The National Team was forceful against Bolivia at the end of the group stage. 4 players scored in double digits. Semifinal tomorrow against Brazil for a place in the FIBA Americas U16.
Argentina is the sensation delegation of the contest. Long months of dedication and commitment to the training categories are paying off on the other side of the mountain range. The National Team swept Bolivia 79-36 and claimed first place in Group A undefeated. Tomorrow, starting at 6:00 p.m., the superclassic of the Americas will be reissued for a place in the final and one of the three tickets to next year’s FIBA Americas U16.
It was the perfect and dream match for the group. There were no nerves, failures or mistakes. The dedication and sacrifice of the team excites an entire nation. Argentina maintained the tenacity of the last games to bring out its best version so far in the tournament. He managed the game to his liking against a disjointed rival looking for answers on his bench, a team blurred in relation to his previous presentations. At that time, there were no successful solutions to neutralize the blue and white ambition. The squad imposed entry conditions, attacked with outlandish plays and crowned the first half with an impeccable partial of 49 to 18.
The return of the changing rooms did not alter this auspicious panorama. He kept the ball in his most skilled hands while increasing the pressure on Bolivia’s exits. Of course, the goal was not only to increase the gap in the score (it reached +45), the purpose behind everything was to deepen the harmony in the group, so that they can treasure new experiences with the National Team. In this effort, the coaching staff turned to the rotation of the squad in search of resting their starters.
Four players scored in double digits, being led once again by Sol Depetris with 16 points. She was supported by Juana Barrionuevo with 12, Fiamma Solis with 11 and Martina Chover with 11. In turn, the national team finished with 7/16 in triples, 39 rebounds, 18 assists, 16 steals and forced 37 errors in the altiplano cast.
