FIBA Americas schedule 2013: Argentina, Venezuela battle for Group B position

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Luis Scola and Argentina need a win against Venezuela on Monday to keep themselves from digging a hole in Group B play.

The FIBA Americas tournament continues on Monday with the fourth day, as teams continue pool play and try to capture an automatic berth in the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

The best game of the day is likely to come at the end of the day, when Argentina looks to make up some ground on Venezuela. After losing its opening game of the tournament to Mexico, Venezuela has since won two consecutive games despite being without an NBA player, as Sacramento Kings guard Greivis Vasquez is out of the tournament with an ankle injury.

To stay on top of Group B, Venezuela will have to make it three in a row with a victory against an Argentina team led by Luis Scola of the Indiana Pacers.

Puerto Rico, considered by many to be the favorites of the tournament, shouldn't have much of a problem keeping its winning ways going, as it is scheduled to face a winless Jamaica team.

For a small fee, all games can be streamed at

Here is Monday's full schedule:

11:30 a.m.: Dominican Republic (1-1) vs. Mexico (2-0)

2 p.m.: Jamaica (0-2) vs. Puerto Rico (2-0)

5:30 p.m.: Uruguay (1-0) vs. Brazil (0-2)

8 p.m.: Argentina (1-1) vs. Venezuela (2-1)

All times Eastern.
