Along the way, A’ja Wilson, whose USA U19 record 30 points in the gold medal game helped earn her tournament MVP honors, became just the fourth U.S. athlete to have competed on two USA U19 teams after also claiming gold in 2013.

Opening with a 72-57 victory over Spain on July 18, the USA received 18 points and 10 rebounds from Wilson, while Napheesa Collier had 13 points and 14 boards.

The USA scored 44 points in the paint and 22 points off of 25 offensive rebounds, en route to a 88-62 win over China on July 18. Collier and Wilson tied for team-high scoring honors with 17 points apiece, and Wilson also grabbed 10 boards.

In its final preliminary game, the U.S. squad outplayed Egypt 104-41 as every member of the team scored, led by 15 points each from Mariya Moore and Shakayla Thomas.

Entering the round of 16, Wilson’s 18 points led the U.S. as it dispatched Argentina 89-39 on July 22.

Opening with an 11-0 run, the U.S. cruised past Canada 93-45 in the July 24 quarterfinals. Again every member of the team scored, led by 12 points apiece from Collier and Moore.

The USA’s inside game proved to be too much as the Americans outscored Spain 66-24 in the paint en route to a 80-65 medal semifinal victory on July 25. Collier shot 10-of-13 from the field and finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds, while Wilson had 20 points and 16 rebounds.

Played in front of a packed full and deafening arena, the USA captured the gold medal in a 78-70 fight-to-the-finish victory against host Russia to capture a record sixth-straight and seventh overall U19 gold medal on July 26.

In a game that saw six lead changes and 10 tied scores, the Americans trailed 21-19 at the end if the first quarter. Closing the half on a 9-0 run, the U.S. took a 39-34 lead at halftime and led by four points, 57-53, at the end of the third quarter.

With 4:21 to play and leading by three, 68-65, the USA scored seven-straight points for its largest lead of the night, 75-65, with 2:41 left to play and then held the Russians back in the final minutes to earn the eight-point golden victory.

Wilson was joined on the five-member all-tournament team by Collier, who had 10 points, 10 rebounds and six steals against Russia.

The USA’s strong post play provided these staggering statistics: over the seven games the squad averaged 49.1 points per game on its inside play, more than half of its 86.3 average, while limiting opponents to just 18.9 points near the basket. Further, the U.S. capped its seven games by averaging 56.9 rebounds to its opponents’ 35.3 a contest.

Australia defeated Spain 69-62 for the bronze medal.
