Welcome to day 15 of Kyle Wiltjer Watch. Kyle’s still in Russia playing for the Canadian Developmental Team, who crushed the United Arab Emirates earlier today, 137-43. Wiltjer had 22 points in the win, which tied for a team high with Brady Heslip.
Afterwards, he told North Pole Hoops that his team won by playing tough defense and sharing the ball: “The first thing that we focus on is our defence and that really leads to easy baskets. We’re an unselfish team. We have very talented players so we can all share the ball.”
(Sounds like a Calipari player to me…)
Kyle’s still trying to decide whether or not he’ll transfer to Gonzaga or stay at Kentucky next season. The Canadians will be in Russia until the FISU Summer Games end on July 17th. A source tells KSR we should expect to hear his decision early next week.
Meanwhile, just be happy he’s still wearing UK gear:
