USA - Brazil 81-78
USA outsmarted Brazil 81-78 winning the Gold in San Antonio. USA had to work very hard in order to take the Big Final and they made it. It means that USA finished FIBA Americas U18 Championship with perfect 5-0 record. Silver medal belongs to Brazil. It is important to mention that both teams booked a spot for 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship. Kyrie Irving (191-G) shined for USA with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. He was the MVP of this meeting with valuation 28. Austin Rivers (191-G) helped with 19 points, while Vander Blue (191-G) added 13. Quincy Miller-Scott (203-F/C-93) registered double-double of 11 points and 12 boards. In Brazil, Lucas Nogueira (212-C-92) shined with 22 points and 14 boards. Felipe Vezaro (190-G-92) followed him with 17 pts. USA grabbed the title thanks to great performance in the last quarter. The Americans entered to the last ten minutes with 5-point deficit, but they managed to tie the score quickly and later finished Q4 with 23-15. Of course, that was enough for the Gold in San Antonio. Before the last period, everything looked good for Brazil who was 34-35- up at the half time (22-15 Q1, 12-20 Q2). In third frame both teams were on fire, but Canadians scored 28, while USA stopped on 24 pts. However, that was not enough for Canada as Kyrie Irving and his teammates exploded in the last ten minutes taking the Gold medal on this prestigious event. In 2008, USA failed in the Finals against Argentina.
