    "Mullings tied the game at 77 and Kevin Pangos went to work from there, recording seven points and three assists in the final five minutes of the match to lead Canada to the win."


    Great to see Pangos get it done.

    Strange to see that even distribution in minutes...Triano is really working everyone in.
    Would have thought to see a more traditional distibution of minutes among starters and bench in a more meaningful game like this.

    Perhaps it was the bench that was outplaying the starters...

    Only two of U.S., Canada, and Australia will make quarters.

    Not sure what tie-breaker is if U.S. beats Canada tomorrow and they are all 4-1, with 1-1 against each other. Maybe overall point differential? Or point differential in head to head games?

    If the former, look for a very ugly score in Australia-UAE game tomorrow.

    Pangos leads the team in minutes. Suprisingly Wiltjer only has 6 minutes compared to Pangos' 21 minutes through mid-fourth quarter. Arop has zero minutes.

    Game story:
    Universiade (men’s basketball): Canada tops pool heading into clash with USA

    KAZAN, Russia (Team Canada) – A dominant second half effort lifted the Canadian men’s basketball team (4-0) over the Czech Republic (1-3) by a score of 87-56 and pushed Canada into top spot in the preliminary pool standings with one game remaining.

    That pool picture grew murkier on Thursday afternoon thanks to Australia’s 94-83 win over the United States, which left both squads with 3-1 records. Only the top two teams in the group advance to the quarter finals, meaning everything will be on the line in Friday’s Canada-USA matchup.

    The much-anticipated duel can be viewed live on www.fisu.tv at 1 p.m. Kazan time (5 a.m. ET).

    The Czechs gave Canada troubles of their own, speeding ahead to a 34-28 halftime lead with physical play and strong scoring from inside. Canada shot just 33 per cent in the first half and committed nine turnovers.

    “We weren’t quick to the ball in the first half, but the second half we were active,” explained head coach Jay Triano, who also noted that he was pleased with the defensive effort throughout the game.

    “As some teams wear down in this tournament, we’re fresh and we can run guys in and out. We bring an energy that we can be consistent with throughout a whole game. Our pressure defensively today showed that.”

    In the third quarter Canada was hustling so hard on defence that Daniel Mullings of Toronto (New Mexico State) and Kevin Pangos of Holland Landing, Ont. (Gonzaga), the team’s two scoring leaders in the game, crashed into each other trying to dive into the Czech bench to corral a loose ball.

    “That play shows we just want to win, and get every fifty-fifty ball because those balls can be the decision-maker at the end of the game,” said Mullings, who tallied 15 points and three assists. Pangos led all scorers with 17 points, his tournament high.

    Mullings was a playmaker at both ends of the floor, leading the second half charge which turned the game around. “We use our defence as our staple,” continued the 6-foot-2 guard. “Once we keyed in on their point guards and shooting guards to slow them down getting into their offence, I think that helped our offence.”

    The Canucks refused to back down in face of very physical Czech team. With Mullings, Melvin Ejim of Brampton, Ont. (Iowa State), Toronto product Dwight Powell (Stanford), and Owen Klassen of Kingston, Ont. (Acadia) all looking to score inside, Canada outscored the Czechs 30-12 in the third quarter, and carried that pace through to the final minute.

    That resiliency is the product of the team’s experience, according to Mullings.

    “We spent a lot of time together and we’ve been through a lot. It’s about getting through adversity, not hanging your head if you lose a lead. We stay together as a collective unit, and to win the gold you have to go through all of that.”

    Here's the story from basketball.ca:
    Canada’s men’s team of student athletes registered an 87-56 win over the Czech Republic at the 27th FISU Summer Universiade. The victory keeps Canada perfect in the tournament with a 4-0 record.

    Dwight Powell of Toronto, Ont. opened the game’s scoring just 15 seconds in to the match, but the Czech Republic surged ahead with a strong team effort. The Czech side responded with a 9-0 run to put Team Canada on its heels. The first ten minutes of play ended with Canada trailing by a 19-10 margin. The second quarter played out in much the same way as Canada’s deficit stretched to 10 points. A pair of late Kevin Pangos three-pointers drew Team Canada close, but the strong and physical Czech Republic squad went into halftime ahead 34-28.

    The Canadians found their footing in the second half and began to execute on offence. With four minutes left in the frame, Canada drew even at 43 points – the first time Canada had not trailed since the game’s 1:20 mark. From there, Canada unleashed a barrage at the offensive end with a 15-3 run. The final quarter saw much of the same as the Czech Republic could not keep up with the Red and White. Canada’s student athletes notched 29 points in the period while limiting the opposition to ten.

    Holland Landing, Ontario’s Pangos finished with a game-high 17 points, including three baskets from long range. The student men’s balanced attack saw three more players finish in double digits: Daniel Mullings had 15 while Powell and Murphy Burnatowski contributed 11 each. Team Canada out-rebounded the Czech side by a count of 56-33 with 28 coming on the offensive side. Owen Klassen led the way with 12, while Jordan Bachynski collected ten on the day. The game’s statistics can be viewed here.

    When asked about the team’s performance, head coach Jay Triano told Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), “We weren’t quick to the ball in the first half, but the second half we were active. As some teams wear down in this tournament, we’re fresh and we can run guys in and out. We bring an energy that we can be consistent with throughout a whole game. Our pressure defensively today showed that.”

    Toronto, Ontario’s Mullings added, “We use our defence as our staple. Once we keyed in on their point guards and shooting guards to slow them down getting into their offence, I think that helped our offence.”

    The victory sets-up a showdown for first place as Team Canada faces the United States on Friday. Team USA dropped a 93-84 decision to Australia moments before Canada tipped-off against the Czech Republic. Friday’s contest for first is scheduled to begin at 5:00 a.m. (ET). The match will be broadcast live online at www.fisu.tv.

    So I guess we'll see Mullings when NM St. visits K2.
    But we don't play nobody.

    Default Canada and Australia to quarterfinals, US out

    Canada won 94-85 over the US and wins the pool with Australia second. Brady Heslip had the hot hand again with 22 points. The best the US can do now is ninth. I believe Kevin may have had 9 points but the box score didn't seem to be up yet.

    Canada coach runs team like youth team, everyone plays nearly same. Results don't lie, it works. USA multimillion dollar staff just sat glumly. KP repped GU very well. Wiltjer looked lost. McD puts them up even when Dad isn't coach.
