US Downs France 98-71

Maybe it was the early hour, but that was one sleepy, ragged contest. Kevin Durant scored 22. Lebron had 8 assists. Tony Parker had 10 points for the Frenchies and played with some cool space goggles. He looked like aqua-man.

There were a lot of whistles, especially in the first half, so Mike Kryzy Coach K went to his bench and came up with another handful of all-stars. The US is embarrassingly powerful and France is actually supposed to be pretty good. They might have had a chance if the US lent them LeBron and one or two other guys.

Next up is Tunisia who qualified by winning the 2011 African FIBA championship. I believe the game will take place around 2pm Pacific on Tuesday but I'm still trying to figure it out. It will probably be a slaughter.
