FIBA AmeriCup 2017 Draw Announced, USA Drawn Into Group C With Dominican Republic, Panama And Uruguay

  • Date:
    Apr 20, 2017

FIBA (International Basketball Federation) Americas today conducted the draw for the 12-nation FIBA AmeriCup 2017 (formerly known as the FIBA Americas Championship) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the USA men were drawn into preliminary round Group C and will play August 28-30 in Montevideo, Uruguay. Also in Group C are host Uruguay, as well as Dominican Republic and Panama.

Group A will play August 25-27 in Medellín, Colombia, and includes the host country Colombia, as well as Mexico, Puerto Rico and one country to be determined by FIBA. Group B, the AmeriCup’s third and final preliminary round group, will compete August 27-29 in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, and will consist of host country Argentina, as well as Canada, U.S. Virgin Islands and Venezuela.

The preliminary round group play will see each team play a round-robin format versus the other three nations in the group. Final-round host Argentina and the top finishing teams from Group A, Group B and  Group C will advance to the semifinals.

Semifinals and finals action will be played Sept. 2-3 in Córdoba, Argentina. The semifinals pairings will see C1 face B2 and B1 versus A1.

The USA AmeriCup coaching staff and players will be announced at a later date.

Featuring national teams from North America, Central America, the Caribbean and South America, the FIBA AmeriCup, which was originally known as the FIBA Americas Championship and the Tournament of the Americas, was first contested in 1980. Originally held every four years, the USA’s famed Dream Team made its debut and won the USA’s first FIBA Americas Championship in 1992. Beginning in 1993, the FIBA Americas Championship was held every two years.

The FIBA Americas Championships through 2015 also served as a qualifying tournament for the FIBA Basketball World Cup and the Olympic Games. Beginning in 2017, the AmeriCup will be played every four years (2017, 2021) and will no longer be a qualifying event for either the World Cup or the Olympics.

The USA men have collected a medal in seven of the eight FIBA Americas Championships in which they have competed, winning six gold medals (1992, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2003 and 2007), one silver medal (1989) and recording one fourth place finish (2005). The Americans own an impressive 60-10 (.857 winning percentage) all-time record in FIBA Americas action. On the four occasions (1992, 1999, 2003 and 2007) that the USA team was comprised of NBA players, the squads won gold all four times and compiled a perfect 36-0 record.
