76-75 final score. Italy almost gave it away with turnovers in the last minute allowing Arg to catch up, but Italy made 2 ft's with 3 seconds left to win.

What this means is, with Italy becoming the #2 seed in Group A, we'll either play them or Spain on Thursday.

The deal is, if Puerto Rico beats Greece in the next game, we get a rematch with Italy. If Greece wins, we'll play Pau Gasol and undefeated Spain. :o

I'll be rooting for Greece, then. I want the best, win or lose. :devil:

I'd rather get Italy, but not necessarily because they're the better matchup. We'd get a chance at revenge against them, and revenge against Lithuania in the semi's. Spain would almost certainly be waiting for us in the finals.

of course, if Argentina had won the game, they'd likely be playing US.......

Kinda makes you wonder......
