The two future Dawgs will likely never be in purple and gold together, but they are still fun to watch.

Watch Markelle Fultz deflect the ball leading to a steal, then run the fastbreak culminating in a lob to Michael Porter Jr.

"Fantastica!!"

The USA U18 men’s team routed Brazil in the Semi-Finals 88-48. Porter Jr. led Team USA with 17 points in 16 minutes on 6-9 shooting. The unselfish Fultz recorded a double-double with 10 points and 11 assists in just 19 minutes. Fultz did not have a single turnover in the game, but managed six steals.

Team USA plays Canada today for the championship. Fultz will face his Damatha Catholic High School teammate Nate Darling in a game scheduled for a 5:15 PDT tip-off on FIBA’s Youtube channel.

Fultz had several highlight plays, including a vicious one-handed dunk for the game’s second basket. Watch the full game against Brazil here. The action starts at about the 13-minute mark.
