THE REST OF THE WORLD PERCEIVES EVIL EMPIRE DIFFERENTLY. The country that invented the game brings another gold home.
The U.S. now owns a record four gold medals and one bronze at the FIBA U19 Worlds and has posted a 49-11 all-time record in U19 World Championship play. Argentina (6-3) claimed its first medal at this event with a 58-51 victory over Canada (4-5) in the bronze medal game.
I found the team roster. The frequency count for birth dates doesn't confirm the Outliers conjecture. Eligibility for this tournament includes being born on or after 1 January 1990. Four of the twelve players had a birth date before March 31, not my point estimate of six. Another two were born in the third quarter of 1990 and one in the fourth quarter. Two more have birth dates in the first quarter of 1991, with one each in the second, third, and fourth quarters.
