Dominican decides to advance this Sunday

To achieve its fourth appearance in a Basketball World Cup and the third in a row, the Dominican Republic will almost certainly have to obtain one of the most important victories in history.

And it is that to ensure their place without having to go through the process of points for and against, the criollos must overcome the obstacle represented by the Argentine team that is in the same predicament: a victory gives them the ticket for the World Cup and a defeat leaves him at the expense of another to achieve it.

The match will be tomorrow, Sunday, starting at 8:10 p.m. and will take place at the Islas Malvinas stadium in Mar del Plata. It goes by CDNDeportes.

Both quintets come from victories in the first part of the sixth and last qualifying window of FIBA ​​Americas.

The Dominican Republic disposed of Panama with a score of 93-67, while the Argentines beat Canada 83-72.

With Canada (10-1, Group E) and the United States (9-2, Group F) already qualified, five of the seven spots available for teams from the area remain and are contested by six countries.

The Dominican Republic and Argentina (8-3) share a place with Venezuela (8-3) in their group E. At the moment, by goal average, the positions have Venezuelans, Dominicans and Argentines in that order. In Group F, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Brazil have the same record of 7-4, but by goal average they rank that way.

The one who wins between the Dominican Republic and Argentina advances to the World Cup since they would reach nine wins, a figure that only Venezuela can match.

The loser would have to wait for one of the other three (Puerto Rico, Mexico or Brazil) to lose to cross over to the World Cup.

Hope fades a bit when you take into account that these last three countries will have more accessible rivals than the Dominican Republic or Argentina.

Venezuela receives at home a Canada already classified and that does not have its best players who participate with different teams in the NBA season.

Puerto Rico, which has just beaten Brazil as a visitor, travels to Medellín to face Colombia (3-8) which has been ruled out for a long time.

The Mexicans, on their side, will collide in Montevideo with Uruguay (5-6) that was eliminated from the contest after their defeat last Thursday against the United States.

Brazil, for its part, will act as host against the United States, which with the ticket in their pockets could relax a bit and not put all their efforts into victory.

The Argentines, who have the presence of their star point guard Facundo Campazzo, are now going to add Gabriel Deck, their main frontline player, who was not in front of the Canadians, but who flew in from Spain after not having a close game with the real Madrid.

The Dominican Republic has the advantage of having the presence of Néstor -Ché- García, who until the fourth window was the coach of the Argentine team and knows the rivals on duty perfectly.

But a victory on this occasion seems like a feat.
