The United States dominated Greece in the International Basketball Federation World Cup to advance to the second round after just two games in Manila while Spain also progressed.

Led by Austin Reaves with a team-high of 15 points the Americans were in complete control as they cruised to a 109-81 win.

The win cements their place in the Group C top two prior to a final fixture against bottom side Jordan on Wednesday (August 30).

New Zealand beat Jordan 95-87 in overtime, also at the Mall of Asia Arena, to set up an exciting finish with the winner of their match against Greece in midweek to determine the second qualifier from the pool.

"Really good effort from our guys," US head coach Steve Kerr said.

"Our thought process every game is to wear the opponent down.

"We're a 12-deep roster and we're just trying to stay solid on every possession and really put pressure on the opponent and we really needed to do that tonight because Greece played very well.

"That first half they stayed with us the whole half and as Jalen said, it's a team that's very well-coached.

"Tough, physical, we had to play very well and eventually, we broke the dam and opened up the game."

The final fixtures of the day saw Spain advance from Group G with a 96-78 triumph over Brazil while Ivory Coast pipped Iran 71-69 to eliminate them at the Indonesia Arena in Jakarta.

Competition is set to continue tomorrow with the last matches of groups A, D, E, and H.

In Group F, Cape Verde claimed their first ever World Cup win as they beat Venezuela 81-75 at the Okinawa Arena in Japan.

The tournament also marks Cape Verde's first time qualifying as they became the smallest nation to ever qualify for a World Cup as the country has a population of just under 562,000.

They face a tough task in the next fixture against Slovenia who took a second win from as many games by comfortably beating Georgia 88-67.

Serbia strolled to victory against Puerto Rico in Group B 94-77 following South Sudan's 20-point defeat of China at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City by an 89-69 scoreline.
