Argentina and Colombia are both looking forward to taking home the bronze medal in the FIBA South American Women's Championship after losing their semifinal games at the Domo Bolivariano on Wednesday. 

Argentina lost to arch-rival and perennial champion Brazil 57-73 while Colombia succumbed to host Venezuela 59-67.

The Argentinians actually gave the Brazilians a tough challenge in the first three quarters before losing steam in the final period where they were outscored 6-22. Star center and tournament top rebounder Gisela Vega will lead Argentina in its medal quest. The Spain-based player had 14 points and six rebounds against the Brazilians. 

For other scoring options, head coach Cristian Santander will rely on Macarena Rosset, Sthefany Thomas, Andrea Boquete and ace playmaker Melisa Gretter. 

Argentina has won a medal in every edition of the South American Championship since 1989. 

The Colombians, meanwhile, last won a medal in this competition in 2010 when they finished third in Santiago. Frontliners Mabel Martinez and Narlyn Mosquera will lead the squad in its podium quest. Martinez posted 23 points and seven rebounds against Venezuela while the 6-foot-6 Mosquera tallied 16 points and 11 boards.

Head coach Luis Miguel Cuenca will also pin his hopes on Maria Palacio, Maria Delgado, Jenifer Muñoz and Diana Prens, who had 13 points and 10 rebounds against the Venezuelans. 

Argentina and Colombia last played each other in the preliminary round of the 2014 South American Games in Chile with the former cruising to a 75-48 win. The Argentinians went on to win the gold medal while the Colombians claimed the bronze medal.
