Game 4 - USA 93 vs Puerto Rico 64

Puerto Rico finished second in their pool to Canada and USA finished first in our pool so today's match-up for the semifinals is set.  Game time is 7:00.

Championship Standard # 8:  INTELLIGENCE.  We take good shots.  We're aware of team fouls.  We know the scouting report.

The Routine

The USA Team is in a routine now. Breakfast, morning practice, snack, pregame meal, tape/treatments, meeting with the coaches to go over films and scouting reports. Then we load up to head to the Arena, get mobbed at the gym for photos and autographs, and sit through some of the game before us.  We play our game and get mobbed after for photos and autographs.  The players are realizing their status here as USA basketball players!
