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. Nike Flyknit Shoes Outlet . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses.

Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. With the silliness ironed out, trainer Robbie Griffiths is hoping Capannello can start living up to his promise.The last-start Bairnsdale winner returns to city racing at Sandown on Saturday to contest a Benchmark 70 race over 1000m for three-year-olds.Capannello showed his ability on debut with a second placing in a Blue Diamond Preview at Caulfield before his two-year-old campaign went pear-shaped.While preparing for his three-year-old return, Capannello wasnt concentrating in his work and the decision was made to geld him.Capannello made his reappearance at Bairnsdale on December 13, disposing of maiden company and Griffiths is content to come to town.At his second run a horse jumped into the barriers and he lost the plot mentally and ran poorly, Griffiths said.Coming back as a three-year-old we did a full prep with him and got him up to trialling stage but he was being a clown and I said to the owners hes not going to win while hes not concentrating.You run second in a Preview and you get stars in your eyes and you leave him a colt, but the way he wass behaving wed end up with a slow colt.ddddddddddddThis way hopefully well end up with a fast gelding.While Capannello again runs over 1000m at Sandown Griffiths thinks in time the gelding will stretch out in distance.Just how far Griffiths is not sure but hes happy to keep the gelding to the shorter races at this stage.I think hell stretch but whether thats to 1200 (metres) and that pulls him up or whether he gets out to 1400 or a mile, its hard to say, Griffiths said.Weve got limited knowledge on him as weve only had him over these shorter distances but on pedigree he should do it.Griffiths says he s not getting overly ambitious with Capannello and just wants the gelding to build a profile.Now that hes gelded and racing in the off-season, well just take our time, Griffiths said.Its just one race at a time as hes still learning but if he can build a career and race his way into something in the autumn, then that will be good.
