Argentina vs Puerto Rico Live Stream online (Group Phase) (FIBA Basketball World Cup) For 10 basketball teams, the road to the 2016 Rio Olympics begins Monday in Mexico City. The top two finishers (not counting Olympics host nation Brazil) at the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship will qualify directly for the Olympics, while the countries that finish third through fifth qualify the “last-chance” World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in July. Making things even more intriguing, the United States (winners of the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup) won’t be participating, creating even more parity throughout the tournament field.

There are four squads that enter with a legitimate chance at gold. Canada has never won this tournament, but with Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a host of NBA players, it’s arguably the most talented team. Mexico, led by Jorge Gutierrez and Gustavo Ayon, are the hosts and defending champions. Then there’s Argentina and Brazil, who will both be without superstars of years past (Manu Ginobili, Pablo Prigioni, Tiago Splitter, Leandro Barbosa, Nene, Anderson Varejao) but still have plenty of young talent and are always threats during international competition.

With the Olympics on the line, this should be a thoroughly entertaining competition. Here’s a complete look at the schedule, as well as results as they play out:
