Thompkins Does It Again

Howard Thompkins had another super game in international play. He scored 14 points with 9 rebounds in the U.S. team's 82 to 61 victory over Puerto Rico.

Thompkins shot 6 of 12 from the floor. He also had a steal and a blocked shot.

Thompkins is leading the U.S. team in scoring average (12.5), rebounding (5.6) and in shooting (61%).

His confidence should be sky high come late fall.

Agree. Playing the international game with the grab and push style of the Euro's will only help Thompkins prepare for the SEC.

I wish that Chris Barnes, Albert Jackson and Jeremy Price were getting the same kind of experience.

Hopefully, they're all hitting the weights and getting ready.
