So, Staff USA simply were given fairly the wakeup name.
The American basketball group had its first exhibition sport Saturday night time in preparation for the approaching Tokyo Olympics. They confronted a Nigeria group that more than likely will have to’ve gotten run out of the development through the United States.
As an alternative, Nigeria beat Staff USA 90-87.
Positive, it was once an exhibition sport. Nevertheless it arguably was once essentially the most spectacular win in Nigerian basketball historical past because it got here towards an American group that featured, amongst others, Bradley Beal, Kevin Durant, Jayson Tatum and Damian Lillard.
As an alternative, they had been undressed through Gabe Vincent, a two-way participant within the Miami Warmth group, who had 21 issues, 18 of them coming off 3-pointers.
Staff USA was once embarrassed on the FIBA International Cup in 2019. They’re no longer off to significantly better of a get started two years later.
