Inside The Prison Where Inmates Set Each Other On Fire and Gangs Have More Power Than Guards

Inside The Prison Where Inmates Set Each Other On Fire and Gangs Have More Power Than Guards by Jerry Mitchell, Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting LEAKESVILLE, Miss. — Jeffery Wilemon clutched his gut, throbbing in pain as he lay on his bed inside the South Mississippi Correctional Institution in April. But there was no way for him to cry out — not unless he wanted another beating.

Australia grabbed a lead , and the U . S . matched with a big run. But this time, the Americans didn’t let Australia back in the game. Despite allowing Australia to make some runs in the first half, Popovich was pleased with the effort of his team that is still coming together with a major tournament just ahead.

Australia was also without its biggest star, Ben Simmons, who has opted not to play in the World Cup. Still, the Boomers starting lineup included four NBA players: Mills, Aron Baynes, Joe Ingles and Matthew Dellavedova.

The crowd produced only a smattering of applause for American baskets. However, cheers erupted when the Boomers cut down the U.S. lead before halftime on back-to-back 3-pointers by Goulding and six straight points by Mills.

The win was the 78th in a row in major international exhibitions and competition for the U.S. national team, a streak that started with the bronze medal game of the 2006 world championships. It encompasses gold-medal runs at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, the Olympics in 2008, 2012 and 2016, and the FIBA Americas tournament in 2007.

It also made the U.S. 2-0 under coach Gregg Popovich, after last weekend's exhibition win in California over Spain.
