John Calipari's U.S. squad survives challenge from Germany in U19 World Cup

Half of his 10 rebounds were on the offensive glass while playing 22 minutes.

University of New Mexico Lobo coach Paul Weir is an assistant coach on Team Canada, which advances to play Team USA in Saturday's semifinals at 12:30 p.m. We don't have any weak links on this team.

Behind a defense that wreaked havoc in the second half, and a 19-point, 10-rebound double-double by Austin Wiley (Auburn), the U.S. battled to the win.

Trailing 12-11 after Isaac Bonga hit a 3 for Germany, the U.S. scored six straight points to regain the lead, and following a basket from Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech) with two seconds remaining the quarter, the United States of America had a 19-13 lead after the first 10 minutes. And then came the avalanche: Hamidou Diallo, and then Cameron Reddish, and then center Austin Wiley and guard Immanuel Quickley.

The GOP Twitter account and Hillary Clinton got into a Twitter back-and-forth today because apparently 2016 will never ever end. The GOP even found a clip to use for the objective of presenting Bill Clinton's thoughts on Obamacare, which is seen below.


United States of America trailed 37-35 in the third quarter before going on a 24-4 run to settle the issue. The Americans outscore Germany 21-4 over the final 7 minutes and 20 seconds of the quarter.

"It was just a real physical game", Wiley said.

"We guarded", Calipari said.

Team USA's biggest test yet in the 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup turned into just another blowout for the Americans, this time an 81-59 victory over Germany in the quarterfinals Friday. His father, Rowan, played at St. John's in the mid-1990s and also for the Canadian national team.

Ms Trump did not seem to make any major contribution to the session on African migration and health during her father's absence. Kushner was in a bilateral meeting with Trump on Friday when he met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.


Wiley is the only American averaging a double-double with 10.2 points and 10.2 rebounds in a mere 17.8 minutes per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor and 62 percent from the foul line. "We kept pressuring and pressuring them, and eventually they folded, so that was good from us". In the second half, all those guys that have been starting, played well. Cameron [Reddish] played better in the second half.

Wiley had six points and three rebounds in the first half, as Team USA took a two-point advantage into the break at 33-31.

Diallo finished with eight points, three rebounds and two assists. Additionally, the USA force Germany into 23 turnovers that led to 20 points.
