Australia, Good Game Or More Of The Same?

It's been so easy, perhaps too easy, through the first five games for U.S. men's team. It won by an average of 32.2 points and its closest game was a 21-point win over Angola that wasn't nearly as competitive as the final score would suggest. As the U.S. enters the...
