One of the best Zags ever, JP Batista is currently involved with Brazil's FIBA team in FIBA Americas.

FIBA Brazil page on the Americas site (http://www.fiba.basketball/americup/2017/Brazil#|tab=schedules_and_results)

They won today's game vs. Columbia, 76-74. (http://www.fiba.basketball/americup/2017/2508/Puerto-Rico-Mexico#tab=boxscore_statistics).

JP scored 4 points with 8 rebounds and 3 assists.

Brazil plays Mexico Saturday at 3:30, and the game can be watched on ESPN 3.

Sunday, it's Brazil vs. Puerto Rico on ESPN 3 at 1:30.

I liked this pic of JP (#13) from the game vs Columbia today:


Canada is playing in the tournament as well, but no Zags are on the roster. Kind of a surprise to me. I would have expected Pangos, Olynyk, or Sacre to be on the team ....
