Australia Assistant on Beating USA: ‘It’s Always Possible’

“It’s always possible, mate,” Australia assistant coach and former NBA championship-winning center Luc Longley said Monday after an impressive 95-80 win over Serbia moved the Americans’ next opponent to a surprising 2-0 in Group A. “There are no impossibilities in basketball.”
