealand (No 18) and Nigeria (No 21) are ranked higher than Venezuela, who are 22nd.

The Greeks, Russians and Lithuanians all played at the Beijing Games and would appear to be the favorites to qualify, although The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) have experienced players and are still riding an emotional high after last year’s run to the Semi-Finals of the EuroBasket.

The Puerto Ricans and Dominican Republic have extremely good teams.

Venezuela want to play at the Olympics.

But the name of the game simply cannot  just be about reaching London.

The key word that everyone must latch onto is progress.

Is this team getting better?

Of course it is.

Venezuela played not only with passion, but smarts last year in Mar del Plata at the FIBA Americas Championship.

They are growing as a team.

And that’s the message that Vazquez is screaming before the start of the OQT.

At bare minimum, the coming week should serve as a building block for the future of Venezuelan basketball, which has just once had a team at the Olympics and that was in 1992.

“Venezuelan basketball has advanced more in this year than in the last 20,” Vazquez said.

“The important thing is to be together.




“The good thing about this team now is that everyone supports one another and this is something that did not happen in the past.

“And I believe that this is a step forward.”

Title: Paulo Kennedy’s View from Downunder: I was in Caracas when I started doing the maths... Can it get any closer?

Can it get any closer?

I was sitting in the Poliedro de Caracas when I started doing the maths.

After Russia had easily dispatched of Angola to open Quarter-Final day at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament, we witnessed three absolutely cracking games, finished off by Lithuania’s last-minute escape against Puerto Rico.

As I poured back over the results I saw eight of the 16 games to that stage had been decided by 10 points or less.

Heading to the FIBA Archive I saw the corresponding tournament in Greece four years earlier just three of 19 games were so close. There was a very big gap between the haves and have nots back then.

At the Beijing Olympics the figure was only seven of 38 decided by 10 points or less, but this year it was 19 of 38 in London.

It’s a welcome trend, especially when teams like Venezuela, Tunisia, Great Britain, Nigeria, Angola and the Dominican Republic are challenging or even beating some traditional powers.

Staying power
Of course, we have seen some of the lower ranked teams challenge before – the 2006 FIBA World Championship was a sensational tournament for close games and upsets – the key is whether these countries can maintain that level of play given their comparative lack of funding.

This is where I think FIBA are on the right track in turning their focus towards strengthening national federations rather than just continental bodies.

It’s easy to have ideas though, the challenge is whether this can be translated to real results on the ground.

 I hope so, for international basketball to reach its potential we need a large number of countries competitive at the highest level, and it’s not like soccer where a lesser team can sit in their own half and play for a draw or a late goal from a set play.

About time!
Despite the closeness of the tournament I had a rare triumph with my predictions. After mixed results for the 2008 Olympics and the 2009 EuroBasket, and a very average effort in Turkey in 2010, I finally got it right.

My top four was in correct order, and had it not been for Nigeria’s horrific about face from their Caracas form the rest of the predictions would have been very close to the mark too.

It was nice to see Nigeria give France a real run for their money in the last game with Chamberlain Oguchi going off, and I hope that gives the program some impetus going forward.

After seeing such a committed unit in Venezuela, it would be a real shame if the players lost interest in the national program. There are obvious things the Nigerians can work on to have a successful Afrobasket and become a dangerous opponent at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain in 2014.

Tricky business
Before their Semi-Final against Russia in Caracas I asked coach Ayo Bakare if he had any more tricks up his sleeve and he answered honestly “have I had any?”

Most observers were impressed with how Bakare managed his team in that tournament, giving them a basic structure from which to exploit their skills from ball reversals, post-ups and on-balls.

Like the imports they are in good competitions around the world, his players made tough shots when required to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

But come London opposition teams were paying them more respect and studying their tendencies, and with the buzz from Venezuela gone they simply looked impotent on offence.

A few more tricks to get some easy buckets could make the world of difference, as would some better utilisation of their athletic defence to generate more open court play.

Boom or bust?
Finally, the time is coming for assessments of how the Australians performed.

I will do a more comprehensive review in coming weeks, but the men’s tournament was a remarkable replica of the Boomers’ efforts in Beijing.

The team hit the ground walking, playing the wrong style of game for the talents they possessed. Late runs against Spain and Brazil disguised what were disappointing performances.

As in 2008 though, the second half of the tournament saw a different Boomers team, one that played the aggressive style Aussies know and love before falling respectably to the USA.

It was a tournament of two distinct halves, so I will take my time dissecting the good and the bad, of which there was plenty of both.

If you’re up for some reading on those contrasts in the meantime try this.

As for the Opals, that will take a little time too. There were a lot of expectations in Australia, leading to the bronze being viewed as a disappointment by some.




Without Penny Taylor though, third was certainly not an underachievement. The big question is not about placings, it is about how they went about it and how they can ensure the program remains amongst the elite for the next four year span.

Title: Gasol and Co look to 2014: Spain have Begun to Sshake off the Disappointment of Coming Ssecond Best to the USA

Gasol and Co look to 2014

Spain have begun to shake off the disappointment of coming second best in another title showdown at the Olympics with the United States.

They are looking to the future with optimism, hoping to strengthen their status as one of the dominant sides in international basketball.

Next year in Slovenia, the Spaniards will go after a third straight EuroBasket gold medal while the following year, Pau Gasol and Co will host the inaugural FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Formally known as the FIBA World Championship, the World Cup will have 24 teams and two sides already have their places in the tournament field.

The USA qualified as Olympic gold-medal winners and Spain have a spot reserved as the host nation.

The World Cup will be the latest major basketball event to be held in Spain.

Only five years ago, Spain staged the EuroBasket and reached the Final before being upset in a thriller by Russia.

"After the European Championship in Madrid in 2007, our enthusiasm for the World Cup is at its maximum,” Los Angeles Lakers superstar Gasol said.

“Let's see if we can win it.

"It's going to be a very special tournament and to play it at home gives us an added motivation.

“I hope that we will all arrive in good health and with a lot of will to face this new challenge."

Gasol is an internationally renowned player, one who was named the MVP of the 2006 World Championship and EuroBasket 2009.

He has also captured NBA titles with the Lakers.

Another iconic figure in the Spanish game is Juan Carlos Navarro, a long-time player at Barcelona who only one year ago was named MVP of the EuroBasket in Lithuania.

Navarro and Gasol have been lynchpins for a national team that has risen to the number two spot in the FIBA Men's Ranking.

"Our great aim is to continue to be at the top, to grow,” Navarro said.

“We are a team that is respected by everybody.

“This is our objective.

“The key is to continue to have ambition and not to settle."

Spain are much more than two players.

Another key man is Gasol’s younger brother, Marc, who played in his first NBA All-Star Game last year as a representative of the Memphis Grizzlies and has been in the national team set-up since Spain’s world title triumph in 2006.

He is an elite center in the game and will be a leading figure next year in Slovenia when the Spaniards go for a hat-trick of EuroBasket gold medals.

That tournament will be a qualifying event for the World Cup.

Even though Spain already have their place assured as hosts in 2014, reaching the top of the podium next summer in Ljubljana will be an aim.

“A European Championship is sufficiently important,” he said.

“We don't need any more motivation.

“It will be complicated, difficult and long but it would not be any other way.”

One of the players who played a vital role in the Americans’ 2010 world title win in Istanbul, Eric Gordon, was hurt for much of the last NBA season and did not make the final cut for the USA Olympic team.

Gordon will try to return to the squad in time for the World Cup, and he has an idea of which team will be the biggest hurdle to clear for the USA.

“Spain is the only team with the potential to beat us,” Gordon said in Bilbao this week, where he was promoting an NBA event.


“In my country, the World Cup is growing in importance and we’ll keep working with the aim of winning. We will have a great team.”

Title: Towards 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup The FIBA Americas Championship Draw has Spoken by Martìn Seldes, Buenos Aires
Post by: Coach E Smith on Mar 11, 2013, 11:54:54 PM
Torneos & Eventos de Baloncesto del Mundo Hispano • Basketball Tournaments, Events & News from the Hispanic World

The FIBA Americas Championship draw has spoken

As you may or may not know, the most interesting things to write about are always the national teams. And, even better is writing about competitions that involve national teams.

On Thursday, a beautiful theatre in Caracas was the venue for the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship draw that allows us to start analysing each team’s possibilities to make it directly to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

The draw has spoken. But it’s only the draw.

In a tournament in which the eight best teams will play against each other, the draw is something relative.

Anyway, these are the groups.
Group A - Uruguay, Puerto Rico, Canada, Jamaica, Brazil.
Group B - Mexico, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Paraguay, Argentina.

After a quick glance and with six months to go, we can divide the teams in four tiers.

Argentina, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Venezuela will have the pressure of fighting it out for the top four places - with automatic berths to the 2014 World Cup in Spain at stake - but we can add Canada and Jamaica as those tough teams that will fight for one of the four spots too.

In a third tier, we should place Uruguay and Mexico and the team that will go to Caracas as the Cinderella story will be Paraguay.

Actually, the host team Venezuela decided to be in Group B only after hearing that Paraguay would be there.

If Javier Martínez - a very good Paraguayan point guard who plays in the Argentine league - reads this, he could get angry and then use it as a motivation to avoid the last place of Group B. We hope so.

If we compare the past FIBA Americas Championships with this one, we can see that in Mar del Plata there were only four (maybe five) teams that could fight for the top spots.


In Caracas, we will see at least seven (plus any underdog) teams that will fight for the big prize.
Let’s see.

The Dominican Republic will walk behind the amazing Al Horford as much as Venezuela will do it with Greivis Vasquez. The two are having such a great season with their NBA teams that is very likely they will prevail in Caracas as well.  Photgraph Diario Antillano

Mexico and Paraguay should fight for the fourth place in Group B and it’s really hard to think that they will make it to Spain 2014.

All the other teams in the same group will try to get as many wins as they can in order to collect more points before they play the other group’s teams.

Group A is going to be tough. We could say Uruguay will need everything from Martín Osimani, Esteban Batista and Co. in order to advance to the second round.

Canada and Jamaica are two teams that could hardly go for the title but they can win any game.

Steve Nash’s turn as General Manager should change the team’s mentality together with the training camps they’ve been doing in the last year. Canada also have Jay Triano as the head coach of a young and very talented team.

Jamaica have a couple of guys who have been playing in the NBA in the past few years. They play fast, their athleticism is far better than most of the other teams and their legs can stand 10 games in 12 days.

That’s something to think about. I haven’t seen many tournaments in which a team has to play 10 games in 12 days. It’s true that the most important games are the first eight (in nine days) but you need more than good players to clinch the goal. You need great legs or rotation.

Puerto Rico have a great chance to make everything happen this year. As coach Flor Melendez said, they’ve had a big progress in the past two years as they’ve added some new players to their classics.

"Some of our guys have been playing internationally and we hope we can count on them this year," he said.

The Dominican Republic will walk behind the amazing Al Horford as much as Venezuela will do it with Greivis Vasquez. The two are having such a great season with their NBA teams that is very likely they will prevail in Caracas as well. However, neither of the two should be enough. Both teams are looking for a head coach and their teammates should do more than what they did in 2011 and 2012.

Argentina and Brazil will have to deal with big absences such as Manu Ginobili for the defending champions and the pair of Anderson Varejao and Leandrinho Barbosa for the runners-up last time around.

Even if more players join those stars and take holidays during those days, the two South American teams remain the biggest title contenders.

Caracas will be organising the second tournament in two years and that means that it has to be as good as it was last year or even better.

And everything should be close to perfection, if Venezuela hopes to become a candidate to organise the 2019 World Cup.


The draw was only a draw. But in our heads, the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship has already begun.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: How and why was Flor Melendez fired as Puerto Rico's coach ? By Martín Seldes
Post by: ESB Mario Sebastia on Jul 28, 2013, 12:07:14 AM
Torneos & Eventos de Baloncesto del Mundo Hispano • Basketball Tournaments, Events & News from the Hispanic World

How and why was Flor Melendez fired
as Puerto Rico's coach?

Martín Seldes' Brave New World
How and why does a coach who has been there for the past two years and produced good results find himself leaving his position only a week before the national team gets together to prepare for the most important tournament of the year?

Flor Melendez has always been there. If he has failed - and sometimes he has - it's definitively not the time to change him and put someone else in charge.
Paco Olmos, a Spaniard who has been coaching in Puerto Rico's national league for less than a year, will take his place.

How did this happen?

Puerto Rico National Basketball Federation President Carlos Beltran decided to change coaches because he can. I'm sure he has his reasons as Flor has made lots of mistakes during his stay as Puerto Rico's national team coach. But he decided it late and in a strange way.

The two are friends, but apparently Melendez himself didn't know what Beltran did until the same morning when we all found it out.

"I think the team needs a different structure for this new Olympic cicle. The teams needs a change," said Beltran.

That's absolutely fine. But what did it change in the past few weeks to fire a coach just a week before the beginning of a new season.

"I've seen Olmos working in Puerto Rico, how he gives everything everyday, his passion, he comes from an important league with a winning culture. He knows our basketball and our approach to him was quite easy," added Beltran.

Please, Refresh this Page Once to Load all the Previews, Photographs or the Videos !

 

In other words, Beltran decided to hire Olmos before he fired Melendez.

Melendez played for Puerto Rico and was a member of their 1968 Olympic team in Mexico.

A long-time coach in the Puerto Rican top flight, he also walked the sidelines as the boss of the country's women's national team.

He was an assistant coach to Julio Toro nine years ago when Puerto Rico’s men played at the 2004 Olympics and upset the United States on the opening day of the tournament.

Melendez deserved something better than just a call saying that he was out.

Once it's clear how bad the move was made, it's time to say that the arrival of Olmos can help.

He was a champion in Spain a decade ago and his mind could make a team - that always has the talent - defend more and play more as a team.

Actually, those were his first words after the announcement.

"Besides those two things (defense and team play), I want to help them to feel how important is playing for their country. It's quite common to look at the NBA in Puerto Rico but when you play in FIBA basketball you need to play as a team," said Olmos.

Once it's clear he's a good coach, we could also ask ourselves why didn't they choose a Puerto Rican like Eddie Cassiano, who had a great season as a coach.

What is done, is done.

Olmos' debut will be playing at home (22-26 August) in the Tuto Marchand Cup and after that the FIBA Americas Championship will be held in Caracas, Venezuela, starting on 30 August.


Now Flor is gone and Olmos is in. The best thing for fans now is to see Puerto Rico playing at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup - with or without Flor.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: "What's all this fuss about leagues?" The reason is that they are really important
Post by: BGA J.J. Diaz on Nov 17, 2013, 05:03:47 AM
Torneos & Eventos de Baloncesto del Mundo Hispano • Basketball Tournaments, Events & News from the Hispanic World

"What's all this fuss about leagues?"
The reason is that they are really important !

William Rosario's Somewhere in the Americas
Someone, a good guy, a real basketball guy, posed this question to me in the midst of the Intercontinental Cup, a two-day event that pitted the Euroleague champions (Olympiacos of Greece) against the champions of the FIBA Americas League (Pinheiros of Brazil), for the first time in 17 years.

And I know why he asked. He saw all the work being put into making this a world class event and wondered, like all regular and basketball 'philosophers' do, what was the purpose of it all.
So, on this particular day, this particular philosophical query came my way - "What's all this fuss about leagues?"

I took it, thought about it and drew a blank. I had no answer for the guy other than "well, what kind of question is that? Because they are important. All this fuss about them is that they are really important."

The conversation ended there, of course, because of my vague and dry response. But there's a more articulate answer.

Now don't get me wrong. There's nothing more beautiful and exciting than a national team tournament. Watching the best players from each country defending their colors by leaving everything out on the court is a wonderful thing. It is patriotism that at its best, is basketball when you strip it down to the core where all of it is about just one thing: passion.

But, how do you get there? How do you develop players to be up at the level required by a national team tournament?

This is where the national leagues come into play.

Prior to the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship there was a lot of talk from journalists and 'experts' outside of Argentina about how the dominance from the South American and number 3 ranked country in the world would end this year. No more Manu Ginobili, Andres Nocioni, Fabricio Oberto, Carlos Delfino or Pablo Prigioni meant they would disappear off the map, and that's a more than fair opinion...if you were not paying attention to their national league.

If you were, as I was from having watched the professional teams from Argentina up close on both the South American and FIBA Americas League, then you knew they were definitely going to be in contention for one of the four spots for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup that were awarded in Caracas. They are just doing things the right way.

"Tell me what's your plan in terms of education for your children", said FIBA Americas Secretary General Alberto Garcia to a journalist in a press conference in Mexico. "Do you take them to school two months out of the year? And then 10 months of vacation? No, you do it the other way around because it works that way."

"Now, in school, do they give them tests every single day? Or do they learn, learn, learn and then go and take tests on what they were taught?" he continued. "Basketball needs to be treated the same way."

I could not agree more. And this is the way things are done in Argentina.


Eulis Benjamin Baez (born March 18, 1982 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic), looking here one portion of pizza after a game, is a basketball player who currently belongs to the staff of the Gran Canaria Basketball Club who play in the ACB.

They have a national league that runs from September through to May (nine months), with two games per week, leaving the rest of the days off for practice. Yes, practice.

These coaches and players, who have climbed up the different divisions of professional basketball in the country, have time to go over their fundamentals and it shows. I have seen starless Argentinean basketball teams manhandle teams from other countries with huge budgets and recognizable names on the back of their jerseys.

Why? They know how to play the game.

How did they learn to play the game? They have a more consistent workshop. They have a solid national league. A league that has not only developed today's stars, but also elite international coaches like Ruben Magnano, Sergio Hernandez and Julio Lamas, among others.

How does all of this national activity translate to international success? Well, here's where I go back to the question asked by the basketball 'philosopher'. Those players, those young players that made a splash this year in Caracas had played in the international stage before. These cats are no strangers to the bright lights.

Facundo Campazzo, Marcos Mata, Selem Safar, Nicolas Laprovittola and Adrian Boccia had all played South American and FIBA Americas Leagues. They had played against Brazilian, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Uruguayan, Venezuelan and Dominican teams. They had matched up against other types of basketball styles and won (Campazzo and Mata won the 2009 FIBA Americas League, and Argentina's teams won 3 of the first 4 editions).

And their 'doing things the right way' has helped others too. The best thing about these international leagues is that their methods to success have been contagious. Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela have all followed suit.

In Mexico, the darling of this year's continental championship, the national league has been reformed. It assimilated the international calendar, while lengthening the schedule (they started in October this year) and shortening the load of games during the week.

Also, their involvement in international leagues have been key for them. Nine of the 12 players on the Caracas roster had played the FIBA Americas League before, including the MVP of the tournament, Gustavo Ayon. In fact, five players won it with Pioneros de Quintana Roo two years ago.

Brazil has been revolutionary. With a national league that is even younger (just five seasons) than the FIBA Americas league, they are an economically solid venture with huge participation from states across the board, as well as great TV exposure and fan participation. They play under international calendar, with eight-nine months of competition.

Coaching was their Achilles heel but they have begun to fix that with their great economic structure. Big names are being imported such as Sergio Hernandez from Argentina, who now coaches Brasilia. Young players will develop, that is a lock. They go to school now for the right amount of time, now under the right personnel, great and proven teachers. These year might have been disastrous for Brazil in Caracas, but it won't happen again and you can count on that.

The only exceptions are both Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. Both of them have three-month competitions, out of international calendar, with four and even five games a week.

Why are they doing so well on the international level? Can this work? Maybe. But take a look at this names:

Puerto Rico: JJ Barea (NBA), Carlos Arroyo (Europe), Ricardo Sanchez (Argentina), Daniel Santiago (Argentina), John Holland (Spain/France)

Dominican Republic: Francisco Garcia (NBA), James Feldeine (Spain), Eulis Baez (Spain), Jack Martinez (just in 2013 played in Argentina, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico).

What do they have in common? They have developed or currently make their living in leagues that do it right. Leagues that allow them to constantly work at mastering their craft.

The same with coaches. The top five coaches this year in Caracas were: Sergio Valdeolmillos (Spain), Paco Olmos (Spain), Sergio Lamas (Argentina), Orlando Antigua (NCAA) and Nestor 'Che' Garcia (Argentina).

So, what's all this fuss about leagues?

Well, when a national league is good, it develops fundamentally sound coaches and players, and when an International League is solid, it gives them a platform in which they can learn what it is to represent a country, so that when they arrive at the big stage, they are ready and prepared for their opportunity to shine.

You know, it was a vague and dry answer after all...but I stand by it.


Because they are important. All this fuss about leagues is that they are really important.
