USA  was looking forward to grab the gold at the FIBA world cup this year but not everything went according to plan. The team got ousted by France after being nearly unbeatable.

This is the first time the team failed at capturing gold at a major international event since the 2006 world championships. France beat the team 89-79, in the quarterfinals. USA has now kissed goodbye to the gold.

In the quarter final match, Evan Fournier scored 22 points, Rudy Gobert scored 21 and 16 rebounds. It is unbelievable that the win streak of USA came to an end. The team had won 58 consecutive tournament games in FIBA and Olympic competition with NBA Players.

US was about to create history by winning three consecutive world cups after winning three Olympic golds. But France stole that dream away by beating the team. In the tournament that took place in China, now the team can only finish in the fifth spot.

Gobert is disappointed by the loss. He said that the team had come here to win the gold. But in the end If you do not win then it doesn’t count.

The turning point in the game was when Americans came scoreless on the six consecutive possessions. They did not take control and France took over from there.

Their season sadly came to an end. And even though many are speculating about who was there on the team and who wasn’t. But Coach Pop believes on how to focus on what you have.

In the first half France was 21-12, even when Gobert  found his way to the line many times he couldn’t capitalize on it. Even after the free throws Gobert had for US and the lead into the fourth the team came up short.

The loss is hard on the team that is used to winning matches and tournaments.
