    According to Serbian coach Zoran Todorovic, Chinese game’s officials somehow managed to make a mess of a game Serbia would’ve won under pretty much any circumstances. It's worth mentioning that Serbia's three leading players Tejic, Nenadic and Djokovic were rested, and that Vranes, Sarenac, Brkic and Topalovic have stepped in and filled the void left by the absences of the leading players mentionned above.

    Scorers for Serbia : Jovanovic 5, Brkic 9, Tejic DNP, Nenadic DNP, Veljkovic 2, Pavlovic 2, Djokovic DNP, Nikolic 4, Sarenac 16, Topalovic 8, Vranes 16, Matic 2.
    It is somewhat amazing any team would even go to China for training......

    Chinese refs? Screwing up and cheating?! nooooo......

    USA Holds Off Canada 94-86

    First of two exhibition games between the squads

    Isaac Haas scored 20 points with 11 rebounds and Team USA made 11 of its last 12 free throw attempts to defeat Team Canada 94-86 in an exhibition game in front of 3,780 fans at Carmel High School.

    The two teams are competing in the World University Games in Taipei and will wrap up a brief, two-game series on Saturday at Lafayette Jefferson High School in Lafayette, Indiana.

    Team USA jumped out to a 24-17 first-quarter lead, but trailed at the break 43-42 after Team Canada used a late second-quarter run to wipe out a 10-point American lead.

    Team USA then outscored its northern neighbor 52-43 in the second half for the eight-point victory.

    Haas led five players in double-figures with 20 points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes of action. The 7-foot, 2-inch center from Hokes Bluff, Alabama, was 8-of-9 from the field.

    Carsen Edwards added 14 points, Vincent Edwards had 13 points and nine rebounds, and P.J. Thompson and Dakota Mathias chipped in with 10 points each.

    Conor Morgan, who was Canada's National Player of the Year, led Team Canada with 23 points and 12 rebounds.

    Team USA's four seniors (Haas, V. Edwards, Thompson, Mathias) accounted for 53 of the 94 points scored.

    The Americans shot 32-of-73 (.438) from the field, 6-of-21 (.286) from deep and 24-of-32 (.750) from the free throw line. Both teams had 17 turnovers and Team USA outrebounded the Canadians 49-43

    University of Maryland, representing USA women, will play two friendlies with Chinese Taipei and Australia prior to the tournament start. Australia should be the same team currently competing at the U23/24 tournament in Japan.

    USA women (aka University of Maryland) lost a friendly with Chinese Taipei 83-73. Brianna Fraser and Kaila Charles led USA with 20 and 12 pts.
    From low quality streaming clips it appears that US team defense struggled against outside shooting from the hosts.
    Chinese Taipei usually sends competitive teams to WUG, but Maryland squad has considerably weakened since losing its two top players to the pros.

    Interesting to see how crowded are games even not involving home teams. At today's USA-ARG attendance was over 6,500.

    Taiwan loves its basketball!
    Although I must admit, while the USA would always draw a crowd, the Taiwan game immediately followed the USA game which resulted in a huge turnout. I got to the stadium at about 3 pm and it was very full even for Germany and HK. Those all day tickets defintiely help the turnout

    Game of the day for sure was Australia vs Lithuania in the men's tournament (live streamed). AUS took a solid lead that reached 18 pts in Q3, but was erased by LTU after 5' in the last quarter. Game stayed closed until the end, when Lithuanian team failed to convert the last ball possession and tie the score. Vasiljevic and Cooks best from AUS, Saulys for LTU.
    Australia beat Lithuania in the women's tournament as well, but the score resulted more close than expected.
