Hoops: Charm City Challenge

UPDATE: Lewis Clinch did not play in the Charm City Challenge. He chose to participate in the Capital City Classic instead.

The US Team lost to the locals at the Charm City Challenge, even though they were severely outmanned in the post. The good news - Alade Aminu led the US team wit 19 points and 13 rebounds.

Georgia Tech signee Alade Aminu led the U.S. with 19 points and 13 rebounds. One of the even organizers sent me the box score and details. Here's what he said about Aminu:

Alade Aminu played well. He was named to the All-Tournament team and led the U.S. with 19 points and 13 rebounds. I think he will fill in nicely in Hewitt's system. He's athletic, but has a slender build. It was also hard to tell since the U.S. team was divided into 2 squads of 5 and each played 20 minutes.

I'll post the full box score once I figure out how to format it correctly, but Aminu went 7-11 from the floor, 0-1 from 3pt range, 5-9 from the FT line, 13 boards (3 off), 4 fouls, 3 turnovers, no blocks, no steals, all in 20 minutes (everyone played 20 minutes).
