    Tomorrows Exhibition game (07/24/12): Lithuania vs Iceland 12 ET
    Followed by: USA vs Spain at 4:30

    The later should be a very exciting game. I think USA has its work cut out for them. Spain does have a size advantage in the front-court (mainly the 4 and 5 positions), which I can see causing USA some problems down the road. It should be a fun game i guess well have to wait and see!

    I've noticed that this US team doesn't carry "invisible" status, already. Wouldn't be surprised if Spain wins.

    You mean invincible right lol
    I agree with you, watching them play Argentina made me feel that a gold medal for USA is not completely set in stone.

    Just spent the last 10 minutes trying to find the score and come up with nothing. Why is this so difficult!?

    Didn't watch the Lithuania/Iceland game.. couldn't find the box score. I believe it was a 101-51 massacre in favour of Lithuania, as shown here:

    Looking for highlights on youtube.. found the following:

    As predicted it was boring. I found a stream near the end of the 1st quarter with Lithuani 20 up (it got a bit closer later). I watched some, but the stream was bad quality and the game was boring so I stopped watching. Saw a nice slam by Valanciunas though.

    ignorant question...but is iceland even in the olympics for basketball? Lithuania had to win a play in tournament to get there against some reasonable teams. Shallow talent pool in the Nordic division?

    No, Iceland is preparing for qualification tournament to next Eurobasket championship. This just have been friendly match/training for both teams. Well at least for LT it was training as you can see in the scoreboard.

    Iceland vs. Lithuania would be similar, from a population perspective, of Canada vs. USA.

    ~320k vs. 3.2M.............................................. ................................ ~34M vs. 310M


    I think the outcome would be about the same as well. But give Canada another 5-8 years!

    Especially if the IOC/Stern make Basketball an under 23 event.
