What a beating to have to keep playing for lower and lower "medals"


But I think it's a good learning experience for these guys. Makes them battle hardened for next time around. I imagine a handful will be on the Olympics team, but most will be replaced by the bigger stars. But in the future, some of these guys will be back for other international events.

This team was just woefully inadequate in terms of a well filled out roster. Chock full of wings. Not enough shooters. Not enough bigs that can play this international game (Lopez should have been a great fit, but he just didn't play well or often). Too small at the point.
