For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

The US couldn't hit shots, Cedi Osman and Furkan roasted them on the pick and roll and the game ended in OT when Turkey missed four consecutive FT s and then Middleton got bailed out on a foul with 2 seconds remaining and nailed them. Everyone was shook.

I was 12 when I made love for the first time, in Tropea, with a Roman girl who was 17 years old.





gotta love how Turkey can pick Scottie Wilbekin as he's naturalized but neither of the Kanter brothers due to them being members of a terrorist organization according to the Turkish federation

also I coulda told you Tatum would choke, it's the Chaminade DNA (only STL people will get this)

hate to double post, but it's time for everyone's favorite, Fun With Naturalized Players, where we see what random Yank's playing for what random country

Cote d'Ivoire: Deon Thompson. yes, a guy who refused to graduate from UNC and has been playing in Spain for years is now Ivorian, and this is actually fairly recent unlike some of the others on this list.

Poland: AJ Slaughter, mid-major notable from Western Kentucky who's been in the French league for a while

South Korea: Ricardo Ratliffe, yes the man who was part of one of the most Mizzou Mizzou teams ever, yes the one that went 30-5 and won the Big XII after agreeing to go to the SEC, got screwed out of winning the final Border War by some classic Allen Fieldhouse officiating, and shot 58% from the field in the Tournament only to lose as a 2-seed because Kyle O'Quinn and Norfolk State shot something like 800%. in conclusion, gently caress Frank Haith.

Tunisia: Michael Roll, former UCLA gunner who has played for Tunisia for a LONG time

Angola: Reggie Moore, your classic mid-major (Oral Roberts in this case) guy who inexplicably becomes a Euro journeyman--dude's been playing pro ball since '03, and in 7 countries

Italy: 2 for the price of 1, Daniel Hackett who qualifies as his mom's Italian and Jeff Brooks, who is notable because he played in one of the most abominable games of college hoops ever while at Penn State. yes, I'm talking about 36-33, and there are no bonus points if you can guess who the Nittany Lions beat.

Philippines: ANDRAY MOTHERFUCKIN' BLATCHE, who is still as Pinoy as a plate of sisig and a bottle of San Mig. (Jordan Clarkson was all set to play but FIBA still won't classify him as a "non-naturalized player" even though he's met all the benchmarks for it. racists.)

Czechia: Blake Schlib, who played at Loyola-Chicago back when Sister Jean didn't need the wheelchair

Japan: Nick Fazekas, who was part of some seriously good Nevada teams

Turkey: the aforementioned Scottie Wilbekin. Free Enes. Free Kerem.

Greece: Nick Calathes has played in the Greek setup since he was a high-schooler, he doesn't really count.

Montenegro: Derek Needham, who is so mid-major he was All-MAAC

Jordan: Dar Tucker, the last notable DePaul player

Watching Greece treat the current NBA MVP like a supercharged energy guy is pretty amazing. Even on the team photo he’s on the edge of the picture, and not in the center.

Also, Team Germany, good job.

My classes got delayed two hours so I got to watch the game today. 3 point shooting did not seem good enough even in a blowout.

The Aussies seem to be doing fine so far. Not that Australia itself cares at all because the AFL finals are on. (no media attention at all, It's all footy drama) (not like basketball got any media here in the first place)
