United States Reaches World Cup Semifinals

Team USA has only suffered one loss this entire road to the World Cup, and that was to Lithuania. Their main problem was size and the inability to secure rebounds.

With that said, they were ready to prove to everyone that it was a fluke; and, indeed, it was. Italy got brutalized by Mikal Bridges and Team USA.

Taking a 10-point lead after the first allowed them to continue to apply pressure and never feel pressure. It was a complete annihilation of a solid Italian team.

Bridges led the group with 24 points, but right behind him was Tyrese Haliburton. Haliburton was able to secure 18 points.

This United States team has so many options that they are able to generate massive success no matter the player, or players, lacking and not being at their best in the moment. That is why fans are witnessing dominating performances, very one-sided performances.

Tuesday’s win will now move the USA into the final four, the Semifinals, and will either be facing Germany or Latvia on Friday.

It’s expected Team USA will win the World Cup, which will crown a new winner (since Spain got eliminated) on Sunday.

As a side note, Team Canada was the team that defeated the defending champs to send them home.
