Patricio Garino with Argentina in Olympic qualifying

There are two good teams in this world: Chile, and whomever is beating Argentina. Alas, Patricio Garino played for neither today, scoring 4 points and getting 4 boards in 16 mins in Argentina´s 87-79 win over Chile in the semifinals of the Olympic pre-Qualification tournament. The winner of the final on Sunday (against either NBA-laden Bahamas or traditional power Uruguay) goes on to the 24-team qualifying tournament next year that will send four teams to the Paris Olympics.
Pato had foul trouble today and the low level of opposition (Chile has a guy who played for So Miss and 11 guys who are nowhere near DI-level) limited his playing time. My feed was not HD, but it looked like he has added some muscle to his biceps (along with some tatoos). I will drink pisco and take comfort in the fact that my county is not a bankrupt economic basket case with crummy vinegar sold as wine, so that puts me in a better position than Patricio and his co-nationals...

Re: Patricio Garino with Argentina in Olympic qualifying

Unless Pato takes up another sport, no Paris Olympics for Garino and Argentina after they lose to  75-82 to Bahamas. Pato played 11 mins and scored two points and three boards in the losing effort.
(Also, Panama-- Ricky Lindo and perhaps still Danilo-- dropped out of this tournment at the last second, much to the chagrin of the broadcaster which had to refund advertisers. It may be a while before Panama is allowed to participate in global tournaments again)
