Eurobasket Continues, Lynx Near Clinching Best Record, USMNT Tonight

It's a Friday.

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Eurobasket continues today with half the teams in action:

7:30am Central

Germany v. Ukraine
Montenegro v. Bosnia and Herzegovina

10:30am Central

Belgium v. Great Britain
Latvia v. Lithuania

2:00pm Central

France v. Israel
Macedonia v. Serbia

Other stuff:

The Minnesota Lynx have four games remaining in the regular season and are three up in the loss column on the Los Angeles Sparks for the top record in the Western Conference.  They have two games coming up in Seattle starting Saturday night, then play in LA, before finishing the regular season at home against Chicago, who have already clinched the East. Depending on how things go, that last game may decide best record/home court for the entire league.

The USMNT resumes World Cup Qualifying tonight in Costa Rica, where they have never won.  However, they have been on an unprecedented hot streak this year, and are on the verge of qualifying for Brazil.  Landon Donovan makes his return to the full national team.

The match is at 9:00 CDT, on BeIn Sport.  Good luck with that.
