Australia, the only undefeated team together with USA, upset Argentina in the last day of eliminations.
USA barely managed to avoid surprising loss by edging Slovenia by 3 points. It was also overtime, but Miha Fon (194-G-84) 's 3-pointer was not successful.


Group A:
Argentina - Australia 76-82 (Sandes 23+8r, Schattmann 18, Alloatti 11+9r - Markovic 20+5r, Newley 19+6r, Bruce 14)
ARG H.Coach Gonzalo García: "It is evident that the game was divided into two parts. What we didn’t do in the first half and what we did in the second. We didn’t have offensive or defensive answers to cope with this great team which has shown why it is one of the best formative teams. It is good that we left with the image we gave in the second half so that we face the following round differently"
Israel - Canada 66-78 (Halperin 22, Limonad 16 - Gallimore 24, Rautins 14, Blackwood 12)
CAN H.Coach Dave Crook: "It is better to win than to lose. We played better in the second half and our defence was stronger. It was very important to have Andrew Rautins that hadn’t played in the previous games"


Group B:
Nigeria - Puerto Rico 72-90 (Gumut 19+4r, Odiakosa 14+6r, Usman 14+7r+8a - Ramos 18+4r, Barea 17+6r+7a, Galindo 14+4r)
PUR H.Coach Carlos Calcaño "I am glad and satisfied with the effort of my team; we had a good beginning in this championship. In this round we improved our level, from the bottom to the top. I would like to congratulate Nigeria, they played well. Now, we are analyzing the next round, when we will have to play good defences and be smart in the offensive."
Lithuania - China 96-75 (Maciulis 12, Jankunas 10+6r, Kavaliauskas 10+5r, Babrauskas 10+4r - Luo 14+4r, Meng 14, Zhang 12+5r)
Lithuania controled the boards (42 rebounds) and and was better in almost every single statistical category than the Chinese. The victory was never in doubt and coach Ramunas Butautas used all 12 players of his team.
Jonas Maciulis: "We didn't play at our best, we could have done much better. China had an effective Zone defence. At least we played better in the second half"
USA - Slovenia 82-79 (Withers 15, Roberts 14+5r, Ray 12 - Zagorac 15+8r, Venta 10+5r)
USA H.Coach Phil Martelli: "In any level that basketball is played, professional or college level, not always who plays better is who wins. Today, that has happened. Slovenia had a very good performance; we did not expect a tied game like this one. His good production it will be seen in the tournament."
