Pondexter comes up big in another USA win

The USA beat Bulgaria 96-66 in the quarterfinals of the World University Games today and UW’s Quincy Pondexter led the way with a team-high 15 points.
Here’s the box score, which also shows Pondexter had four rebounds and hit 5-11 shots (including 1-2 on threes) and 4-4 free throws in a team-high 21 minutes.
The US will play Russia tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. Seattle time. Russia beat Lithuania today 82-73.
If the US wins that game, it would likely get a rematch with Serbia for the championship. Serbia, which lost to the US 68-66 earlier this week, beat Turkey 68-46 today in its quarterfinal game to advance and will play Israel in the other semifinal Friday.
The title game is Saturday at noon our time.
BROCKMAN UPDATE — Also today, there is this story out of Sacramento reporting that Kings’ coaches were happy with the hustle of Jon Brockman after his first summer practice, but unhappy that Spencer Hawes has decided not to play in the summer league.
Most encouraging for Brockman is the quote from Kings coach Paul Westphal that he would be “real surprised” if Brockman does not make the roster this season.
