Senegal vs. Argentina: Live Score and Highlights for FIBA World Cup 2014

Luke Petkac@@LukePetkacFeatured ColumnistSeptember 3, 2014

Summary

To be honest, there's not all that much to say about this one. Argentina (3-1) controlled the game from the tip and cruised to an easy 81-46 victory over Senegal (2-2).

As has become routine, Luis Scola was magnificent, racking up 22 points and 14 rebounds and looking totally unguardable for most of the game. Scola was credited with just one assist, but his passing completely opened up the game for Argentina's shooters. Argentina hit 12-28 (43 percent) from outside and nearly every one of those looks was a good one.

Gorgui Dieng was the high man for Senegal, finishing with 11 points, but he shot just 4-12, and Argentina was able to frustrate him with physical defense and near-constant doubling. Just one Senegal player shot over 50 percent from the field (Hamady Ndiaye, who went 3-5), and the team as a whole shot just 33 percent total.

 

What's Next

Argentina takes on Greece (3-0), while Senegal will be squaring off against the Philippines (0-4) in a must-win game. Both contests take place Thursday, Sept. 4.
