Jamaica’s men basketball team will attempt to revive its slim hopes of a semi-final spot when the 2013 FIBA Americas Championships in Venezuela continues today.
Jamaica will take on Puerto Rico in a bottom-of-the-table Group 'A' clash, starting at 7 p.m.
The match will be the final preliminary round game for the teams who both suffered their third straight defeat yesterday.
Jamaica were beaten 88-82 by group leaders Puerto Rico; while Brazil lost 79-73 to Uruguay.
In the Group's other game today, second place Canada will play third place Uruguay.
There are two Group 'B' games on today. Those matches are – Paraguay against the Dominican Republic and Mexico against Argentina.
The championships will qualify the four semi-finalists to the 2014 FIBA World Championships in Spain.
Ten teams divided into two groups are contesting the championships.
