Since it was first contested in 2010, the United States team has not lost a single game at the FIBA Under-17 World Championships of Basketball. And, those winning ways continued this past weekend in Dubai.
On Friday, Team USA won their first game of the tournament over Greece by a score of 83-73, and they followed it up on Saturday with a dominating 99-56 win over Angola. USA will next play the Philippines later this morning.
And, there’s one very notable score line from the tournament. Italy took on host nation United Arab emirates, and they destroyed the home team by a margin of 111 points--138 to 27. Ouch!
