Basketball World Championship Is Under Way
Posted by Nancy on August 30, 2010
Things are once again clicking for the United States as they compete for the Basketball World Championship. At this point in time they have a 2-0 record and seem to have a great deal of momentum. Yesterdays’ 22 point win against Slovenia added strength to their drive in showing that they are the best. Kevin Durrant was on fire and ended up with 22 points to lead the U.S. team. Tonight the U.S. will match up against Brazil (who is also 2-0 in these competitions) and then they will get a brief rest before their final couple of games in group contention.
The team who ends up winning the gold medal for this championship will be an elite group indeed as this tournament is considered as prestigious as the Olympics in the basketball world. The games of 2010 are being hosted by Turkey and will conclude on September 12
