Davidson's Curry contributes to rout

Davidson's Stephen Curry had nine points and five assists in the USA Men’s U19 team's 118-56 win against Mali on Thursday in the opening game of the FIBA World Championship in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Curry had five fouls in 13 minutes, but was 3-of-4 from the field.

The U.S. team, which led 34-5 by the end of the first quarter, will play China at 2:30 p.m. Friday.

Why do you have 5 fouls in a blow-out of that magnitude?

Probably going for steals or something - getting sloppy in a rout game. Then the refs probably wanting to send a message in an effort to get the game under control.

Just a guess. I really don't know. Could also just be ticky-tacky fouls called.

Who knows?
