"My initial thought was if you were arrogant enough like at times US is to just take your D-league players and think that they're gonna beat like the best worldwide competition there is, I would say that's arrogance", he said.
France went blow-for-blow with the Americans in the final quarter to advance to the semifinals with an 89-79 victory. "And in this situation, it hurts more".

Jayson Tatum missed Wednesday's matchup with an ankle injury, and Marcus Smart finishing the morning as Team USA's No. 2 scorer is a clear sign something was amiss. Mitchell has plenty of experience as a lead guard in big moments, carrying Utah in the postseason both as a rookie in 2018 and in his second National Basketball Association season past year.
That's not to say that they were not talented, of course. Team USA faces Serbia on Thursday in the fifth- to eighth-place bracket.

France took advantage of mismatches again, and Team USA went away from Mitchell - he didn't score in the fourth.
This will be the first time the United States have failed to win a medal at the World Cup since 2002, when they finished sixth. This version of Team USA will bear no resemblance to the squad that will play in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
