2019 FIBA World Cup schedule, scores: Spain tops Argentina for championship; Team USA gets bounced in quarterfinals

The 2019 FIBA World Cup is officially in the books as Spain defeated Argentina to take home the gold. France beat Australia on Sunday as well to earn bronze, while Serbia defeated the Czech Republic to earn fifth place. Rounding out the top eight was Team USA in seventh place and Poland in eighth. 

The tournament, which was moved from 2018 to 2019 so that it wasn't held on the same year as the FIFA soccer World Cup, had major implications for all of the 32 countries involved, as it served as qualification for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. There were seven teams -- two from the Americas, two from Europe and one each from the Africa, Asia and Oceania regions -- that qualified for Tokyo based on their finish at the World Cup. Those teams are Spain, France, Australia, Argentina, Team USA, Iran and Nigeria.
