Still, there are questions to be answered. Namely, what happened to Samuel Dalembert? Nonetheless, Canada improbably wins, and will play either Croatia or Puerto Rico on Friday in another must-win game. Barrett ends up with 22 points, while Anderson chips in with 17 points, including the last four points of the game.

Rautins and a player will talk to the media at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. Until then, thanks for reading.

2:45 42-33 Korea. Barrett gets hot, hitting a pair of three pointer, but by now, you know the story. Korea responds with another three-pointer. The announcer clarifies, "We don't know what's happened with Samuel Dalembert. If he's ill..." Now the announcer says according to some unofficial sources, Dalembert is away from the team because he might have had some disagreements. He does not say with who, but one would have to think Rautins, although the two have had a good relationship before this tournament.

49-33 Korea. The story is simple. Korea is 9-for-14 from three-point range. Canada has turned the ball over 13 times. Canada has no interior presence. Samuel Dalembert, apparently, is not in the building. Canada appears to be in disarray, and Leo Rautins' job security has to be at stake.
It seems that Sammy D was upset in the way he was played and i was reading some other site that said he had an argument about Canada's heart, hoping the best and that Sammy comes back for the Quarter Finals.
