WCH 2018 M: USA take the bronze!

569 0

The third place and a bronze medal went to the boys from the United States.

 

At the start of the game, both sides showed a huge desire to finish the tournament with a bronze medal. After a long battle in the first set, Serbia have managed to win it after being much more focused at the end of the set, 25-23.

There were so many mistakes at the start of the third set, the USA made it fewer and got an 8-5 lead at the first TTO. As it seemed, the Serbian boys didn't have enough energy to make a comeback and John Speraw's side easily tied the game. 

The third set was a decisive highlight of the game. Serbia had two three points, however, the USA saved them all and in an extended set, they took the lead in sets.

It had an influence on the Serbian boys, who didn't manage to recover and to push the game to the tie-break. They surrendered and let the USA win the bronze.

Matthew Anderson had a great display, scoring 29 points in this game. It was the second time the USA beat Serbia in this tournament...

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
