FIBA Update: Team USA out while Rubio’s Spain and Baynes Australia still alive

Wow, remember when Team USA was devastated when they only won bronze at the Olympics in 2004 after finishing sixth, out of the medals, in FIBA World Championships in 2002?

Well, now they’ve done it again.

Nearly a dozen of the best American players took the summer off for various reasons, including the Suns Devin Booker, and now the depleted Team USA came up short in the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIBA’s today.

Team USA lost to France in the quarterfinals today, 89-79, as guards Kemba Walker and Donovan Mitchell came up short in the fourth quarter.
