This year’s Intercontinental Cup comes off from February 15-17 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the Carioca 1 Arena in the iconic city.
The arena hosted basketball games during the 2016 Olympic Games won by the United States of America’s Male and Female Teams.
Ghana Center Amida Brimah is expected to play in the competition with Austin Spurs; Austin won last season’s NBA Gatorade League.
Spurs will compete against Basketball Champions League winners AEK Athens from Greece, Americas title holders San Lorenzo do Almagro from Argentina and host Flamengo.
Austin plays Flamengo while San Lorenzo takes on AEK Athens in the other semifinal game for a place in the final game on February 17.
Brimah is in his second season with Austin after graduating as University of Connecticut Captain in 2017. He led the G League in blocks last season helping Spurs clinch the title.
