Benzing having a tough first half, with 20% 2 pt. shooting ...:(

Edited to add: Just like that, Benzing is up to 42.8% shooting.

Elias with 9 pts from 4/6 shooting, 2 BS. Oh, oh. Just had his second TO and second foul. Oops. Four TO's. Maybe time to sit down a while?

Tied with 10 seconds left!

Dangit! Serbia wins by 2 points. Another heartbreaker, after a Harris Defensive Rbd, followed by a Harris assist to tie the game.

Rats!

Serbia wins on a layup with one second left!

Harris finished with 24 pts. and 5 boards. The one assist he had tied the game with under 10 seconds left.

Tremendously efficient scoring by Elias, but yet another high TO # by a future Zag. There'll definitely be some growing pains next years as guys like Elias, Manny, and Kelly gain some experience, but hopefully have some experience in the starting backcourt will help ease that transition.

Harris almost won the game for Germany. He scored 7 points in the final 1:24 (including a 3 pointer). He had a huge steal with under a minute left. He also pulled down a defensive rebound with 10 seconds left, drove the length of the floor and dished out the assist that tied the game at 77.

Here is Elias' Fiba profile page (http://www.fibaeurope.com/Default.asp?cid={5179A822-D4B1-4476-AD04-EDBC445D6DC6}&teamID=288&compID={792A6AB7-C6A6-434B-BEA5-9BF1BC619DB4}&season=2008&roundID=6623&playerID=53063), showing his accumulated stats. There are photos on that page, but they appear to all be from the 2008 season.

Some of those photos are from Elias' U16 days.

The big hole Germany put themselves in early really doomed them. A tough loss. Ukraine is tomorrow and they're real good.

Nice offense by our man.

Did anyone watch the game? Who does he remind you of, as in Gray reminds us of Ray Allen.

It shows great attitude that he continued to play hard following turnover problems, and possible foul troubles.
