    Default Semifinals: Russia vs. Nigeria

    Russia the consensus #1 team coming into the tournament and have lived up to it so far. Can Nigeria pull off their third straight upset?

    Russia has been the one team to live up to the hype this tournament, of course I was saying the same thing about Greece yesterday...

    I think Nigeria will make it closer than Angola manged but I think Russia will be booking a flight to London tonight.

    Russia +8

    If it'd be 2nd semifinal and I knew the outcome of our game, I'd know which team I'd support, but now... Heart says Nigeria, mind says Russia

    As for prediction, Russia IMO is more suitable than Greece or Lithuania to play against such physical team like Nigeria, so they should prevail here. probably without too much sweat with some 10-15pts

    I'm with the Russians on this one. Someone's gotta stop this team - they're ruining European basketball prestige!

    Since Russia has two things Greeks did not have yesterday(smart coach and inside game) they will win.

    Exclamation

    Russia has not yet played an opponent of the quality of Nigeria and may still be taken by surprise initially. I don't, however, think Nigeria can upset a European power for the third day in a row. Therefore, I think Russia will ultimately prevail, but it will be close.

    I don't think it will happen again for Nigeria. Not with Russia's inside game and not with the hype that Nigeria got from defeating Greece. Russians are now warned and I don't see them failing.

    Reasonably good quarter for Nigeria considering that Russia was 6/9 from three. Promising that they've been able to get the ball in to Diogu.

    Nigeria got locked down by Russia's defense much in the same way as Angola. Couple that with some great three point shooting and Russia's backing up their best team in the tournament hype.

    That was bananas dumb. Skinn had a bad tech but he had a point. He was fouled. Nigeria doesn't have a coach.
