Well, we now know that the United States is better than Iran at basketball.
Like, a lot better.
The U.S. Under-19 squad had absolutely no problem today in its World Cup opener against Iran. The U.S. rolled to an easy 108-48 win over the Iranians and was hardly challenged in the process. Our own Carsen Edwards played a solid game as well. He was the second leading scorer with 15 points on an efficient 5 of 6 shooting from the field. He connected on three of his four 3-point attempts and three assists and a rebound.
If you’re into plus/minus, Carsen had an impressive +32 in the 22:10 he played. He came off the bench for this one, but could earn a starting spot before all is said and done.
Sorry I got this wrap up late, but I am on the road this weekend in northwest Indiana. Carsen and team USA play again on Sunday morning against Angola at 12:15pm. Once again, The livestream will be carried here.
