March Madness is months away, but another basketball bracket is nearing completion with the semifinals of the 2023 FIBA World Cup set to be played. One of the four teams remaining is Team USA, which is seeking a sixth world championship.

The U.S. roster features familiar NBA names like Anthony Edwards of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jalen Brunson of the New York Knicks, Paolo Banchero of the Orlando Magic and other All-Star-caliber players. Heavy favorites entering the tournament, the team got a wake-up call on Sunday after suffering its first loss in group play of the World Cup since 2002, falling 110-104 to Lithuania to finish second in Group C.

Team USA (5-1) returned to form in the quarterfinals with a dominant 100-63 victory over Italy. They advanced to the semifinals to face Germany, the lone unbeaten team in the tournament. Germany (6-0) edged Latvia 81-70 in the quarterfinals to reach the semis for the second time in team history, having been led to the bronze medal in 2002 by Dirk Nowitzki.   

Germany is led by Los Angeles Lakers guard Dennis Schroder, who is averaging 19.8 points and 6.8 assists per game during the tournament. The team also features Franz and Moe Wagner of the Orlando Magic and Daniel Theis of the Indiana Pacers.
