Heading to Paris! Puerto Rico defeats Lithuania in the Olympic Repechage final and will return to men’s basketball at the Olympics

The Olympic dream came true again at home, ending a long drought.

Jose Alvarado scored 23 points and the National Basketball Team men’s team achieved the emotional goal of advancing to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games with an inspiring victory, 79-68, against Lithuania in a packed Jose Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan.

The national quintet won the Olympic Repechage undefeated (4-0), recording huge victories against European powers such as Italy last Thursday (80-69) and on Sunday against the Lithuanians, who had a perfect 4-0 record in their history against the hosts.

The qualification of Nelson Colon’s pupils was achieved 21 years after the National Team qualified for Athens 2004 by defeating Canada in the final of the Americas Pre-Olympic Games that was played at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in 2003.
