US wins but Pondexter scoreless UPDATED

I see since I first wrote this that Quincy Pondexter has let everyone know via his Twitter page that he sprained his ankle “real bad” on Friday.
So that explains why he was held scoreless in seven minutes today in the bronze medal contest of the World University Games. The US won the bronze by beating Israel 91-80. Pondexter writes he tried to play today but was in a lot of pain.
Here’s the box score showing he managed one assist and a foul before departing.
Here is the main story on the game though it doesn’t mention Pondexter.
And here are the final stats for the tournament showing Pondexter was the team’s sixth leading scorer at 7.9 per game (a number obviously influenced negatively quite a bit by going scoreless today) hitting 17-36 shots overall, 1-6 three-pointers. He also averaged 3.0 rebounds and had 10 assists overall in playing 18 minutes per game.
This is it for the World University Games and the team will now return home.
BROCKMAN UPDATE — If you missed it, Jon Brockman had five points and eight rebounds in his first summer league game for Sacramento Friday, an 86-77 loss to the Detroit Pistons.
The Kings’ blog Cowbell Kingdom was impressed by Brockman’s rebounding.
Brockman and the Kings will be back in action again today (Saturday) at 5 p.m. against the Warriors, and you can watch the game over the internet here.
CONROY UPDATE — Another former Husky, Will Conroy, had eight points for the Houston Rockets Friday on 2-5 shooting and 4-6 free throws with one rebound and four assists in 23 minutes.in a 73-69 win over the Warriors. Conroy is attempting to make the team after playing last season in the NBA D-League.
The Rockets will be back in action again tonight against the Mavericks in the game following Brockman’s with the Kings.
By the way, Bobby Jones is playing with Portland, which doesn’t begin action until Monday. Here’s the complete schedule for the Vegas summer league as well as options for viewing the games.
