Cuba to face USA in the Men's Basketball World Cup Americas Qualifiers

Cuba will face away USA tomorrow on the third matchday of the China 2019 FIBA Men's Basketball World Cup Americas qualifiers.

Included in Group C of the tournament, the Cuban team arrives to this tough game with two losses and no win; while United States (2-0) will try to maintain its unbeaten status.
The Caribbean squad debuted in this qualifying stage with a 66-72 away loss to Mexico; and then lost 72-95 at home against Puerto Rico.
It will be fundamental for the Cubans to counteract the accurate aim of the Americans, who although will not lineup their main figures, any of their players have a very high level and they so far rank second in three-point shots in the competition.
The 16 teams involved in the qualifiers fight for one of the seven tickets awarded to the American continent to China 2019 WC.
