Led by USA head coach Don Showalter, who upped his overall U17 record to 23-0 after having led the 2010 and 2012 squads to gold, the U.S. was paced by eventual FIBA U17 MVP Malik Newman’s 14.9 points and 3.0 assists a game. Joining Newman on the five-member U17 World Championship All-Tournament Team was Diamond Stone, who added 13.4 points and a team-best 9.7 rebounds per game.

The USA, which had a well-rounded scoring effort that saw five players average in double-digits, never trailed in its first five games and lagged behind for just 8:19 in its final two contests.
Paced by Stone’s 22 points and 10 boards, the U.S. earned an 83-73 opening victory over a strong Greek squad on Aug. 8.

The USA ran away with a 99-56 win over Angola as all 12 athletes scored, led by 14 points from Harry Giles on Aug. 10.

Closing preliminary play on Aug. 11, the USA earned a 124-64 victory over Philippines, paced by 16 points apiece from Josh Jackson and Newman.

Behind Jayson Tatum’s 19 points, the U.S. jumped out 22-0 and dispatched Japan 122-38 in its Aug. 12 round of 16 game.

The Americans downed China 113-71 in the Aug. 14 quarterfinals behind 21 points and 10 rebounds from 6-foot-10 Henry Ellenson.

After holding onto a narrow 39-36 edge at halftime, the U.S. broke away from previously unbeaten Serbia to take an 89-68 semifinal win behind a team-high 15 points from Newman.

Advancing to the finals against an Australian squad that came back from a 22-point deficit to earn an 80-74 overtime win over Spain in its semifinal game, the U.S. had its work cut out for it. However, behind 21 points and 11 rebounds from Newman, the red, white and blue held off Australia 99-92 to claim the gold medal.

The USA fell behind by 10 points early, but slowly chipped away at Australia’s lead and went up for good, 28-27, to close out the first quarter. However, each time the USA tried to pull away, Australia, which hit 11 3s in the game, battled back. It was no different when the USA held its final double-digit lead of the game, 92-82. Australia again began launching 3-pointers, three of which hit their mark and with 30.1 seconds left the USA’s edge was down to 96-91. However, the Americans would not let the Aussies any closer and held on for the gold medal victory.

Serbia earned the bronze medal after a narrow 62-59 victory over Spain.
