USA head coach Mo McHone saw his squad open preliminary play with an impressive defensive effort that limited Panama to 34.8 percent shooting as the U.S. rumbled to a 94-72 victory. The USA got 18 points from Alex Scales and 14 more from Jerome Beasley. Meeting gold medal favorite Brazil, the USA stunned the Brazilians 96-94. Brazil led 94-93 with 6.4 seconds left, but USA guard Lynn Greer was fouled with 1.2 seconds left as he attempted a 3-pointer, then calmly made all three free throws to give the U.S. the 96-94 win. Charlie Bell scored 20 points in the win, Scales added 18. Canada handed the U.S. a
92-76 setback as the Americans shot just 43.1 percent. Greer led the U.S. effort with 21 points. Playing its fourth game in as many days, the USA had the ball and trailed by one with 17.2 seconds to go but was unable to get off a shot as Venezuela hung on to take a 71-70 decision. Bell led the U.S. with 21.

Opening second round play facing host Dominican Republic in front of its partisan crowd, behind double figure scoring from six players, including 20 points from Bell, the USA posted an impressive 111-86 win. Facing Argentina next, Argentina pulled away late and earned an 84-67 victory. Tyus Edney and Kris Lang scored 11 points each. Needing a win to keep its medal and qualifying berth dreams alive, the USA rallied in the final five minutes to take a 91-77 victory from Uruguay. Bell led the USA effort with 20 points and McGhee finished with 19 points. With a qualification berth to the 2006 FIBA World Championship earned and a spot guaranteed in the semifinals, the USA rested some of its key players and came up short 88-83 against Puerto Rico. Beasley led the USA effort with 18 points.

Brazil made 10 of its first 20 3-point shots while the USA made just two 3-balls the entire night and the combination resulted in a 93-75 loss for the U.S. in its semifinal contest. Lang, who played just 19 minutes before suffering a sprained ankle midway through the third quarter, finished with 14 points and nine rebounds, and McGhee was credited with 13 points.

Playing its 10th game in 12 days, despite 30 points (13-18 FGs) and 14 rebounds from Lang, the U.S. was unable to overcome Venezuela's clutch shooting and fell 93-83 in the bronze medal game

Brazil claimed the gold medal with an impressive 100-88 victory over Argentina in the gold medal game.
