Boys' basketball: O, Canada!

July 26, 2008 |  2:12 pm

Not sure what this says about the state of elite U.S. basketball, but Grassroots Canada Elite just spanked Pump 'N Run Elite, 79-55, in a semifinal of the Adidas Super 64 tournament.

Tyler Honeycutt (eight points) and Kendall Williams (six) both had substandard games for Pump 'N Run. Sacramento High's Chase Tapley had 19 points and Ontario Colony's Tyler Lamb had 13 in a losing effort.

There's a more positive development for the other remaining Southern California team in the tournament. The Compton Magic has rallied from a 10-point, second-half deficit and now leads the Atlantic Celtics, 78-73, with 3:48 remaining.
