The game against Montenegro turned out well for Team USA in the FIBA Basketball World Cup with a flawless four-zero record. However, it might have been a tough test for the team as they faced disparity in terms of rebounding.
It’s A Tough Test For Team USA
Despite its first tough test, Team USA was able to beat Montenegro with a twelve-point win in the tournament scoring eighty-five- seventy-three and eventually moving to the esteemed quarterfinals. But the team’s tough test was exposed as they had been seen to trail off at the half for the first time, getting dominated by the game’s rebounding battle against Montenegro with forty-nine- thirty-one mark.
Prior to meeting Montenegro, Team USA was able to acquire three rebounding wins in each of its first three games at the World Cup and was even seen to be one of the better rebounding teams in the tournament. Well, Team USA has several big men but it was still a tough test as they weren’t able to bring down Montenegro with their combined rebound average.
It’s A Tough Test But Team USA’s Weaknesses Did Not Defeat The Group
Team USA’s tough test for rebounding is indeed a real issue especially when you factor in Montenegro’s first NBA-caliber big man, but the team has proven to find a way to win regardless of the tough test they encountered. With shooting, defense, and depth, no team was capable of taking advantage of them all at once.
