Canadian College Basketball Player Quiets 'USA' Chants with Deep Three

Thursday March 6th, 2014

Last month, when the Canadian and U.S. Olympic men’s hockey teams faced off in Sochi, we here at Extra Mustard had a bit of a back and forth between American editor Sam Page and Canadian editor Dan Treadway. The Canadians won that one, and last night, towards the end of the first half between the Michigan/Illinois college basketball game, the Canadians might have scored another victory.

While the Illinois faithful were trying to taunt Canadian Nik Stauskas (who plays for Michigan) with chants of "USA," the 20-year-old shooting guard buried a deep three to basically silence crowd.

And then he strutted off the court with a smirk on his face too. Damn.
