USA vs. Russia Tomorrow
Greetings, folks. Been on vacation the past several days and haven't updated the blog like I normally do. Jeremy Lamb been up to anything good lately?
I kid. Lamb certainly has taken the FIBA U-19 World Championships by storm over the past few days, with 60 points in the last two games. Despite an 87-85 loss to Croatia on Wednesday, the Americans secured the top seed for Group F and begin medal round quarterfinals on Friday agaisnt Russia at 9:45 a.m. EST in Riga, Latvia. Get past the Russians and Team USA could face fellow gold medal favorite Lithuania in the semifinals on Saturday.
In this (somewhat belated) link there's a video of Lamb and USA coach Paul Hewitt talking about Wednesday's loss to Croatia.
We'll have timely updates the rest of the way, I promise.
