After a tough game last night that went to overtime against Israel PurdUeSA is back on the court less than 24 hours later. Vince Edwards is also expected to play after a foot injury took him off the floor in the first half. It was a rough game, but a late three in overtime by Dakota Mathias saved us and sent us to the quarterfinals to face Serbia tonight at 12:30AM ET.

The Serbians had their own close call. They pulled out a tight 85-84 win over Finland in double overtime, so they might have tired legs as well. Nemanja Nenadic has 17 points, including the game-winning basket with 21 seconds left in the second overtime.

This will not be an easy game. Serbia was 4-1 in the group stage with wins over Latvia90-87, Chinese Taipei 82-64, Hungary 70-62, and South Korea 91-64. They lost to Mexico 89-83, but this is a good team with one win already over one of the semifinalists. Latvia upset Germany to reach the semifinals and will play Lithuania.

As for how to watch, here is the embedded livestream.
