  • France Hands Team USA First International Loss Since 2006

It ends the 58-game winning streak the U.S. - using National Basketball Association players during that stretch - had in global tournaments.

According to Aris Barkas of Eurohoops, Mitchell was asked after the game about those who made a decision to skip out on the Team USA experience.

Gobert led the way for the French with 21 points and 16 rebounds.

The last time they failed to do so was back at the 2006 World Cup as they won a bronze medal.

The only positive they will take from the tournament is that they have qualified for next year's Olympics in Tokyo alongside Australia, Argentina, Spain, France, Iran and Nigeria.

"This win won't mean much if we don't win the gold".

To the surprise of nobody around here, Mitchell, still only 23 years old, emerged as an authentic, conscientious leader for Team USA.

Coach Gregg Popovich deflected talk about his missing megastars after Team USA's glorious run in major competition came to a juddering halt on Wednesday at the hands of France.

France had been 0-9 against the U.S.in major worldwide play before Wednesday's win.

None of the U.S. players who played that afternoon in Rio are on this year's World Cup team. The thrilling game featured 12 lead changes.

Going small did not correspond to an increased effectiveness in defending ball screens; Ntilikina still managed a huge 3-pointer to tie the game at 76-all with 4:30 left, and Fournier beat Mitchell for the bucket that put France ahead for good at 78-76. He was averaging 14.6 points per game, the best scoring average on the team. Marcus Smart made three free throws after getting fouled by Gobert to put the US back on top, and the Americans took a 66-63 lead into the fourth. With a 13 to 9 offensive rebound advantage and a 44 to 28 total rebound advantage, Gobert and France controlled the glass from start to finish. And it did not make the US more dynamic on offense, save for a burst of brilliance from Mitchell in the third quarter that allowed the Americans to grab the lead for a short period.

That's not to say that they were not talented, of course.

Australia's win over the Czech Republic in the other quarterfinal on Wednesday gave France something else to celebrate - an Olympic berth.

The U.S. will face fellow upset victim Serbia in Thursday's fifth-place consolation game.
