USA Wins 2010 FIBA World Basketball Championship With Win Over Turkey

A young Team USA has won the country’s first FIBA world basketball championship in 16 years.

Kevin Durant scored 28 points – including seven 3-pointers – as the United States beat the tournament’s host, Turkey, 81-64 in the gold medal game in Istanbul last Sunday.

The game capped off a perfect tournament for Team USA, which won all five of its group games before going 4-0 in the knockout stage.

Durant, 21, was named the tournament’s MVP. The team featured no players from the United States’ 2008 gold-medal-winning Olympic squad, and half of its 12 members are younger than 23.

The victory makes the United States an automatic qualifier for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. It also wraps up a remarkable 25 months for Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski, whose Duke Blue Devils won an NCAA title last spring between the United States’ victories in Beijing and Istanbul.

Team USA last won the FIBA World Championship in 1994, when it beat Russia in the final.

MLB All-Star Game Memorable Moments

The Major League Baseball All-Star Game, also known as the “Midsummer Classic“, is an annual baseball game between players from the National League (NL) and the American League (AL), currently selected by a combination of fans, players, coaches, and managers. The All-Star Game usually occurs on the second Tuesday in July and marks the symbolic halfway point in the Major League Baseball (MLB) season (though not the mathematical halfway point; in most seasons, that actually takes place one week earlier). The game is usually played on a Tuesday, with no regular-season games scheduled on the day before or the day after. These are the only two calendar days in the year in which no regular-season or preseason games in any of the major professional sports leagues of the United States are scheduled. From 1959 to 1962, two All-Star Games were held each season, but this format was abandoned.

We’ve made a PowerPoint presentation and a video to recall the memorable moments of MLB All-Star Game, enjoy!
