Written by on August 21, 2023

Argentina’s men’s basketball team, the last team other than the U.S. to win Olympic gold, will miss the Olympics for the first time since 2000.

A Bahamas team with Deandre Ayton, Eric Gordon and Buddy Hield beat host Argentina 82-75 in a pre-2024 Olympic qualifying tournament final.

The Bahamas advances to one of four, last-chance, winner-take-all Olympic qualifying tournaments next year, likely in June.

Argentina, ranked fourth in the world, was eliminated from Olympic qualifying.

Its loss came six months after Argentina failed . . .
