RIO DE JANEIRO -- Argentinas players locked arms and danced in a circle near midcourt. In the stands, their fans were just warming up.Dressed in blue and white, they sang, shouted and even cried together. This was an Olympic moment to savor.Beating Brazil, on its home court, is as good as it gets for Argentina.Facundo Campazzo made two 3-pointers to open the second overtime and three free throws in the final minute, leading Argentina to a thrilling 111-107 win Saturday over Brazil in a mens basketball game that had it all.The matchup between South American neighbors and bitter rivals didnt disappoint as the teams went back and forth for 50 exhausting minutes, trading leads, baskets and big moments.We wanted it to be a big basketball party, and it was, said Argentina captain Luis Scola. We had to win, somebody has to win, somebody has to lose, but I think people enjoyed. It was quite a show.Argentina forward Andres Nocioni made a 3-pointer that tantalizingly sambaed on the rim before dropping with 3.8 seconds left to force the first overtime. Brazils Leandro Barbosa went on a blurring, nine-point scoring binge in the second overtime, and Manu Ginobili, Argentinas balding, beloved basketball icon, came up with a big offensive rebound in the final seconds and made two free throws to seal a win that adds to his legacy as one of his countrys Golden Generation.Unbelievable game, said Ginobili, a four-time NBA champion with the San Antonio Spurs. The rivalry is amazing, but sometimes it doesnt mean that the games are like this. Today was ridiculous.When the final horn sounded, Ginobili hugged Scola and they wrapped their arms around the 5-foot-11 Campazzo, who buzzed around the floor like a hummingbird. The two-time Olympian finished with 33 points, 11 assists, four rebounds and four steals. He may not always make the smart play, but the 25-year-old Campazzo made more big ones than any other player.I do want to kill him a lot of times, Scola said playfully. I think everybody does.Nocioni, who played five seasons with the Chicago Bulls, finished with 37 points for Argentina, which improved to 3-1 in the tournaments brutal Group B, which includes Spain, Lithuania and Croatia.The Argentines have their sights on a medal to go with their gold from Athens in 2004 and bronze from Beijing four years later.Nene scored 24 with 11 rebounds to lead Brazil, which fell to 1-3 and isnt assured of advancing to the quarterfinals.Down by eight late in the fourth quarter, Argentina rallied and tied it when Nocioni launched a 3 from the left corner that hit the rim, bounced off the backboard and touched the rim two more times before falling through. Nene went up to try to swat the ball off the rim -- legal in international competition -- but the NBA players delayed reaction cost him.Brazil appeared to have control in overtime, taking a 94-88 lead with less than three minutes left, but Campazzo scored twice and Nocioni hit one of his eight 3s as the Argentines pushed it to a second extra session.Argentina went up by seven early in the second overtime, but Barbosa brought Brazil back and pulled the hosts within 109-107.Guard Carlos Delfino could have put the game away but missed both free throws with three seconds left. Ginobili, though, bailed him out by running down the loose ball before he was fouled.It was a double-dose of defeat for Brazil on Saturday as their women were beaten 79-76 in two overtimes by Turkey.Olympic officials beefed up security on the Olympic Park in preparation for the game pitting bordering countries that share a passion for sports but have been at odds for centuries.In hopes of keeping their fans from fighting, Scola and Brazil captain Marcelo Huertas addressed the crowd before the game, urging them to respect one another.Scola didnt want an ugly, violent scene like the ones that have plagued soccer matches.Its not the place for that, he said. Its a place for families, a place for friends. Its a place to have fun, and we wanted to just stop it. Obviously we cant stop it, but we tried to encourage people to have fun. We want them to come. We want them to scream, jump, celebrate, cry if they want to.For more than two hours, thats what they did. Cheap Chile Soccer Jerseys .

Womens Chile Jerseys . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. Creighton is set for its first true road game Wednesday, but the Bluejays dont have to stray far from home for their initial challenge in a hostile environment.The 10th-ranked Bluejays will travel just under 60 miles west on Interstate 80 to play in-state rival Nebraska at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln.It is the first time in program history that Creighton is a Top 10 team in either poll in consecutive weeks. The Bluejays (8-0) remained No. 10 in the Associated Press poll while moving from No. 12 to No. 10 in the USA Today coaches poll Monday.The annual showdown for bragging rights has been lopsided in Creightons favor in recent seasons, and Bluejays coach Greg McDermott has never lost a game to a Tim Miles-coached team.Bluejays guard Khyri Thomas, a sophomore from Omaha, said the Creighton coaches are more into the rivalry aspect than he is.Now that Im at Creighton, its starting to become a big deal, Thomas said. Last year I got a little taste of it, but this year were going there. The coaches are always amped up about it, so I guess I have to get amped up as well.Its just another game. Im ready to play, get the win and on to the next game.While the Bluejays played three games away from CenturyLink Center, all of those were at a neutral site in the Virgin Islands. McDermott expects to know much more about the Jays by the time the game ends late Wednesday night.I wish we would have had one other true road game before to get out feet wet, but were going to go into the fire right away, McDermott said. Im going to learn a lot about our team on Wednesday, whether we can go into an environment like that, where its loud and there are plenty of distractions because of the energy and the crowd. We have to be able to focus our way through it.Nebraska (5-3) took an 11-point loss to No. 2 UCLA at Paauley Pavilion and a two-point setback to Clemson in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.dddddddddddd McDermott said Miles has the Huskers on the right track.Hes got them playing well, McDermott said. Theyve got a couple of near-misses against some really good teams.Two Huskers specifically mentioned by McDermott as having good starts to the season were Glynn Watson Jr. and Tai Webster. Those pair are averaging a combined 30.7 points per game, with Webster setting the pace at 16.9.How the two teams get things done on offense and defense are vastly different. Creighton is the only team in the country that is shooting better than 50 percent from the field in all its games, and the Bluejays average 90.2 points per game.The Huskers are making shots at a clip of 42.5 percent through their first eight games while averaging 69.1 points per outing. Nebraska is giving up 62.5 points per game, while Creighton surrenders 73.9 each time out.McDermott said the Huskers arent a team the Bluejays can take lightly. He noted that none of Creightons current starters have played in the rivalry game in Lincoln.Theyre playing with a lot more confidence, McDermott said. Nebraskas a very capable basketball team, and were going to have to have our A game if we going to go in there and expect to win.The Wednesday contest begins a rough week for Nebraska, which plays at No. 3 Kansas on Saturday.Its a big week for us to come prepared and play our game and execute what Coach Miles wants us to do, Watson told huskers.com. Its big. Its a chance for us to show our game and show that we can play with the best teams, also. Its big, but weve got to prepare and execute whatever weve got to do to get the W.
