1) Andrew Nicholson was strong offensively for Canada at the FIBA Americas Championship, Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post writes, even though Canada bowed out of the tournament with a struggle this weekend.
2) Niki Bakouli of Eurohoops.net spoke with Fenerbahce Ulker's general manager about Hedo Turkoglu's situation. The Turkish team where Turkoglu started his career is still very interested in seeing him return once he is bought out of his Magic contract.
3) Montenegro played perhaps its best game of EuroBasket on Sunday, but still suffered a crushing 77-70 overtime defeat to Lithuania, ending their hopes of advancing to the second round.
4) I think my Google Translate is off, but there is something in Hurriyet about Turkey hitting rock bottom even after Sunday's win.
5) Former NBA player Nenad Krstic led Serbia to the second round with a win over Latvia on Sunday.
