Exclamation Greece trounces Canada 123-49 at Acropolis event

Quote:
Greece did Canada no favors on Tuesday's opening day of the Acropolis basketball tournament, winning 123-49 for its largest victory margin.

All four teams are finalists at the 2010 FIBA World Championship to be held in Turkey from Aug. 28 to Sep. 12.

Center Sofoklis Schortsanitis led Greece with 24 points on 11-for-12 shooting. But he injured his right hand when fouled driving toward the basket with 3:30 to go in the third period and Greece leading 72-26. He left the court screaming in frustration without even attempting the free throws.

Guard Jevohn Shepherd scored 12 points for Canada.

Greece used its trademark stifling defense from the start and never let Canada into the game. The Greeks led 28-6 after the first quarter and 58-20 at halftime. The hosts didn't relent in the second half, leading 84-32 at the end of the third period.

The Greeks shot 42-for-54 from the field, including 13-for-18 3-pointers. Canada shot 15-for-58.

Greece is a good, man.

They're currently the ranked 4th in the world and should challenge for a medal.

Canada is not good and was playing after arriving the day before and without Rautins.

As the only consitent threat from outside on a team that can't shoot he is.

They still would've got trounced, but they might have at least score 60.

The development team didn't even lose this bad to Spain's senior team.

It's all part of Leo's master plan! Keep a low profile after beating France and China. Very cunning you old fox you.

They should have a mercy rule. After the team reaches a 50 point lead they should just end the game because it is just too disrespectful. Anyone else agree?

I don't think there should be a rule... but it should be one of those things that are unspoken among coaches. If you're up by 50, tell you players to cool it down. You've already won, so no point in going on.
