Uruguay and Argentina find themselves in the battle for third place after losing their respective semifinal games in the FIBA South American Championship yesterday.

Uruguay lost to host Venezuela 62-74. Marcelo Signorelli's men led by three points after the first quarter but were outscored 13-21 in the succeeding period. The Uruguayans stayed within striking distance in the fourth period but could only trim the gap to eight points.

Leading Uruguay in its quest to win a medal are star point guard Bruno Fitipaldo and center Mathias Calfani. Also out to impress are Mauricio Aguiar, Federico Haller, Gustavo Barrera, Kiril Wachsmann and NBA and Euroleague veteran Esteban Batista. 

The Uruguayans placed fourth in this competition two years ago so they are determined to win a medal this time. 

Erstwhile unbeaten Argentina is also seeking redemption after losing to rival Brazil 82-88 in the semifinal. Nicolas Casalanguida's men led by three points with four minutes remaining but failed to sustain their momentum.

Nicolas Romano will lead Argentina in this match-up and he will get support from Gabriel Deck and Carlos Schattmann. Also expected to play quality minutes are Nicolas Brussino, Marcos Delia, Leonardo Mainoldi, Javier Saiz and Federico Aguerre.

The Argentinians have won medals in every staging of the South American Championship since 1969. 

Argentina walloped Uruguay 82-58 in the group stage with Schattmann leading the way with 13 points.
