Former Saint Mary’s star Patty Mills and current Gaels star Matthew Dellavedova have been impressive for the Australian men’s basketball Olympic team, but they face their toughest test tomorrow when they meet the overwhelming gold medal favorite, the USA.
The Australians are huge underdogs and would need near perfect games from the two Gaels.
Mills is currently tied for the tournament lead in points per game with 20.6 and made a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer against Russia.
Dellavedova is leading the Australian team with 4.6 assists per game. Once the Olympics conclude, Dellavedova will be heading back to Moraga for his senior season with the Gaels.
