Team USA on a trip to Cuba

It’s not really a surprise, Team USA completed its first qualifying phase for the 2023 World Cup with a big success on the Cuba side (64-87). The Americans were still led after 10 minutes (16-14), but their response was not long in coming.

Winners 28-14 of the 2nd quarter, Jim Boylen’s men notably relied on Xavier Munford, a 30-year-old fullback who was playing in the NBL this season, to reverse the trend. Behind the Galloway-Jenkins-Jackson trio, it was he who came out on top with 24 points in 23 minutes at 10/12 shooting.

“We got together 11 days ago and our team was focused, our guys were great, we worked on the basics and we improved every day. I think we played well, the ball moved well, we grew together and we were there for each other. Tonight we lose the first quarter, but we responded well in the second.rejoiced Jim Boylen.
