Brazil beat the Dominican Republic 81-68 on the first day of the FIBA Americas Tournament. Al Horford had five points (on four shots) and seven rebounds before fouling out* in just 18 minutes of play.
With two points for a win, one for a loss, and four of five teams from the group advancing to the quarterfinal, the result is far from a campaign killer. The Dominican team is back in action at 1:30pm EDT, live on ESPN360.
*I imagine Mike Woodson's giving the boxscore the once-over and shaking his head in disgust.
