No better team to teach you a lesson that the best team on the planet.....Although I am dissapointed by our defensive performance, this is our first ever Olympics so we still have a lot to learn. We will be back in 4 years, definitly better than now, what cant kill you will only make you stronger....*that cross on Harden though was dirty*
Ya'll will be back in four years and get smashed again, you will get better and so will we...take care. Go USA!
Just a huge day for the US. Still, I am hearing more and more Nigerians who are turning into solid prospects. One incredibly intriguing prospect is Michael Ojo, who will be a freshman (possible redshirt) at Florida State. Ojo is apparently an absolute mountain of a man at 7-1 and 290. In a column recently written by Jim Lamar of the Tallahassee Democrat, he said he made 7-3 Boris Bojanovsky (another freshman at FSU from Slovakia) look small:
Ojo was a late signee and spent this past year at Tennessee Temple (a Christian school). Coincidentally, John Reik (always thought it was Riek, though it says Reik on his Uni profile) was in a University program there (Ojo was in HS). Reik is from Sudan, but was also 7-1 and around the same weight. At one time, he was seen as a possible lottery pick. Now, not so much.
Could see history possibly repeating itself with Ojo, just think he has a body that is incredibly rare. He is apparently raw as anything, just know he is 7-1, a muscular 290 and apparently has a 7-8 wing span. He is also (supposedly) born in 1993, making him relatively young (though slightly older than most college freshmen). Not saying he will be Hakeem Olajuwon, just one I am watching intently and would love to see succeed.
Bigs are always worth tracking. Anyone with that kind of size is intruiging to say the least. Thanks for the heads up
a lot of the Nigerian players have talent and experience playing in college and a couple in the NBA. Ya'll will be back...
Thanks folks, we need to invest in our home grown talent though, its appalling at the moment, we are having to rely on 2nd generation Nigerians born in the States, even though we have that option, I would like to see more home grown talent.
Well USA have such a great offansive arsenal,they dont even need to play a hard D but they do :) I really think that no one can stop them,sccc the can hit 10-15 3 pt shots every night :)
If they had Udoh would of only lost by like 68
