John Calipari’s Team USA Loss was just that; A Team Loss

John Calipari has been taking a lot of criticism for his Team USA Under-19 loss in the semifinals to Canada.

If it wasn’t bad coaching, people are saying Cal picked a bad team.

Mike DeCourcy breaks down the reason the team lost, the fair and unfair criticism, and ultimately the main reason Canada eventually won gold.

USA didn’t perform and Canada’s R.J. Barrett was too much to handle.

Calipari could have made all the correct moves in that Canada game, though, and the United States still might have lost because of how poorly the team performed. That will not electrify the Twitter world, and it won’t help anyone in recruiting. But it’s the truth.

The best news for Kentucky fans in my opinion is that Barrett could be wearing blue one day.
