Caboclo carries Brazil to FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2024 Latvia crown

RIGA (Latvia) – Brazil are celebrating being crowned winners of the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2024 Latvia and sealing a coveted place at Paris 2024.

They will line up at the Men’s Olympic Basketball Tournament for the 16th time after they spoiled the party in Riga for the home fans.

A stunning opening quarter which included 8 of 8 from downtown and a half-court buzzer beater gave Brazil a commanding 34-11 advantage over Latvia and they never had cause to look back.

Sailing to a memorable 94-69 success, they were powered by forward Leo Meindl with a near double-double of 21 points and 9 boards.
