Once again team USA wiped out their competition with a 109-68 win against Angola. During the game the players seemed to dominate with ease, holding the lead throughout. There was no question of who the clear winner would be entering halftime.
Hamidou Diallo held the team high score in their first game against Iran with 17 points along with 4 rebounds and 2 assists. He continued his performance into today’s game against Angola with 15 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists. Diallo put on a fierce performance that included both three point play and dunks.
When asked if it was hard not to get lazy when they reach such massive leads, Diallo explained that their focus went beyond one game. “We’re focused on the game that we’re playing but we’re trying to prepare for when the challenges really come,” he said, “we’re just trying to play for the long run thinking about what steps we have to take to win a gold medal, that’s how we think.”
If the first two games have been any indication, Diallo and the rest of the team have nothing to worry about.
