Default Team USA opposite Argentina in FIBA Americas draw

TICKER reports: Beleaguered Team USA will play in the same group as Brazil and across from defending Olympic champion Argentina in this summer's FIBA Americas Championship.

The draw for the 10-team international tournament to determine two berths in the 2008 Olympics was announced Wednesday. The United States will play 10 games in 12 days and must qualify for the gold medal game to avoid a third round of qualifying.

Despite using NBA and pro players, the Americans have not won an international event since the 2003 FIBA Americas in Puerto Rico. They won bronze in the 2004 Olympics, did not claim a medal in the 2005 FIBA Americas and again won bronze in the World Championships last summer.
