    Wish I could eat some Tim Hortons doughnuts in Ejim's honor.

    To be honest, would not of guessed that Canada would be 5-0 compared to the US team at 3-2. Cool to see Ejim contributing and having fun, all while improving his game.

    Canada's head coach appears to double as their chef.

    Re: Canada vs USA Highlights and Melvin interview

    Can't believe I set my alarm and watched the game at 4 am, but I did. Ejim was his usual hustle, run the floor, hit the boards, set the screens, etc. He'd kill me cuz of how he responded to the reporter that said it (earlier this year) , but...kinda the "glue" guy really. Doing the little things. I will say Canada's big guys hurt the U.S. , wish we had one like that. And Heslip was impressive to me. Wonder if Pierre Jackson just was so much of the offense last yr. for Baylor, and their trees inside, that he never got it going. He'll be tough this year, imo. Kudos to Ejim for making the team.

    Did they win despite the dominance of Aaron White?

    I don't mind losing to Canada as long as an ISU guy is on the team!

    Our non-Coach K led international basketball efforts have left a lot to be desired over the past decade plus, given the talent the US has compared to everywhere else. Seems like he's the magic formula for our NBA guys in the Olympics though.
