Fil-Am Jalen Green leads USA U17’s 57-point rout of Mali

Filipino-American guard Jalen Green was at the forefront of Team USA’s 97-40 thrashing of Mali in the FIBA U-17 Basketball World Cup in Argentina, Monday morning (Philippine time).

Green scored 15 points to lead USA’s wel-deployed attack, that saw five other players score in double figures. He also finished with three rebounds, three assists, and a pair of steals.

The young American cagers are now on top of Group B with a 2-0 card.

Green, who came off the bench, made his first basket in the 4:48 mark of the opening quarter — a corner three-pointer off a Jeremy Roach assist that gave the USA a 13-4 advantage.
