France Upsets USA in Quarterfinals

The United States fell to France on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIBA World Cup in Dongguan, China. France outscored the USA 26-13 in the fourth quarter on their way to an 89-79 victory.

The loss snapped a 58-game winning streak for USA Basketball in tournament games with NBA players and means that the Americans will fail to win a major international tournament for the first time since the 2006 world championships.

After scoring a team-high 16 points in Monday's win over Brazil, Pacers center Myles Turner battled foul trouble on Wednesday and played just 10:18, finishing with two points on 1-of-2 shooting, one rebound, and one block.
