U.S. bounces back, tops Spain to claim bronze medal in World Cup

Nate Darling scored 12 points for Canada as it defeated Italy 79-60 in the final of the U19 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday. Washington was just 1-for-5 from the field and had 3 points and 2 rebounds.

A day after he poured in 38 points against the Americans, Barrett, a 17-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., earned tournament MVP honours.

Payton Pritchard (Oregon/West Linn, Ore.) connected on back-to-back 3s to help the US keep pace with Canada, and following a traditional 3-point play by Louis King (Hudson Catholic H.S./Columbus, N.J.) with 54 seconds left, the score was tied 42-42.

Winners of the 2013 and 2015 U19 World Cups, the United States of America will meet Spain (5-1) in Sunday's bronze medal game at 1 p.m. EDT.

Barrett - ranked as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2019 although he could reclassify to 2018 - had 18 points, 12 rebounds and four assists in the gold medal game. Auburn sophomore Austin Wiley had 19 points and 10 rebounds.

Germany refused to fold and although the US built a 28-20 in the second quarter, Germany kept it close and at halftime the Americans led 33-31. I think we just battled today.




While always a factor at global age-group championships for both men and women, Canada has always found it impossible to leapfrog the United States at the highest of levels.

Barrett, a 6-foot-7 wing who has Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Arizona, and IN among some of his early recruiting leaders, was 10-of-18 from the field, 2-of-6 from the ac and 12-of-15 at the free-throw line.

The U.S. will meet Spain on Sunday for third place.

In the fall, Rana and Henry will try to lead Ryerson to the team's third straight Ontario University Athletics title. The Americans had a 51-35 rebound advantage. "Nobody should have that many points on us", said Pritchard.

Canada's 99 points were the most given up by a U.S. team since the 2011 U19 World Cup when Lithuania scored 105 in a 107-105 overtime loss to the USA.
