Team Australia beat Team USA 2013 Red 74-72.

USA 2013 Red included 7 players in the ESPN top 50 including Kasey Hill #6 ranked and Chris Walker #7 ranked.

Jonathan Givony tweeted about the game

"Total team effort for the Australians knocking off a team full of top-50 US high school recruits. Dante Exum the orchestrator"

Great result for the Aussie team! Exum will be able to choose which college he wants to attend one would think...North Carolina looking likely

Nbadraft.net did a write up of Day 1

http://nbadraft.net/2012-adidas-nations-day-1

International Standout

Ben Simmons -- Australian SF Ben Simmons just turned 16 and he's already standing out against American players two years his elder. He is a lefty with a sweet shooting stroke and tremendous feel for the game. Along with teammate Dante Exum, the Aussies pulled off the win against the 2013 red rising senior American team (which included Kasey Hill, Chris Walker and Brannen Greene) he wowed scouts on hand with his tremendous leaping ability and all around skills. He started the game off flashing his tremendous vision and passing skills. He also pushed the ball up the floor in transition showing advanced ball handling ability. Additionally he shows a first step to get by opponents off the bounce. He had one play towards the end of the game where he rose up from outside the circle and dunked over a defender. He was the guy receiving the most buzz after day 1, as scouts were raving about him as a potential future top 5 pick. This kid has a chance to be special.

Does anyone know what the deal is with Owen Odigie and what his plans are? Just a little confused since he was a development player for the tigers or something? Yet he still is touring with the AIS

There's some mystery recruit for the Gaels next season and was wondering if it was possibly him, since if he didnt recieve match payments as a tiger he'd still be eligible(Im just taking a shot in the dark here since I have no idea who it could be heh)

Do you know who is going/playing? this is a really good level of competition and a great way to get a name out there in US circles..

A couple who have been there before, a couple of bottom age boys and some of the under 17 Aus squad that played at Oceania in December I think.

From what I hear it is a strong group with some good size. How they gel will be interesting as they would never have played as a team.
