  • R.J. Barrett's 38 points helped Canada defeat the United States on Saturday to advance to the gold medal game against Italy

Five-star prospect R.J. Barrett, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2019, delivered a monster performance Saturday as Canada shocked the United States in the semifinals of the FIBA U19 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt.

Huerter connected on two of his four field goal attempts and added four points and five rebounds in the victory over Spain. But it was a second consecutive disappointing game for United Kingdom redshirt freshman guard Hamidou Diallo, who had only eight points on 2-for-11 shooting.

US guard Payton Pritchard (Oregon/West Linn, Ore.) was selected to the five-member All-Tournament team, joining Canada's R.J. Barrett and Abu Kigab, and Italy's Tommaso Oxilia and Lorenzo Bucarelli. He didn't score a point, the first time that he failed to score in the tournament. For USA head coach John Calipari and the rest of his team, it was the first loss since 2011 when Paul Hewitt was the coach, as noted by Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. In the gold medal game, in which Canada defeated Italy 79-60, Kigab scored 15 points on 38.5 percent shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds. I think we just battled today.

Italy outscored Canada 12-10 in the final quarter but it mattered little as Canada wrapped up the title in style.

The U.S. squad scored 17 of the first 21 points and jumped out to a 25-6 lead after the first quarter.

The US claimed third place with a comprehensive 96-72 success over Spain, while Germany finished fifth by beating Lithuania 80-74.
