    Spain has the edge over US cagers, under the boards,…european basketball,as well as, Australia, are adept in attacking the center on incursions & blind passes,either, inside for 7-ft burly centers & forwards,or outside back passes for sniping treys,…which reveals the weak half-court defense of the Americans.
