USA Blog #15: Big Win
Got the morning started with a run to the Arena. I noticed an outdoor basketball court yesterday and wanted to see if I could some early morning action on the court. No chance - court was empty, but I did find a shortcut to walk to the Arena. I also noticed a soccer stadium here, so maybe I'll run the steps tomorrow?
We got a great, gutty, gritty, hard fought win over Lithuania. The crowd was nuts - there were 300 fans cheering against us. Jeremy Lamb (Georgia Stars teammate with Aloys Cabell) hit the game winner in overtime. Patrick Young had two Dwight Howard-ish dunks in the OT on No. 6 NBA pick Jonas Valanciunas.
The food in the hotel has been quite good the last two days. Tonight I had a very healthy salad, followed three hours later with pizza and of course, ICE CREAM!
I also got a chance to talk to a few of our current players today via Skype, thanks to Coach Brian Gilbert. I'm really counting on Josh Bailen and Brian to hold things down while I'm away. Thanks again guys, you're doing GREAT!
