Don’t tell Spain it’s just another exhibition game against the U.S.
Question of the Day
The Spanish have already shown they’re willing to play things close to the vest, even when the game does count. Krzyzewski was more amused than confused when Spain pressed in an effort to conceal strategy for a rematch in its 37-point loss to the U.S. during pool play four years ago. Yet he thinks the atmosphere surrounding Tuesday’s game will force Spain to play to win.
“I think tomorrow they’ll come after us pretty hard because we’re playing in Barcelona. A number of these guys have Barcelona ties, they either grew up here or they played here, and it’ll be an emotional night. So it would be different if we were playing them in Washington D.C., I think, or some other place,” Krzyzewski said.
The U.S. just got a stern test here, beating Argentina 86-80 on Sunday after losing most of a 20-point lead. The Argentines sure treated the game like it meant something, standing up to the Americans with their physical play and keeping their stars in the game all the way as they tried to catch up.
