The last remaining undefeated team in 2013 Americas Championship gets going on Thursday. Puerto Rico once again stepped up their game to another level to beat the three-time continental champion Argentina.
Argentina showed its true strength as veteran Luis Scola racked up 23 points and 8 boards in the game. But Puerto Rico was too much with Puerto Rico's Ronaldo Balkman chalking up 23 points and 6 boards in the win. On Friday, Puerto Rico will gun for its fifth win in the tourney, but another emerging team is out to make things complicated for them.
