USA Wins FIBA World Championship

USA Win FIBA World Championship ISTANBUL — Kevin Durant beamed as he listened to his national anthem, which hadn’t been played at the end of the world championship in 16 years. And that was no “B-Team” standing beside him on the center of the medals platform. It was the best team in the world. The United States won its first world championship since 1994 on Sunday, beating Turkey 81-64 behind another sensational performance from the tournament MVP. Durant scored 28 points, setting a record along the way for most in the tournament by a US player. He left the court with 42 seconds remaining and shared a long hug with coach Mike Krzyzewski, who finally won the world title after his previous two attempts ended with bronze medals. “Our only option was to come out here and get a gold, and it feels really good to bring this back home to the States,” Durant said. With Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Co. sitting home, this group was called a “B-Team,” which the players were aware of and couldn’t wait to disprove. The Turks were a step slow and consistently beaten on the boards, perhaps drained from their thrilling 83-82 victory over Serbia in Saturday’s late game. “Nobody was expecting to be this far,” Turkoglu said. “So I’m really happy, really proud.” FIBA inducted its Hall of Fame class at halftime, a group that included women’s star Cheryl Miller, former NBA centers Vlade Divac and Arvydas Sabonis, and Brazilian star Oscar Schmidt. usa team US Sports Video Football Baseball
