The United States men’s basketball team cruised to a 96-72 win over Spain, claiming the bronze medal at the 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup.

 

The Americans received a balanced offensive attack in which all 12 players on the roster scored, with none surpassing more than 13 points. Rising Kentucky freshmen Hamidou Diallo and P.J. Washington both garnered a starting nod from UK head coach John Calipari, scoring nine and six points, respectively.

 

In addition to his nine points on 3-of-6 shooting from the floor (and 3-of-4 shooting from the foul line), Diallo tallied four rebounds and two assists over an efficient 16 minutes of playing time. Washington’s six points came on 2-of-3 shooting, while knocking down 2-of-5 at the charity stripe. The 6-foot-8 forward managed one assist, as well as a steal on the defensive end.

      agslater: your comments, grammar and spelling are childlike. I don’t think you should take shots at anyone.
