U-20 : Young Argentina Scrapped Past Peru

Finally a win for Young Albiceleste but overall it wasn’t a truly a confidence performance Sergio BATISTA side. Peru took the lead as early in the 3rd minute through Luis TRUJILO from a superb free kick. Argentina did manage to find the equalizer before half time in the 25th minute courtesy of Jonathan CRISTALDO. Eduardo SALVIO got the winner in the 76th minute.

NBA News - Big Contribution, Low Outcome

Both Andres NOCIONI and Luis SCOLA had big nights but neither of which could help their team from losing. While it wasn’t a typical performance Manu GINOBILI for his team.

NOCIONI and the Chicago Bulls were defeated by the Toronto Raptors 94-114, adding another sour note in what has been a rough week for the Bulls. Chapu had 15 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists for his team coming from the bench.

“I think we lost control of the game. We gave it up, that’s it. We had the game right there, but we lost confidence,” Chapu said.

Despite scoring having a career high performance, it wasn’t meant to be a happy ending night for Luis SCOLA, as the Houston Rockets went down to the Indiana Pacers 102-107. Worse news for the Rockets was the right ankle injury on YAO Ming.

SCOLA, scored 25 points, 7 rebounds & 1 assists, said the injuries weren’t an excuse for failing to play better in the second half.

“Those are three of our main guys, probably our three main guys,” SCOLA said. “So it is tough, but that’s the way it is. Injuries are part of the game. Everybody has them.”

While San Antonio Spurs walk through the tightest rope for a win 94-91 win over the New Jersey Nets. Manu GINOBILI was disappointing by his own standard posting just 8 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists & 2 block shot. Fabricio OBERTO only had 2 rebounds.

The Detroit Pistons were hammered by the Dallas Mavericks, 91-112 with Walter HERRMANN having no points and just one rebound.

On the U-20 tournament I am not very happy with the team but i think they will qualify. Missing a couple key players is never good but I think this squad may not be as good as the previous teams. But lets see how they are with Di Santo Piatti when and if they qualify for Egypt.

Just got done watching the Barcelona-Numancia game and Barcelona put on a clinic. Messi 2 goals and a ast. He could of easily had a hattrick. Break away that the GK saved, and another break away where his chip hit the cross bar. His assist to Henry was great, nice run to lure in the defenders and Henry with a classy finish. Barcelona seem the team to beat in Europe. When everything is clicking on all cylinders then you are a unstoppable force. Game ended 4-1 and easily it could of finished 7 or 8-1.
