    I don't think Northern Ireland ever had their own federation...they're part of Basketball Ireland.

    There was a small article in one of the Bermudan papers about Phillips being called up by GB but it didn't say anything about his eligibility. In the meantime, this seems to be the major story in Bermuda:

    What would the world be without ginger beer - a peaceful place. All these border clashes and cold war-situations...

    the North-American Point Guard of Bauru Basketball, Larry Taylor will be declared officially able to play in olympics for Brazil this Monday..

    Brazil will play a Super 4 in Sao Carlos with Greece, New Zealand and Tunisia... we will play against United States in Las Vegas July 16th (my birth date lol)

    PG: Raul Neto, Rafael Freire Luz, Scott Machado and Vitor Benite (Nezinho Dos Santos, the old one)

    PF and C: Augusto Cesar Lima, Caio Torres, Murilo Becker (best player of our home league, but don't have international level in my opinion), Fab Melo, Paulao Prestes and Vitor Faverani (playing well last games of Valencia in ACB)

    I'm not sure if Yao Ming will fly to London for his commentary on the Chinese men's games. Maybe Yao will just stay in China and simulcast it with the game.

    I don't think anything is available on youtube, short videos taped from TV using a cell phone or something even got taken off by IOC.

    does anyone know where I can watch the highlights of these games? YouTube is doing a great job of deleting every vid

    Default A few words for the losers

    12th China (0-5)

    Erratic coaching, poor attacking systems, soft defense.

    Despite decent stats, more was expected from PF Yi Jianlian: 14.8 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.20 blocks (but a FG% of only 42.9).

    C Zhang Zhaoxu is about the same height as the better-know Nezdad Sinanovic and has similar basketball skills.

    My respects to legendary Wang Zhizhi (6.0 points, 5.2 rebounds) on his last Olympic campaign.

    MVP ‒ Swingman Wang Shipeng: 9.6 points, 13/21 (61.9%) from behind the arch.


    11th Tunisia (0-5)

    Despite losing to Nigeria, Tunisia left a better impression than their African rivals.

    Marouan Kechrid’s absence probably cost Tunisia a well-deserved win: Tunisia’s best point-guard would have been very useful against Jasikevicius and Kalnietis.

    After a poor season with Antwerp Giants, I wasn´t expecting this kind of tournament from Salah Mejri (2.16, 1986): 10.4 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.4 blocks and… 37.7 FG%. Hope to see him in a more competitive league.

    Veteran SF Amine Rzig (9.0 points, 3.0 rebounds) had a couple of good games (Nigeria, Lithuania).

    It´s intriguing why a bidding war didn’t yet break out for young power-forward Makrem Ben Romdhane: 15.0 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.8 steals.
