  1. Yeah…. Splitter didn’t played well , Brazil didn’t need him so much..
    Tomorrow must be an easy game…
    Brazil will need Splitter playing well against Puerto Rico, because if Brazil lose to PR probably will not go to the finals. PR is the key game.

    • I thought Splitter played well enough with limited minutes because the lead was so big third quarter, Brazil didn’t need to play him much.

      Brazil should handle Panama and I agree that beating Puerto Rico will be key for Brazil.

      Thanks everyone for the reads and comments, I really appreciate it.

  2. Splitter and Brazil took care of business early, great win. Panama looks like an easy opponent for the Brazilians we will see how it goes tomorrow.
