Andrew Bogut drops fantastic quote after Australia defeats France

Andrew Bogut

Underneath that tough Aussie exterior is quote the charismatic character.

After Australia picked up the 87-66 victory over France in the opening men’s basketball contest at the Rio Games on Saturday, center Andrew Bogut delivered this outstanding one-liner about the team’s defensive mentality heading into the competition, per John Schuhmann of

The 31-year-old Bogut, who finished with 18 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists in the upset win, should definitely be pleased. Australia indeed managed to be “pricks” on the defensive end Saturday, playing with physicality and purpose while also showcasing patience and precision on the offensive side of the ball.

Bogut has had his own struggles early on in Rio, but, through it all, he’s managed to stay the same hard-nosed bruiser we’ve all come to know and love. Australia will need that kind of mindset if they are to survive a Group A bracket that also houses the United States.
