ESPNU & ESPN3 pick up remaining FIBA U-19 games

Team USA has been dominant in teh U19 tournament. the squad has been winning the games by an average of 30+ points, and they look to be the heads on favorite headed into the finals. The only problem, no one has been reporting on them. Unless you visit the Team USA Basketball site, or unless you follow FIBA, then you'd have no idea the U19 tourney was airing at the moment. ESPN3 has decided to solve that dilemma in the states. ESPN3 has picked up both of Friday's quarterfinal matches, the semifinals, and the championship game. They will also air the Team USA Quarterfinal game Friday night on ESPNU. Here's the details from ESPN Media Zone.
