LAS VEGAS (2007 FIBA Americas Championship) - Argentina remained perfect (5-0) in FIBA Americas 2007 Championship play, upending Canada 85-70 in the second game of the day at Thomas & Mack Center.

The Argentines led the entire way and Canada's cold shooting to start (25 percent from the field in the first half) never allowed them to truly get into the game.

The Canadians managed just eight points in both the first and second quarters, trailing 46-16 at the half.

Luis Scola scored a game-high 23 points for Argentina, while teammate Roman Gonzalez added an 11-point, 11-rebound effort in the victory.

Samuel Dalembert grabbed 16 rebounds and added nine points for Canada in the loss.
