I'm not going to go against former Yugoslav countries. You should know that. So, that makes Brazil go down to 4th. Razz

78-74 for us...had it totally controlled and they fell asleep in the last quarter, had to suffer. Still, winning is what matters, and well, we did.

I can't believe France beat Spain

Croatia was leading the whole first half, then we struck back and won in the end. Great game Smile

Didn't get to see Slovenia - Tunisia, but I heard we killed them. Watched the game vs US on the ship and it well, thats one terrible performance.

Today with Angola...if we don't win by over 20 I'll consider it a failure, it's bad enough that we beat two inferior teams only in the last ball

I can't believe USA almost lost to Brazil. But, I guess this isn't the USA we are used to with Lebron, Kobe, Wade, Anthony, Paul, and Howard not playing.... That team is unbeatable, just saying. Serbia is playing pretty good.

Yeah, against Germany you played sooo good Razz

And I told you about Brazil.

We barely got any rotation, can't believe we were only 5 points ahead against Angola in the 4th -_-

Serbia played a lot worse than I thought they would. Still got the win though. Smile

Spain winning was not really that big of a surprise.

I'll post the link to the bracket in this thread as well: http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fe/10/fwcm/p/brackets.html

Sucks that I didn't get to watch Serbia win. I was stuck at college all day. Hopefully they have it on espn3.com.
