A Win For A Fallen Friend

As Spanish players celebrated their 92-83 bronze medal game victory over Turkey at center court, a misty eyed Marc Rubio pointed toward heaven to pay tribute to his fallen friend, Guillem Raventos.

Raventos, who died in a motorcycle accident yesterday, took part in the Spanish team’s preparations and was a team-mate of Rubio with DKV Joventut.
