Kentucky-bound big man P.J. Washington led the way in the scoring column for the US, tallying 17 points. The U.S. (5-0) victory means that the red, white, and blue will finish in the top-four of the event for the 10th time.

Team USA defeated Spain 96-72 to take the bronze medal. "Now, [Germany] went zone, and it was bang, bang, bang with 3s".

His 38 points in the semifinal were the most by any player in the tournament and he made 10 of 18 field goal attempts and was 12-for-15 from the free throw line.

"We got 30 offensive rebounds".

Following three free throws by Immanuel Quickly (John Carroll School/Bel Air, Md.), the US took a 53-52 lead with 5:32 to play in the third. Huerter had two assists and one rebound. While USA's run didn't end with a championship, the OR sophomore was a bright spot for the Americans.

Germany kept the game close in the second quarter and trailed 33-31 at halftime.

Hamidou Diallo (Kentucky) slammed home two to tie the score, Cameron Reddish (Westtown School/Norristown, Pa.) added a jumper and the US was off and running.

Canada outscored the United States 33-28 in the final quarter. Edwards then canned a triple to push the lead to 65-45. Canadian men won the silver medal at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the only Canadian team to ever mount an Olympic podium.

Today's Canada/USA game will be streamed online on ESPN3.com.

Kentucky's Hamidou Diallo and P.J. Washington, who had scored 20 points in each of the last two games, both got in early foul trouble and combined for only 11 points.

A new Duck, Abu Kigab, helped lead the way.
