    I don't think the games are being streamed until the 1/4 finals. Here's the stats page though:

    It's their sport. I was talking to a buddy of mine, who is Lithuanian, and it's like their National Sport. It's the ONE thing they do well. haha

    Yeah, and I don't think you can find another European country that likes basketball just as much as they do, not even Spain and Greece.

    The level how much we enjoy basketball is insane, everyone here plays it, like I mean, EVERYONE. Back when I was a kid at ~12y old I was one of the worst players in my class. Then I went to live in France for a few years, and I quickly became the basketball superstar of my new school in Paris, started participating in tournaments, etc... Now, at 18y old, I'm back in Lithuania and I'm still considered to be trash here

    We often say it is more like a religion, not a sport. It's pretty much the only thing that unites the country.

    I hope so too. Yet Sabonis was pretty much the best C in europe at 17y old.

    Ok Serbia 54-71 Lithuania, the game was pretty close especially in 3rd quarter. 18pts, 13rebs and 3blcks for JV, yet only 43% shooting (6/14). I guess he faced some decent opposition in the paint for the first time in the tournament.

    Looking forward for the rematch with USA 2:30pm local time aka 6:30am EST tomorrow.

    JV is a promising prospect but comparisons to Sabonis are premature. When his wheels were in tact, Sabonis could do it all, post up, rebound, block shots, shoot the 3, run the floor, handle the ball, pass, etc.

    RIGA (FIBA U19 World Championship) – One week ago the USA had just arrived in Europe and were given a wakeup call by Lithuania in their final preparation game for the FIBA U19 World Championship.

    One week on and the two teams are preparing to meet on Tuesday in a preview of the final that many would like – and expect – to see.

    Coming off Monday’s victory against Serbia - their fourth in as many games – the Americans have gone from major repairs to fine tuning, and USA head coach Paul Hewitt intent on looking forwards, not back.

    “You forget about what happened five days ago and worry about the next game," he said. "We played well, they played really well.”

    However, Hewitt suggested that when they are on top of their game, Lithuania are almost unplayable.

    “If we are going to have a chance we are going to have to play better. And they are going to have to play worse,” he concluded.
    Strong words from a coach whose country currently holds the title in all six FIBA World Championship categories.

    From that pic, JV has a small head or wide shoulders - I'm hoping the latter.

    wide shoulders. that's what a lot of scouts were raving about, actually. because his shoulder are so wide he'll be able to bulk up without losing a lot of mobility.

    LOL - Young misses 2 FT's with USA up by 2 with 7.3 secs remaining. LIT rebounds, push ahead, shot blocked by Young, JV off rebound and dunk, tied game with 1.7.

    OT

    Heading in to OT: JV 26/15 and 4 blocks; Young 7/6 and 1 block; both have 4 fouls.
