Team USA World University Games disastrous result

I watched the game vs Canada today. How the hell did these coaches get picked? I get Beilein as an assistant, as much as I think he's overrated. But McKillop? The guy couldn't coach defense if his life depended on it, and it showed. Giving up over 90 points in back to back games to bow out of the tournament (the best the USA can finish now is 9th) is completely unacceptable. The roster he picked was suspect at best (only 1 real PG and that was f'n Yogi Ferrell). We looked slow defensively, the more experienced teams from Canada and Australia picked us apart from outside, and Canada killed us with second chance points and points in the paint. We also turned the ball over (PG anyone?) more than our final two opponents. McKillop better not get anywhere near any team wearing USA on the fronts of their jerseys ever again. I do think we kind of got screwed by the organizing committee, being in the same group as two of the top countries for college basketball. But this was a bad result; no way to argue that.
