Team USA is through to the Round of 16 after going 3-0 during the group stage at the FIBA U19 World Championships. Of course, 16 teams were invited, so the group stages served to seed the 16-team knockout round, which begins Wednesday. The 3-0 record basically gives Team USA and Caleb Swanigan a No.1 seed and a game against the fourth place team from group B: Argentina.
Wednesday's Round of 16 games are as follow:
Tunisia - Greece
A U.S. victory means a quarterfinal game against either Italy or the Dominican Republic. Turkey, Canada, and host Greece all went 3-0 in the group stage with the host Greeks being Team USA's most likely opponent. Here is the live stream to watch the game right here:
