The USA men’s basketball team will take on Spain at 12 p.m. ET for the bronze medal at the FIBA U19 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt. Led by Kentucky head coach John Calipari — as well as UK rising freshmen Hamidou Diallo and P.J. Washington — the Americans were upset 99-87 by Canada earlier this weekend. The defeat marked the United States’ first loss in World Cup play since 2011, paving way for Canada’s first ever appearance in the World Cup final. Today’s third-place contest will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
