    FIBA World Cup

    Krzyzewski will be coaching the US in newly renamed FIBA World Cup, in Spain, Aug 30-Sept 14.

    Here's official website, including groups, brackets: http://www.fiba.com/spain2014

    Every game to be carried by ESPN/2/3/Deportes. I assume all US and some other big matchups will be on ESPN/2.

    Here are the groups:

    Group A:
    Brazil
    Egypt
    France
    Iran
    Serbia Spain

    Group B:
    Argentina
    Croatia
    Greece
    Philippines
    Puerto Rico
    Senegal

    Group C:
    Dominican Republic
    Finland
    New Zealand
    Turkey
    Ukraine
    USA

    Group D:
    Angola
    Australia
    Korea (South)
    Lithuania
    Mexico
    Slovenia


    it appears that our group is not so bad, but group A, with Brazil, France, and Spain is somewhat of a group of death, or at least group of near death, since the top four teams in each group advance.
    Excelsior!

    If the mods were wondering, I think all the Team USA-centric chatter was happening in this thread:

    Don't forget about Serbia in Group A, they have a ton of young talent. That's easily the toughest group. Might be more talent in that group than the rest of the field excluding us combined. (although France with Tony Parker won't be as good)
