12FAU18W - Argentina wins potential World Championship Qualifier
8/17/2012


Gurabo, Puerto Rico - Argentina defeated the Dominican Republic, 51-26, at the beginning of the third day of the FIBA Americas U18 Championship for women.

A 19-6 first quarter announced that the Argentine women came out focused to get the biggest win of the championship that qualified them for the FIBA World U19 next year in Lithuania.

Dominican Republic played strong, as it has throughout the tournament, but the offense of the South American quintet was too much in this game. Guided by Victoria Llorente (13 points), Juliet Armesto (12 points) and Mary Jordehuil (10 points) the Argentina squad increased its lead in the second half to earn their second victory of the tournament, 51-26.

The story of the game was the balanced offensive attack from Argentina with 18 assists in 18 made baskets, while Dominican Republic had only 2 assists in the game.

Argentina ended the first round of the championship with a 2-1 record, while the Dominican Republic concluded their participation winless but with the pride of having left everything on the court of Fernando "Rube" Hernandez de Gurabo, Puerto Rico.
