USA is up 54-43 at this point but I do not like the assist totals 7-12 in favor of Lith. Matt seems to be doing okay.

Deon Thompson is having a great game. Oh how nice it would have been to see him in a GU uni.

Matt's name shows in white, so it's hard to see, but he's #8. Doesn't look like his most exciting game.

According to Wainwright, Lithuania is the best shooting team in this tourney. Brazil has a monster frontline, and France is considered the favorite to win the whole thing.

Looks like Matt doesn't have to score to make himself useful and help the team win. Four boards in just 13 minutes, isn't bad. Minute for minute, he must be the best rebounder on the team. More than that, he is fulfilling the same role that will be expected of him this season--that is, doing all the good things expected that will help the team win. Scoring being just one component of that.
