Chris Duhon played all 40 minutes (the only player to do so) and bombed away from outside, hitting five of 12 three-point attempts, on his way to 19 points. More importantly, Chris finished with a tremendous 14 assists. Troy Bell was high scorer with 24 points.

Down by five at halftime, the USA team came up with a big third quarter, outscoring Crotia 27-12. Congrats to all the players on Team USA!
