A much-anticipated meeting between the U.S. and Canada will come to fruition at the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

It just won’t be for the gold medal.

After the Canadians were knocked off by Serbia, the Americans were stunned 113-111 in the second semifinal match by Germany, which built a double-figure fourth-quarter lead and fended off a frantic U.S. rally in the waning minutes.

And so, Serbia and Germany will meet for the gold medal on Sunday in Manilla with the U.S. and Canada playing in the bronze-medal game, one that will feature a slew of elite NBA players.
