American coach Mike Taylor: From Pennsylvania to Poland

Poland made history in its opening game of the basketball World Cup in China, winning at the tournament for the first time in 52 years.

Beating Venezuela might have been just for starters.

Next comes China on Monday in the second game for two countries trying to break through. China won its opener against Ivory Coast and is hoping to gain credibility in the World Cup after an abysmal 0-10 record in the last two Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and London.

“China not only has a home-court advantage, but also a home-country advantage,” said American Mike Taylor, Poland’s coach for the last six years.

Taylor also coaches the German club Hamburg Towers. Basketball has dragged him back and forth between the United States and Europe with stops in Germany, the Czech Republic, England — the fringes of the NBA with developmental teams like the Rio Grande Vipers and the Maine Red Claws — and now Poland.
