Barrett, the young phenom from Mississauga and the son of longtime national team standout Rowan Barrett, had 18 points, 12 rebounds and four assists in the gold-medal game as Canada led from start to finish. We came here to not only play for the gold, but win the gold, and to play like we did and have Canada come out and play so well, it was just disappointing that we couldn't get it done.

Following a Barrett basket, Canada led 15-14 with 2:33 left in the first quarter.

Barrett, a 6-foot-7 wing who has Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Arizona, and IN among some of his early recruiting leaders, was 10-of-18 from the field, 2-of-6 from the ac and 12-of-15 at the free-throw line. The Americans had a 62-53 rebound advantage and grabbed 30 offensive boards leading to 22 second-chance points. "Nobody should have that many points on us", said Pritchard.

The U.S. will meet Spain on Sunday for third place.
