Manila, Philippines –A late comeback by the United States wasn’t enough to overcome a big third quarter by Germany as the Americans lost in the FIBA World Cup semifinal, 113-111.

“We got outrebounded all night,” said guard Anthony Edwards, who had 23 points and tried to lead a late comeback.

“They were more physical than us. The team was missing toughness”

The U.S. cut the lead to one in the final two minutes after Germany got up by as much as 12. But a 3-pointer by Andreas Obst, that last of his 24 points and four 3-pointers, held off the American charge.
