John Calipari’s Team USA U19 squad rolled through its first two games in the FIBA World Cup over the weekend. The two Kentucky Wildcats playing, Hamidou Diallo and PJ Washington, led the way for their country.

Heading into tomorrow’s game against France, Diallo is averaging 16 points per game. He scored 17 points against Iran on Saturday and followed up with a 15 point performance on Sunday against Angola. Washington has shown off his versatility. He’s averaging 13 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.
