7/30/2010

Luis Cequeira and Leonardo Mainoldi netted 17 points each while Juan Gutierrez had 14, Juan Cantero and Roman Gonzalez netted 12 each.

The Argentineans controlled the game from the start, having a more balanced attack and a defense that didn't allow a lot of liberties to the Uruguayan team who was only on front in the first minute.

The first quarter finished 21-19 in favor of Argentina as Luis Cequeira had 9 points and Leonardo Mainoldi 8.

In the second quarter Roman Gonzalez dominated the paint by scoring 10 points and the Argentineans finished on top 39-32.

The offense of Fernando Martinez kept Uruguay close, but they didn't have continuity on offense and the Argentineans took advantage of their depth to stay on top.

Mauricio Aguiar scored 24 points while Fernando Martinez and Martin Osimani had 14 each.
