USA Wins Bronze in Pan-Am Games
Behind a balanced scoring effort that saw all 12 USA players score, including five in double digits, the USA men’s team persevered and fought to a well earned 94-92 bronze medal game victory over the Dominican Republic Sunday at the CODE Dome.
“I’m excited about this. It’s our first medal since 1999 and I’m really proud of our guys for bouncing back after a tough loss yesterday and coming out and playing hard this morning,” said USA coach Nate Tibbetts.
The bronze medal showing by the USA was the U.S. men’s first media in a Pan American Games since 1999 when that team also won silver. The Americans have now earned a medal in 13 of their 16 Pan Am Games appearances, including a record eight golds, as well as three silvers and two bronze.
