    NIK STAUSKAS sighting .. He scored 33 points 9 boards for GRAND RAPIDS GOLD ..


    Surprised Nik did not seek out a big Euro contract as he doesn't have many high income earning years left at 28. Maybe he parlays some hot shooting into a Call up, but through 17 games he is 37% from 3 as a vet, not great. Good luck to him!

    Great effort both games. Nothing but respect for these guys.
    I wonder how much more Wiltjer could have helped this summer or any PG instead of Joseph ( I love he always plays for Canada but he was horrible ) ..

    USA lost to Mexico last night and barley won the night before. The US sends a bunch of G-League guys, it makes a difference that we get a couple of our top Euro pros like Wiltjer to really help us have an easier road to qualification. The points for and against in this format move on with you as you advance so winning by 30-40 can help with placement.

    Another decisive win.

    Wiltjer killing it. Both games.

    The sharpshooter who stays sharp.



    Credit to all these guys. I imagine it could feel like a bit of a thankless job to go out and win these qualifying games, only to have to cede their roles when the NBA guys eventually come into play.

    Canada thanks you for your efforts, gents.

    In other games ... The U.S just barely snuck by Cuba and they are on the verge of losing today against Mexico

    Second game of the back to back on today. Looking forward to seeing if Wiltjer goes of again or if Canada goes uses the gravity he creates and gets someone else going.
    It seems he is starting where he left off . 16 points in the 1st half

    Wow what a great game to watch . For a team with very little practice time they showed some amazing ball movement and wow and some great shooting .. They scored 115 points to come away with a 40 point win .

    That looks like the probable starters. Not sure how much size Bahamas has, could see Anthony Bennett in the mix. He's had a decent start to the year shooting the ball in Europe.
    I don't believe it matters what size Bahamas has. They have only like 1 guy who is decent from the Euroleague (Travis Munnings) the rest are not up to par vs Canada's top 7 players. This is not serious team who's made up of a few guys who are not even playing professional basketball no more.

    I was listening to a podcast and they mentioned Kassius Robertson and Kenny Chery are 2 players that we should expect a lot from this weekend .

    I heard that Sportsnet has the contract for all the FIBA games for the next few years. I believe that includes men's, women's, U19 etc. Maybe soccer as well. So they will all be available on TV. Really looking forward to the basketball.
