Team USA suffered their second consecutive defeat at the world championship in China.
The Americans lost to Serbia in the game for 5-8 places with a score of 89:94.
Thus, the American team is a 7th or 8th place that will be her worst result at these events. At the 2002 world Cup, the U.S. team was sixth.
Back to back losses to France/Serbia means USA Basketball has logged it's worst result ever in FIBA World Cup /World Championship history (no better than 7th). Hopefully this serves as a wakeup call for how much the world has caught up (no one wants to hear your roster excuses)
