Luke Hancock Scores 15 Points in Team USA's Rout of the Czech Republic

In team USA’s second blowout win in two days, Luke Hancock proved his worth yet again.  Today’s victory wasn’t as big as the 140-46 victory over the United Arab Emirates, but 96-53 victory is still very large.

Luke Hancock provided his usual scoring touch, however, scoring 15 points for Team USA.  Even better is the fact that all fifteen points were scored on five three pointers!  He wound up shooting 50% on the day from behind the arc, and come this fall, I’ll take that any day.  Hancock also managed to snag two rebounds, steal the ball once, and commit one turnover in seventeen minutes of play.

Below is the full Team USA stat line, courtesy of USABasketball.com:

The game will be on ESPNU and ESPN3 at 7 pm tonight, for those of you who wish to see Luke Hancock shoot well with your own eyes.  Team USA will play Sweden on Wednesday, then Australia the day after that, and Canada on Friday.  Should be two great games after what will more than likely be a blowout of Sweden.
