The USA team must have had a good talking to from head coach Phil Handy as they came out firing on all cylinders. They scored 20 more points than the world team in quarter 3 and that's when they broke free. The momentum continued into the 4th and they were unstoppable. The game finished with Williamson attempting some impressive dunk but was unable to make them stick.
