2013 FIBA Americas schedule: Teams fight for positioning as group play wraps up

USA TODAY Sports

On the final day of group play at FIBA Americas, Brazil and Jamaica find themselves in an elimination game, while Canada and Uruguay battle for second place in Group A.

Brazil and Jamaica will play for their FIBA lives on Tuesday, when the two 0-3 squads face each other in a Group A elimination game on the final day of group competition at FIBA Americas.

After Tuesday, each of the eight remaining teams -- the top four in each group -- will enjoy an off day before the second round begins on Thursday. Seven of the eight second-round slots are already filled, with the last spot going to the winner of Tuesday's contest.

The other game of meaning on Tuesday's schedule is between Canada and Uruguay. Each team is 2-1 in Group A, so the winner will clinch second place behind Puerto Rico, which finished the preliminary round undefeated. Spurs guard Cory Joseph has paced Canada through the first three games, with former Texas A&M Aggie Leandro Garcia leading Uruguay.

The only two teams not playing on Tuesday will be Puerto Rico and Venezuela. Venezuela has locked up second place in Group B.

Every game will be streamed live on Livebasketball.tv.

Here is the complete schedule for Tuesday:

11:30 a.m.: Paraguay (0-3) vs. Dominican Republic (1-2)

2 p.m.: Canada (2-1) vs. Uruguay (2-1)

5:30 p.m.: Mexico (3-0) vs. Argentina (2-1)

8 p.m.: Brazil (0-3) vs. Jamaica (0-3)

All times Eastern.
