It was an early morning, at least on the west coast, for the USA Basketball U-19 team, but an easy one. The U.s. team cruised to an easy 92-50 win over Egypt to finish the group stage a spotless 3-0. What's even better is that Caleb Swanigan had his best game yet with 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. He was also a team best +36 when he was on the floor for only 16 minutes.

Swanigan was 5 of 6 from the floor and 3 of 5 at the free throw line and even added a blocked shot. His 13 points tied for the team high in what was a laugher of a result.

TEAM USA wins group A and will progress to the knockout rounds to face the last place team in Group B tomorrow. That team is Argentina, who was 0-3 against china, turkey, and Spain. Their second game of the knockout round would be Friday against Canada, Italy, the Dominican Republic, or South Korea.
