Matched in the Sept. 4 semifinal against 4-1 Argentina, the USA was powered to a 123-107 overtime victory thanks to a record setting effort from 6-2 guard White. White finished with a USA record 37 points (12-17 FGs, 13-15 FTs), including 13 points in overtime. The U.S. led by 21 with 6:30 left in the game, however, Argentina stormed back to take a 98-96 with 31 seconds left. White hit a jumper to even the game 96 all and overtime was forced after Argentina missed a last second shot. Tied 100 in overtime, the U.S. clinched the win with when White scored 11 points in a 13-2 USA run that sealed the win.

Facing 5-1 and host Puerto Rico and its capacity partisan crowd, Mason scored a team high 22 points and six others also scored in double figures as the USA defeated Puerto Rico 109-95 to capture first place and the gold medal. A tight contest from start to finish, the U.S. led 49-45 at halftime, and was ahead 97-91 with 2:42 to play.
