United States bounces back, tops Spain to claim bronze medal in World Cup

11 July 2017

U.S. plays Spain, who lost 66-63 to Italy in Saturday's other semifinal, in the FIBA U19 World Cup bronze medal game today.

Wiley won gold last summer as he averaged 8.0 points and a team second-best 6.4 rebounds for Team USA's gold medal victor at the FIBA Men's U17 World Championship in Zaragoza, Spain in 2016. Brandon McCoy (Cathedral Catholic H.S/San Diego, Calif.) contributed eight points and seven rebounds, while Pritchard and Hamidou Diallo (Kentucky) each added eight points.

The United States made 12 three-pointers in the game, and in their six wins in Egypt, averaged a 38 points margin of victory.

It was the first time Canada had even played for a medal at a U19 competition.

"What an incredible moment for Canadian basketball", head coach Roy Rana of Ryerson University told reporters in Cairo after the game.

Kigab, who played high school hoops at Saint Francis and is committed to compete at the University of OR at the collegiate level, scored 17 points, made a team-high 15 rebounds and topped all players on the court with six assists in Friday's elimination game in Cairo. Another Kentucky player, Tai Wynyard, averaged 14.3 points for New Zealand.

Germany refused to fold and although the US built a 28-20 in the second quarter, Germany kept it close and at halftime the Americans led 33-31. But, with 1.3 seconds remaining before the second quarter buzzer, Barrett was fouled on a deep 3 attempt, and after sinking all three free throws, Canada headed to the locker room with a 45-42 lead and Barrett having accounted for 25 of those points. We just don't. What I'm seeing right now is us pressuring them, and at some point, they will back off. The Americans had a 62-53 rebound advantage and grabbed 30 offensive boards leading to 22 second-chance points.

"I think we came out and we played great", Pritchard said. Additionally, the US force Germany into 23 turnovers that led to 20 points.
