Canada's done.

I caught most of the first half and Canada actually looked pretty solid. It was close for a while and by the end Croatia was up by 10 or so. By the time i got to work i heard that Croatia had blown it out and were leading by 20+.

From what i saw, Canada looked OK, but they were useless inside. Their forwards were completely out of their league. I hate to say it, but Sammy could have really been usefull in this game and could have given Canada a fighting chance.

Roko played OK. he didn't really score, but he really wasn't looking for his own shot. from what i saw he only attempted one shot (3 pointer) and made it. Otherwise he was distributing the ball well, displaying pretty good court vision.

Maurizio Gherardini was on with the play by play guy for pretty much all of the first half too. It was nice listening to him.
