It very huge task ahead for the Argentina basketball team. But the team can rely on players like Luis Schola, Facundo Campazzo and Bolmaro. However, this is tough as USA and Australia have been very impactful. They lost to USA in the exhibition game by a small margin. But they are equipped with ballistic defense. Luis Schola has provided breakthrough on both ends of the court. If they want to win, they have to work on their offense. Their chances of finishing on top of in Tokyo Olympics is high.
