Willy Hernangomez (Spain) is in action later today against Romania. Hernangomez’s squad has been the best in the tournament by a wide margin, and he’s been a big reason why.
The 23-year-old is the team’s leading rebounder, and he’s getting valuable minutes on a winning team. That’s a good thing for a guy who did a lot of losing last year and will keep losing next season.
