Story
There are no words to describe how dominant Argentina was two years ago when they won the 2013 FIBA 3×3 U18 World Championships: 11 games, 11 wins and the most suffocating defense ever seen in the competition. The team led by the supremely talented Gabriel Deck conceded only six points on average from the quarter-finals to the final. Argentina showed they had a deep pool of talents when a brand new team struck bronze at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games (YOG). Once again this season, the team started from scratch but with a few eye-popping names such as Martin Fernandez, who starred for his country at the 2014 FIBA U17 (Basketball) World Championship.
