Here is ESPN's take on Mexico right before the tourney started.

Quote:
Mexico failed to qualify for the Americas for a second straight time, but it was awarded a spot in the field after Panama was banned from international play this summer. But without much depth or offensive firepower, don't expect it to do much with the opportunity.

Gustavo Ayon, now an Atlanta Hawk, is a crafty player who moves well off the ball, rebounds and passes. UCLA center Lorenzo Mata is a live body who will board and challenge shots. And former Fresno State Bulldog Hector Hernandez will work as its stretch-4.

The backcourt is led by Paul Stoll, who, although 5-foot-10, is a dangerous shooter who can create shots for himself or his teammates and pester opponents on defense.

Orlando Mendez-Valdez, the 2009 Sun Belt player of the year at Western Kentucky, is a steady ballhandler with dangerous shooting ability, and Jorge Gutierrez, the 2012 Pac-12 player of the year at Cal, adds another aggressive defender on the perimeter.

I just don't know how this team is going to generate points with any consistency. With Paraguay in its first-round bracket, Mexico should advance to the second round, but it has basically no shot at a qualifying bid.

Mexico completed its unlikely run in the FIBA Americas tournament, beating Puerto Rico 91-89 in the title game on Wednesday. It was the first time Mexico has won the championship of North, Central and South America, which serves as a qualification stage for next summer’s World Cup of Basketball in Spain.

(The United States did not have to participate as champions of last year’s Olympics, earning an automatic birth to the World Cup. Mexico will participate for the first time since 1974.)

-- San Antonio Express-News Blog


Gustavo Ayón and Mexico completed their improbable run to the FIBA Americas Championship game with a 91-89 win over Puerto Rico Wednesday night.

Ayón scored 20 points and pulled down a game-high 16 rebounds to complete a magnificent individual tournament performance that crowned him MVP.

Ayón also made the all-tournament team, averaging 17.2 points and 8.4 rebounds.

I have to agree with that.
You told me about him, way before he was well known at FIBA.

OMG I can't still believe Mexico beat us. Fvcking refs. This game was rigged from the start. We had like 3 players getting fouled out because of the refs selling out. And yes I am that mad!!!!!!

But in seriously congrats to Mexico for a great game. They beat us on the inside with superior post game (and taller guys).

But I was wondering why didn't the coach put Danny Santiago earlier in the game. His experience and his 7 foot height was needed against Ayon. Heck after he came in Mata and Ayon stopped getting easy baskets because he was playing great.

Also that Arroyo erratic pass. That is why you're not on the NBA buddy
