For the first time in 35 years the Dominican Republic will be heading to the FIBA World Cup. Coach O and his team finished the second stage of group play with the record of 4-0 after they took down Uruguay this afternoon 78-68. The DR will be in action again Tuesday as they continue in the Americas tournament which is now down to the semi-finals. By reaching that stage the team automatically advances to next year’s World Cup which is held in Spain. Vargas continuing his hot summer finished with 13 points and 7 boards in today’s game.
Congrats to Coach O and our adopted second favorite national team for the big win and advancement to the World cup!
