In Pan American Team Competition
Kozoom has posted an article on its Spanish-language site declaring the United States players as favorites to win the team competition now being held as part of the Pan American Tournament. In its article "USA favorito para ganar el Panamericano por equipos" (as "US Favorite to Win in the Pan American Team Competition"), written by Randenver Reina, Kozoom indicates that the two USBA teams are the "target to beat."
Pedro Piedrabueana is teamed with Michael Kang, while Hugo Patino and Mazin Shooni form the other USBA entry. For the article, in Spanish, see http://www.kozoom.com/es/billar-carambola/news/usa-favorito-para-ganar-el-panamericano-por-equipos-1.html.
