The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship for Men was the qualifying tournament for FIBA Americas at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain. The tournament was held in Caracas, Venezuela, from August 30 to September 11, 2013. The top four teams qualified for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Mexico defeated Puerto Rico in the final to win their first title.[1]

Qualification[edit]

  • North American Sub-Zone:

Draw[edit]

The draw was held at the Catia Theatre in Caracas on February 28. This was how the teams were seeded:

 Argentina (3)
 Brazil (9)

 Puerto Rico (19)
 Dominican Republic (27)

 Mexico (32)
 Uruguay (29)

 Jamaica (83)
 Paraguay (55)

 Venezuela (24)
 Canada (26)

As hosts, Venezuela picked first the group that they played at, and their final opponent in the preliminary round.[3] Included are the last published FIBA World Rankings prior to the draw.

Format[edit]

The ten teams were split into two groups. The best four teams of each group advanced to the second round, where the teams played against the four teams from the other group; each team carried over all points earned during the first round, except for those earned in the match against the team that was eliminated. The best four teams of this group advanced to the semifinals and were qualified for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup. The United States, which won the Olympic Gold Medal in 2012, automatically qualified for the 2014 FIBA Tournament and does not have to participate as a result. Originally, Panama were supposed to compete for the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship, but was replaced by Mexico after FIBA implemented a suspension on the Panamanian Basketball Federation. Mexico was chosen as the next highest placed finisher in Panama's subcategory (COCABA) at the 2012 Centrobasket tournament.

Squads[edit]

Group B[edit]

Hosts Venezuela lost their first two games against surprising Mexico and Argentina, but managed to win two other games to advance the second round, despite having two losses in the game. The Mexican team lost their three-win streak to the Argentine basketball team, while Paraguay's poor efforts prevented them from winning a single game since their recent game in 2010.

Second round[edit]

Puerto Rico narrowly clinched their place for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup against surprising hosts Venezuela in an 85–86 thriller of an overtime match. Meanwhile, upstart Mexico also clinched their position for the World Cup from their performance, while Dominican Republic and Argentina also secured their place for the World Cup. Despite the efforts, the Canadian team were unable to put up a defensive and offensive play, thus eliminating the team for the second time since 2011. Newcomers Jamaica was also eliminated, despite winning against the Argentine team, whereas Uruguay were unable to make their debut for the Championship round, losing half of the matches throughout the Second Round.
