Former Rainman point guard Jermaine Anderson has been playing well for Canada as the men’s team tries to claw its way into the olympics.
He scored 17 points on 70% shootings (!) in a 79-77 victory over Korea today, including the final 4 points of the game, including the go ahead three. He also had five boards and 3 assists (I think his rebounding is something we sort of over looked when he played for Halifax. He was a great defensive rebounder). He had nine points in a losing effort against Slovenia a few days ago. Halifax have to take on a tough Croatian team on Friday. The winning team goes into the semis and have a shot at the Olympics: the top 3 teams get to go to Bejing.
This is really off topic, but Dalembert has left the national team and will not return. Denam Brown never showed up for camp. Leo Rautins seems to be having rough relationships with his star players, if he keeps this up we may be able to get him to come coach the Rainmen after Canada gives him the boot.
