Huerter, USA U19 Win Bronze Medal At FIBA World Cup

Canada, which beat the U.S.in Saturday's semifinal, beat Italy 79-60 to win the gold medal.

Point guard Lindell Wigginton, of Dartmouth, N.S., returned to the lineup after missing the previous two games due to injury and was excellent with 11 points and three assists.

Canada's R.J. Barrett, a 17-year-old player, earned tournament MVP honors.

Rana, the head coach of the Ryerson men's team and a coach in the Canada Basketball system for nearly a decade, lauded the high school sophomore for his maturity off the court and his ability to block out the noise that accompanies his lofty status among the long-term basketball prognosticators who peg him as a possible first overall NBA draft pick in two or three years. Purdue sophomore Carsen Edwards had a big game with 12 points, four assists and four rebounds in 18 minutes. "It hasn't happened before and I think some of us just didn't even know what to make of it".

Okeke led Italy with 14 points to go with 10 rebounds while Oxilia had a double-double of his own with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

A massive fire is consuming a construction site in Oakland
A crane that towers over the site is spinning around the top of the burning building, forcing crews to back away. Firefighters battled the blistering fire, which sent embers shooting onto a neighboring house.

A Kevin Huerter (Maryland/Clifton Park, N.Y.) basket made the score 17-4, and an Edward's, 3, followed by a basket from Huerter and 3 from Louis King (Hudson Catholic H.S./Columbus, N.J.) ballooned the United States of America lead to 25-8 at the end of the first 10 minutes. 6-foot-11 UNLV signee Brandon McCoy, the team's second leading scorer, added eight points and seven caroms.

The USA pounded the glass and grabbed 62 rebounds, including 30 offensive boards, and outrebounded Canada by nine.

Wiggins posted a photo of Canada's winning team on his Instagram account with the caption: "Congratulations to Team Canada for making history on winning the #FIBAU19 World Cup Championship".

The U.S. closed the gap to six points, but for every comeback attempt the United States of America mounted, Canada fought off the rally to earn the win. But the USA's gold medal hopes were hurt by frigid shooting as the US made just 32.9 percent of its field goal attempts (28-85 FGs), and was only 25-of-43 (.581 percent) from the foul line.
