South Carolina pass rush gets to Marquise Williams for a six-yard sack, forces field goal by Heels who lead 13-10.
Dwight Powell’s been fantastic for Canada at both tournaments. The Dallas Mavericks have to be thrilled.
Quiet quarter for Wiggins, who had 3 turnovers and was held scoreless. He did have 3 assists though. Conscious effort to get teammates going
Phil Scrubb is having some point guard issues this game.
Nice ball by Matt Flynn to Chris Owusu to cap that drive.
End of q1: @CanBball 11/18 fg. 14-4 point in paint, 13-3 fast break. Olynyk 9 pts. Leading VEN 25-15. VEN only 6/20 fg
Besides, if @Meyers Leonard is to be the future, he has to be thrown to the wolves a bit so he can develop further.
Andy Murray survives in 5 sets and the "Big Four" all remain alive. They have won 38 of the last 42 Majors.
Carrie Underwood to perform at the Belk Bowl in December.
Basically, as currently constructed, @Meyers Leonard has to start if Aminu is a starter otherwise opposing teams can pack paint/zone up.
Not just you ... great second-round find. Way more athletic than I knew ... twitter.com/peacemeuptwice…
Canada's up 25-15 after 1. Big Q for Olynyk - 9 points, 3 assists, 2 boards. Stauskas had 6, Bennett with 4
Tremendous 1Q by Canada ends with alley-oop to Powell, they lead VEN 25-15. Olynyk finding it, Stauskas finding it, Cory ditto.
Nice start for Canada 25-15 after one. Andrew Wiggins only starter not to score. Stauskas, Olynyk, Powell, Joseph, Bennett dominant.
Two nice looks from Olynyk for quasi-alley-oops. Canada up 25-15 after a Q. Kelly has 9 to lead all scorers.
All things considered, the best quarter of the week for Canada, up 25-15 on Venezuela. Olynyk with 9.
So @cathalkelly just asked me, "What is Nyack?"
Some strong handing off there by Matt Flynn on this first Jets drive.
Huge difference in time of possession: USC 16:33. UNC 6:16.
Stauskas from 3pt range in Puerto Rico tuneups: 4-for-14, first 2 games of FIBA Americas: 1-for-10, first quarter tonight: 2-for-2
I'm the dumb brother. Steve, Ben, Hugh and Tim have it all going on. twitter.com/TheSleepyMonke…
BTW - Adding more details to the deadline section of each @BBallInsiders salary page - trade deadline, draft, 10-day contracts, etc.
Dribble penetration and quick interior passing has been big for canada thus far vs VEN. Bennett, olynyk & more. CAN up 20-11; q1, 1:38
