Canada Canadians bounce back and beat Serbia

Greece beats Slovenia 96-72 at Acropolis event - USATODAY.com

I can't believe I've turned into a Leo Rautins (the coach, not the commentator) fan. This guy is a motivator, they get absolutely HUMILIATED, and yet they come out and take it to country with a rich basketball tradition.

Canada never showed the type of heart under Triano sans Nash that I'm seeing with Rautins.

He could probably still suit up, the man is lean.

He probably still stuffs it down Andy's throat one on one in the driveway during Easter weekend.

Very impressive! Especially after allowing the Greeks to score at will. And the competition; Serbia is still a good squad. Box score anybody?

Leo is a joke. I can't believe that he's coaching our national team.

why would you say that?

He's gotten some pretty great performances out of a team without any great individual players.
he's also gotten the best results that the program has seen in a long time. Every year under his coaching there has been steady improvement. I think he's done a great job.

Look what he has to work with currently. Sure, the limited talent does have something to do with his coaching style (Dalembert). But still, he's doing a fine job making up for their offensive shortcomings through stimieing defense.
