Team USA had three days off after dispatching Tunisia in their final Group B match.
They spent one resting and two practicing for their knockout round game with Angola, the fourth place team from Group A.
While the rest of the FIBA world is still sleeping or hatin' on this team, they are only four wins away from taking the Naismith trophy back to the States for the first time in 16 years and the automatic bid to the London Games basketball tournament that comes with it.
On their side of the tournament bracket lurks Brazil, China, Argentina, and Lithuania, but Coach K and the players like their chances.
“Today we had no contact but good enthusiasm, game like preparation and we already started putting in our game plan for Angola. The guys are healthy. I think the two days have helped us and hopefully translate into playing the kind of defense especially that we want to play,” said Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
If they handle their 11 AM EDT business in the Sinan Erdem Dome against Angola, they will take on the winner of the Russia-New Zealand game on Thursday.
