XALAPA, Mexico -- Canadas defence made up for a sluggish offence to keep the womens basketball team undefeated at the FIBA Americas Championship. D.J. Alexander Jersey . Forward Tamara Tatham had a game-high 17 points and nine rebounds to lead Canada past Cuba 53-40 on Wednesday. Guard Kia Nurse added 13 points, four rebounds and three assists as Canada finished with a record of 4-0, good for first in Group A. Canada will play Puerto Rico from Group B in Fridays semifinals. The top three teams in Mexico earn a spot in the 2014 world tournament in Istanbul. Tatham said the team is on a roll but needs to stay focused heading into the semis. "We still want to win two more games but the biggest focus right now is to get the next one just so that verify that we will be going to worlds," she said. "You know, the teams feeling good. We worked all summer for this. This is the time and this is where it counts, and everybodys going so well. Were not holding anything back." Canada had been convincing in its first three wins of the tournament, but started slow against Cuba and trailed 17-9 after the first quarter. "It sure wasnt an offensive juggernaut tonight was it," said head coach Lisa Thomaidis. "I said at the end that it was really our toughness and our fitness that were (the difference). We just rebounded the heck out of the ball, and (Cuba) were gassed. ... "You know its so deflating. Like I said, we werent pretty at the offensive end but we got the stops and scored enough to build that lead." Canadas shooters started to find their form in the second quarter, outscoring Cuba 32-13 and taking a 32-30 lead into halftime. Canada went cold in the third with just eight points, but still managed to pad its lead. The Canadian defence held Cuba to a single basket in the quarter. Canada closed the match by winning the fourth quarter 13-8. She was pleased with the result, but Thomaidis said her teams inconsistent shooting will have to improve quickly before the games that really matter. "I wouldnt say we are super pleased. We know we are better than that," she said. "Pleased from the defensive perspective. We played tough, we played with a lot of heart, we stuck with what we know. ... The offensive end was a different story but Cuba gets a little bit of credit for that, too." Justin Britt Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Shaquill Griffin Jersey . According to bodog.ca, Cleveland moved up to grab the best odds to win the Larry OBrian trophy at 4-1 on Friday. By comparison, the Miami Heats odds plummeted from 3-1 favourites before LeBron left, to 50-1. http://www.seahawksfansprostore.com/Black-Bradley-McDougald-Seahawks-Jersey.html?cat=1011 . Despite 11-1 records, theyre out and Big Ten winner Ohio State is into the national semifinals.DALLAS -- Boris Diaws big third quarter wasnt enough to hold off a Dallas comeback. The San Antonio veterans decisive shot in the final minute was. Diaw hit a go-ahead 3-pointer for the last of his 17 points, Manu Ginobili scored 23 and the top-seeded Spurs held on to beat the Mavericks 93-89 in Game 4 on Monday night, pulling even in their first-round playoff series. "Youve got to give up something," said Dirk Nowitzki, who was running at Diaw as the shot was released. "That was a tough one." Just like Vince Carters buzzer-beating 3-pointer was for the Spurs two days earlier, when Dallas went up 2-1 with a one-point win. The difference was, the Mavericks had a chance to do something about Diaws shot after San Antonio went up 90-87 with 32 seconds remaining. Nowitzki, who had 19 points, had a putback on a missed 3 by Monta Ellis to get Dallas within 90-89 with 19 seconds to go. But the Mavericks let nearly 10 seconds run off the clock before fouling Ginobili. Ginobili missed one of the free throws, giving Ellis a chance to tie on a driving layup. Ellis, who led the Mavericks with 20 points, missed again to finish a 6-of-20 shooting night. "I had a good look at the end but it didnt go down," Ellis said. The Spurs, who led by 20 points in the third quarter, regained the home-court advantage by getting a split of two games in Dallas, matching what the eighth-seeded Mavericks did in San Antonio. Game 5 is Wednesday night in San Antonio, and the Spurs are going back tied because a bench thats been quiet this post-season outscored Dallas reserves 50-30. "We knew that we could do better," Diaw said. "We didnt play the same like we did during the regular season." Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter had double-doubles for the Spurs, with Duncan getting 14 points and 10 rebounds and Splitter adding 10 points and 12 boards. San Antonio, which led from early in the second quarter until late in the fourth, was down 83-82 when former teammate DeJuan Blair was ejected for kicking Splitter in the back of the head after getting called for a foul when he got tangled up with the San Antonio centre as both players fell to the court. Ginobili, who had five assists, madde the technical free throw for an 83-all tie, and Splitter hit both free throws on the foul for an 85-83 San Antonio lead. Germain Ifedi Jersey. Blair had a big hand in getting Dallas back in the game, scoring all 12 of his points and grabbing nine of his 11 rebounds in the second half. "Its real disappointing because with me in the game our momentum was going great and when that happened and that got me out of there, that was a big deal," said Blair, who said the kick was unintentional. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich challenged his team to play with more "nastiness" after falling behind in the series with two straight losses, and his Spurs responded in the first half. The best display was in a dominant second quarter, when the Spurs outscored the Mavericks 32-13. Kawhi Leonard intended to swat Carters driving shot into the stands. Instead, Patty Mills dived into the seats to save it, sending the Spurs on a fast break that ended with a miss by Tony Parker, who had 10 points of 5-of-14 shooting. Parkers miss didnt matter, though, because the Mavericks were in the middle of a 5-minute scoreless stretch that included eight straight misses to cap a 2-of-18 shooting spell from late in the first quarter to late in the second. Dallas shot 21 per cent in the second quarter. Diaw scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting in the third quarter, and looked like he was going to be able to hold off the Dallas surge. "Manu and Boris changed the entire game," Duncan said. "They kept us from blowing a big lead." Dallas hurt itself with missed free throws. Samuel Dalembert was 1 of 6 from the line two nights after he hit two late to get Dallas even in a back-and-forth final minute. The Mavericks were 18 of 28 from the line. NOTES: Both teams wore black socks in support of the Los Angeles Clippers as the NBA investigates racist comments that owner Donald Sterling is alleged to have made in a taped conversation. ... Dalembert had 15 rebounds but just three points. ... The Spurs improved to 25-0 on the road when leading after three quarters. They are 53-1 overall. ... Nowitzki was held under 20 points in a fourth straight playoff game for the first time since his first post-season in 2001.
