Jimmer Fredette, Team USA win FIBA's 3x3 AmeriCup gold medal

Jimmer Fredette now knows what it’s like to win a 3×3 gold medal with USA Basketball. He’s hoping it’s the first of many. Fredette’s 2-pointer — that’s what beyond-the-arc shots are worth in the 3-on-3 game — with 1:07 remaining was the clinching basket in a 21-18 win over Puerto Rico in the title game of the FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup on Sunday night. “It’s amazing,” Fredette said. “How fun is that, to be able to win gold and bring it home for the U.S. against some really good competition, some really stout teams. These guys are good. They play well. They play hard. We had to play against some really good basketball teams. It was great to be able to come away with a victory.”
