Jamal Murray and Canada defeat the US in OT 111-108

Via Twitter

With no points scored heading into the fourth quarter Jamal Murray took over. The Canucks were trailing 80-74 when Murray came alive. He scored 14 points to help get the game to overtime and then added 8 more, including the game-sealing 3, to take down the Americans. He also found his teammates several times to finish with 8 assists. This win will send the Canadians to the finals of the PanAm games for the first time where they will be facing Brazil. Murray appears to be the real deal after another stellar performance against several professionals.

Can we get this kid in Lexington already?

    Murray may be the top guard in the NCAA this year. Fraschilla kept saying Murray likes to drive to his left. I wonder if this is a serious criticism.

    With Ulis, Briscoe, and Murray on the floor, Alex Poythress will get 15-20 points a night. Going to be a great year for Alex.

    Found myself cheering for both teams. Also found myself hoping Murray would sink the winning shot in regulation. Felt weird being for Canada as an American. Just an amazing performance by Murray.

    Not only are you getting an outstanding athlete in Jamal Murray, you are also getting a quality young man. Humble, considerate, and a real team player… big ego.
