Cam Whitmore and Mark Armstrong with Team USA at the FIBA U18 Americas Championship
Whitmore is averaging 14ppg while Armstrong is averaging 8.3. The USA plays Mexico in the Quarterfinals at 10p ET on Friday. Watch the live stream here.
Continue to love Cam Whitmore's aggressive, explosive approach at all times. Can shoot the deep ball but also plays like he has a vendetta against the rim. He posted 24 points (11-13 FG) in just 20 minutes vs Puerto Rico - excited for next year at Villanova. pic.twitter.com/ocDbU4tiZW— Derek Murray (@DMurrayHoops) June 10, 2022
