The USA efforts was paced by PJ Washington (Findlay Prep/Las Vegas, Nev.) who finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds, while Pritchard added 16 points, Austin Wiley (Auburn/Hoover, Ala.) scored 13 points and grabbed a USA U19 single-game record-tying 17 rebounds, and Edwards finished with 12 points. Kibab and Brampton ON's Danilo Djuricic each hauled in 10 rebounds, helping Canada to a 71-46 rebounding edge.

The USA built its biggest lead of the game at 28-18 with 9:05 remaining in the first half, but Canada ended the half on a 27-14 run to take a 45-42 advantage into halftime.

We came here to not only play for the gold, but win the gold, and to play like we did and have Canada come out and play so well, it was just disappointing that we couldn't get it done. Purdue's Carson Edwards paced the USA with 13 points, while Payton Pritchard of OR followed with 12 points. And the Canadians led 24-10 after 10 minutes - also because they dominated the glass with as many offensive rebounds (eight) as Italy had total boards.

But the USA's gold medal hopes were hurt by frigid shooting as the United States of America made just 32.9 percent of its field goal attempts (28-85 FGs), and was only 25-of-43 (.581 percent) from the foul line.
