Argentina had it easy against Russia in their World Cup preparation game at Ningbo, China and grabbed an 85-64 victory, though at the price of losing Facundo Campazzo with an ankle injury.

Coach Sergio Hernandez commented on Campazzo’s condition after the game: “Normally these types of injuries are not diagnosed truly until a few hours have passed. I can confirm that he has a sprained right foot and that he will not play against Spain. Only that for now”, he mentioned.

Campazzo finished the game with 7 points, while Argentina was led by Gabriel Deck and Nicolas Laprovittola, who posted 17 and 16 points each.

On the other end of the court, Russia had Grigory Motovilov adding 14 points and Andrey Zubkov 13 points.
