MADRID Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Pas Cher , Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Hosts Spain booked their place in the quarterfinals of the FIBA Basketball World Cup on Sunday thanks to an 89-56 win over Senegal.
The Spanish, led once again by a towering display from Pau Gasol, may have struggled on three-point throws, especially in the first two quarters, but that was more than compensated by a devastating efficiency on their two-point field goals Adidas Ultra Boost Blanche Pas Cher , which the Spanish defense once again showed itself to be the most powerful in the tournament to snuff out the challenge of the Africans in front of a delighted packed house in Madrid's Palacio de Deportes.
Spain will play France in the quarterfinals after the latter defeated Croatia 69-64 in a game which took time to catch fire as defenses started out on top.
The first two quarters ended with the score 23-22 in France's favor, the lowest first half score in a World Cup game since 1968, as both sides saw themselves in the ascendency.
However, a more complete performance from the French team was enough to nullify a great display by Croatia's Bojan Bogdanovic, who netted 27 of his side's points and collected six rebounds.
The Spanish will be confident of reaching the semi-finals after a straightforward 88-62 in their penultimate game in Group A.
The United States were the first team to book their place in the quarter finals with an 86-63 win over Mexico on Saturday afternoon.
The Americans were rarely in trouble in the game played in Barcelona's Palau San Jordi Adidas Ultra Boost Femme Pas Cher , leading Mexico by a comfortable if not convincing 42-27 at halftime as both sides surrendered possession with too much ease.
The third quarter saw the USA assure the final victory as they scored 24 points to 11 by the Mexicans and with a 27 point lead that allowed them to relax in the final 10 minutes knowing that they had booked their place in the last eight.
Steph Curry was the standout player for the Americans as he hit the target with six out of his nine three-point throws, while Thompson's 15 points and 5 defensive rebounds were also important in the win as were Kenneth Faried's 8 points and 8 rebounds, most of which came in the first two quarters.
The USA will play Slovenia, whose passing game was enough to beat the power play of the Dominican Republic.
The Slovenians, who only lost to Lithuania in the group stage Adidas Ultra Boost Homme Pas Cher , got a grip of the game in the second quarter then they netted 23 points to their rivals' 10, with the Dragic brothers leading the way and with the Slovenian defense working hard in the zone, the Dominican Republic were penalized for a percentage of just 17 percent on three point throws which handicapped their attempts to get back into the game.
MELBOURNE, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- A 21-year-old Chinese student has been confirmed dead during hike in Australia's Tasmania island, according to official from the Chinese Consulate- General in Melbourne and latest local police news release.
Official from Chinese Consulate-General in Melbourne confirmed on Monday the death of the young man Adidas Ultra Boost ATR Mid Pas Cher , who studied in Melbourne, saying that they are trying to get in touch with the parents and arrange the aftermath.
Tasmania's police said that they were called to assist with medical emergencies in the Cradle Mountain National Park on Thursday evening, when a 21-year-old Chinese student died on the northern end of the Overland Track known as the cirque, located in Tasmania's Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
The deceased and two other students set out into the famous bush walking area on Thursday morning, but they encountered a sudden temperature drop when strong winds accompanied with heavy rains started to pick up soon after setout.
Police said the student fell ill and initial investigations suggest that he may have suffered from hypothermia.
Meanwhile Adidas Ultra Boost 2.0 Pas Cher , early indications are that the group was not sufficiently equipped to undertake the multi-day hike.
Inspector Kim Steven from Tasmania said that anyone considering walking in the Tasmania wilderness is encouraged to conduct research and prepare adequately as weather conditions in these areas can change very quickly.
"With the winds averaging around the 60-kilometer-an hour mark and possibly higher at times and that in combination with the heavy rain that was very persistent for a period of at least 12 or 18 hours, those conditions were quite conducive to hypothermia," he said.

It was the second death in the park on the same day Adidas Ultra Boost Noir Pas Cher , a 68-year- old man from New South Wales had a heart attack in the Marion's Lookout area.
MADRID, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- With Spain' s BBVA Primera Liga due to kick off in a week, most fans are not expecting any major surprises in the coming season in which three clubs look set to once again dominate.
Atletico Madrid' s league title last season was the first major shock Spanish football has seen in 10 years as Diego Simeone' s side were able to take advantage of Barca' s worst campaign for a decade and Real Madrid' s fixation with the Champions League to bludgeon their way to the title.
Working on much a smaller budget than the big two, Simeone was able to squeeze every drop of effort from his players, suffocating rivals and allowing Diego Costa to apply the killer blow.
Costa has gone Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Femme Pas Cher , flying the Vicente Calderon stadium to join Chelsea along with full back Felipe Luis and goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, whose seemingly eternal loan spell has now ended, however Atletico should feel content that apart from those departures the club has maintained the backbone of the side, especially defenders Joao Miranda and Diego Godin and midfielder Gabi.
Guillerme Siquiera should replace Felipe Luis well and in attack Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Homme Pas Cher , Mexican Raul Jimenez will be strong in the air, while Antoine Griezmann promises pace.
