If you are looking for a sleeper in the 2012 London Olympics in basketball, look no further than the Australian basketball team. Although they don’t much high-end talent, they are well coached and have players who create matchup problems.
Their attack is led by Patrick Mills, a backup point guard for the San Antonio Spurs. Mills is lightning fast and he can shoot from the perimeter. Another key play is David Andersen. Andersen is a big center with a deadly jumper who has had great success in Europe.
Australia isn’t expected to do much but if they get hot, they may shock the world and contend for a bronze medal.
