For anyone wanting to scout the opponent, there they are. They're much more threatening than the DR, this should be a competitive basketball game, though the US should pull away in the second half. USA has much more depth.

Tomorrow with show us if being an undersized team will prove to be a struggle for us against Spain.

Keep an eye on the rebounding column tomorrow.

Also it's a double-header

UCONN, I mean team USA (women) play Brazil at 5:30.

Brazil is starting the game well. This a team that finished 9th in the FIBA championships just two years back. The international game is continuously getting better. This PG on Brazil looks like he could play in the NBA.

I think Andre Iguodala is one of the most underrated players in the NBA and I believe he is an excellent addition to the US National Team. If MKG can turn into an Iguodala-type player than I think we will have done very well in this years draft.

Team USA needs to get out and run against these bigger teams to be successful.

Without a doubt, and they will be without the T-Wolves sensational point guard Ricky Rubio.
