Team USA vs. Tunisia
Time: 4:15 PM CST
It's hard putting an angle or spin on this game, since it's pretty much the best team in the tournament versus the worst team in the tournament. Aside from Mehdi Jamel Hafsi, who plays in France, the entire Tunisian team plays in the Arab world, and aren't used to the level of competition they'll get internationally. They almost made a fourth quarter comeback against Nigeria yesterday, but Nigeria has had an offensive production problem before, so I'm not reading too much into their success. Admittedly, they are more powerful than the 2010 incarnation that went 0-5 in the World Championship, having more experience playing together and grabbing a few new players. But while that improvement might be enough to win the Afrobasket, it certainly isn't enough to beat Team USA.
On the plus side, we get to see Radouhane Slimane again.
