Watch Jermaine Anderson Play Tonight

Jermaine Anderson and team Canada will be taking on Team USA tonight in what will be a blood bath.  The game started at 9pm AST but is being shown on tape delay in Canada (11:00pm AST) on The Score (which is sort of really annoying).

Despite being really tired I will at least watch the first half.  We get to see Anderson play against Jason Kidd, Chris Paul and Deron Williams.  Let’s see if he can hang with those guys. I obviously don’t expect him to run them off the floor or anything, but to be able to watch him take on those guys will be great and sort of surreal.

EDIT

I saw the first half of the game, but quickly realized that it was a blow out.  They stayed close in the first quarter, but the lack of depth really showed quickly.  Jermaine had a great game from what I saw.  He handled the pressure really well, despite Team USA’s new found defensive intensity.  He is a great ball handler and it showed.  He finished the game with a team high 18 points plus 2 assists and most importantly only 1 turnover.  He did not look out of place at all out there.  I honestly could see him in the NBA as a third string PG on a decent team/back up on a team with a thin backcourt.  His size is a bit of a problem for the NBA but he has the speed to play decent defense and he does not make a whole lot of mistakes.  Anderson was probably the best Canadian on the court during the first half (English and Anthony were good in spurts, too).

On another note:  Team Canada are not very good.

  1. Benoite, Jones shortlisted for MUN basketball job

    Memorial University’s next men’s basketball coach will be either Peter Benoite or Augy Jones.

    The pair of former Atlantic university stars have been shortlisted for the post and will each give a public presentation as part of the final selection process, the university said in a release.

    Benoite, a Newfoundland native, played five seasons with the Sea-Hawks from 1993-98 and was a first-team All-Canadian in his final season. He was an assistant to former Memorial coach Todd Aughey before playing last year with the Halifax Rainmen in the American Basketball Association. He was named the franchise’s first team captain.

    Jones, of Halifax, played five seasons at St. Francis Xavier from 1986-91. He was an assistant with the X-Men for several seasons and spent last season as an assistant to Ross Quackenbush with the AUS champion Saint Mary’s Huskies.

    Jones was to give his presentation at the university on Thursday while Benoite will present on Monday.

    The Memorial position opened in late June when Aughey resigned following a season in which the Sea-Hawks went 0-20.
