    When Nebraska has a player on the USA Olympic team that will be something. A player making the Nigerian team...well...there are literally hundreds of college players that could make the Nigerian national team. Nigerian basketball is about as significant as Jamaican bobsledding. Ade's a nice player so props to him. But it's not significant as it relates to NU.

    Back on subject, I see Ade played 17min which was the 7th most for his team and scored 6 points. His percentage is pretty low but hopefully he does better.

    Maric on the other hand only played 7min is a loss and only scored two points.

    whatever. It is a good thing all around for Ade and Aleks and you guys choose to dwell on the negatives, guess that's how the world turns these days.

    don't think much of the Olympics but to make a national team is pretty neat. Congrats to all.

    Larson won a national title while playing for NU. Ade and Aleks did what??? Also, if you have watched, Jordan has played incredibly well and received numerous accolades from the announcers.

    What negatives? Just saying it's not really historically significant that a couple former NU players are on foreign also-ran basketball teams. Like I said...I'll do a cartwheel if a Nebraska player ever makes the USA basketball team. It's one of the few things that could get me excited about USA basketball. NBA = puke

    And plays for the American team. A team that's legit.

    Australia and Nigeria are not legit.

    Maric has missed a couple chippies against the US. 19 fouls called in the 1st Q

    I'm surprised he hasn't played more minutes in the olympics overall. I thought he was doing pretty well playing euro ball.

    did you ever compete in the olympics, much less win a medal? no. so i'd suggest you be quiet about this unless you have something nice to say about Aleks' accomplishment.
