Default Russia 93 - Michigan State 75

http://www.eurohoops.net/2015/08/eurobasket/119001

RUSSIA GOT AN EASY WIN

The opponent was Michigan State, and Russia didn’t have an issue teaching the young guys a lesson. The Russian national team got the 93-75 win in a preparation game in Trieste, Italy.

Nikita Kurbanov had 16 points, while the duo of Fridzon and Vorontsevich added 14 points each, and the unit of coach Pashutin had an easy night. Denzel Valentine had 21 points for the losing side, which tried to stay close but couldn’t. Russia had a 32-13 lead in the first quarter and the game was over.

Russia is missing most of their best players - no Shved, no Mozgov, no Karasev, and some others, and so far in their prep games this summer they have played pretty bad and lost most of their games to the other European teams they played against.

They also basically only played their top unit half the game, and used the second line players mostly after the first quarter.

Andrea Bargnani and Lugi Datome didn't play, and Danilo Gallinari only played 4 minutes, because Italy's coach wanted to make the game more competitive...........
