    Background: After a scrappy game in which fortunes see-sawed continually, the United States basketball team scored an 81-79 victory over Brazil at the Panamerican Games in Cali on Tuesday (3 August). The Brazilian team had hoped to beat the U.S. team as had the Cubans the day before, but when the final whistle sounded both teams had scored 70 points.
