+ Gordon is a guest blogger for the Los Angeles Times from Istanbul and weighed-in with his thoughts following today’s win.

+ Clips Nation recapped Team USA’s win over Tunisia and noted that at the conclusion of pool play, Gordon is the team’s second-leading scorer at 10.9 ppg. Impressive when you consider that many believed Gordon was near the cut line for the final roster.
