Winning streak ends: U.S. Men’s Basketball loses to France 89-79 in World Cup quarters
DONGGUAN, China— No gold. No medal. No more winning streak. The U.S. reign atop international basketball has ended — this time, thwarted by France at the World Cup. For the first time since 2006, the U.S. sent NBA players to a major international tournament and won't win gold. Evan Fournier scored 22 points, Rudy Gobert had 21 points and 16 rebounds and France beat the U.S. 89-79 in the World Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday, rallying from a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit to pull off the upset.
