Huerter, USA win bronze

Huerter, USA win bronze

The other semifinal will match Spain and Italy, a team United States of America has already soundly trounced.

Canada, which upended Team USA in the semifinals, beat Italy 79-60 on Sunday.

Langford had an offensive rebound as his lone statistic in the contest. "But then it came down to some breakdowns defensively, and the other thing was, RJ (Barrett) had it going". It's on me that we couldn't do anything to adjust and slow Canada down.

They were draped in flags and choking up as the strains of "O Canada" wafted over them, a history-making group of players and coaches trying to comprehend what they had done. "Congratulate Canada, they deserved to win the game". Team USA outscored Germany 21-4 over the final 7:20 of the quarter to grab a 56-41 lead.

With the U.S. owning a 30-22 lead with 7:37 to play in quarter two, Canada went on a 11-1 run to take a 33-31 lead with 4:16 left before halftime. The two-point deficit was the first time the US trailed in the second half of the tournament.

Barrett, a 6-foot-7 wing who has Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Arizona, and IN among some of his early recruiting leaders, was 10-of-18 from the field, 2-of-6 from the ac and 12-of-15 at the free-throw line. Canada led for all but 42 seconds in the seconds half.

Canada will move on to the tournament finals against Italy on Sunday.

"To be able to bounce back and play the way they did from start to finish shows me a lot about them", said US head coach John Calipari (Kentucky) on his team's effort in the bronze medal game. Wiley, who scored seven points during the U.S.'s decisive third quarter run, was 9-for-15 from the field.

"One of their guys - RJ Barrett - he had a really good game".

"The minute you put Kevin in - he makes everyone around him better on offense and defense", Calipari said. Team Canada was led by R.J. Barrett, the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2019 class, who scored 38 points and had 13 rebounds and five assists. They shot 58.1 percent from the free-throw line and 26.1 percent from distance.

"From the jump our energy wasn't there".

"I think everybody had chills", said Rana. "We just weren't locked in, honestly".

Beating the United States in Saturday's semifinal was nearly as significant as trouncing Italy for the gold medal.

John Calipari, Team USA's coach at the World Cup, became the first American coach to lose a game since 2011.
