Day 2 (Games)-July 19, 2014
Day one ended with an evening of practice, drills and registration to prepare the players for the next two days that would be very tough with the amount of games to be played. Game day two and three were very good as the talent level was surely there and the players played extremely hard. Day two saw dozens of scouts coming in and out of the gym for each game as they evaluated the talent in this second session of Eurobasket Summer League in Las Vegas. The third and final day was very interesting as Venice lost its first game, but was able to still advance to the championship game because they had the highest of amount of points scored of any team. Venince then moved on to win the ESL championship over Manchester 81-78. Manchester would not go away in this contest as they came back in the fourth quarter after being 18 points down to tie the game and send it to overtime. Venice eventually pulled out the victory and were led by Lamar Brinkley (191-F-89) who was unstoppable and played his heart out scoring 25 points and grabbing 9 rebounds.
