Live Blog: USA vs. Croatia
Live from Istanbul
by Matt Lawyue / @mlawyue
I’m here at the Abdi Ipekci Arena in Istanbul, Turkey for the start of the World Basketball Championships. I’ll be using Cover It Live for the five Team USA – Group B games. All of their games will be aired live on the ESPN network.
Sitting next to me is Nick of Euroleague Adventures, who will be commenting as well.
Team USA should have very little trouble advancing from this group. Of the six teams in each group, the top four advance. Look for USA, Slovenia, Croatia and Brazil to make it to the next round. Tunisia and Iran should be sent packing early.
