South Sudan nearly beat Team USA and here’s how it happened
Quick Glance: South Sudan's Near-Upset Reveals Blueprint for Olympic Success Against US
  • The USA narrowly avoided a loss to South Sudan in an Olympic tune-up game in London. Despite a 16-point lead by South Sudan and a close score of 101-100, it showed that defeating the USA under FIBA rules is possible.

  • LeBron James saved the game for the USA with a crucial basket in the final second. South Sudan demonstrated that beating the USA is achievable by shooting well from the field, especially on three-pointers, and causing turnovers.

  • South Sudan, although still in its infancy as a country in basketball, displayed talent and direction. Despite low odds of winning the gold medal, this performance gives South Sudan confidence to surprise at the Olympics.

  • The USA needs to prepare for challenging games to avoid potential losses. Despite the ability to handle unexpected challenges and win close games, a focused start will be crucial for success.
