Donovan, USA Move Into FIBA Americas Semifinals

4 posts in this topic

Billy Donovan has USA Basketball rolling after three resounding victories, earning the Group B top seed for the semifinals at the 2014 FIBA Americas and running Donovan’s record as USA head coach to 17-0.

"I think during our last three games, we've gotten better in some areas and we got a chance to learn in some other areas, so we're excited that we've been able to move on and advance to the medal round,” Donovan said.

The USA squad (3-0) takes on a Dominican Republic team (2-1) that finished as a runner up to Canada in Group A. The other semifinal features Group A winner Canada against Group B runner up Argentina. The gold and bronze medal games will take place on Tuesday.

In the USA’s tournament opener, it posted a 156-58 win over Uruguay, setting USA Basketball records for points, margin of victory (98) and assists (40).

Look at these scores, won 2 games by 54 and the other by 98, hilarious...

Well, if nothing else, I think it's safe to say those guys are having a good time. 40 assists in 1 game? They must be setting each other up with some sweet alley-oops and knocking down 3's like it's going out of style.

They won again tonight, btw, beating the Dominican Republic 90-56 to advance to the gold-medal game against Canada tomorrow night at 7:30.
