HR Anaheim, ieldar(16). 000 Oil 1003 11 1 NEW YORK (AP) In just five days, the U.S. basketball team at the Goodwill Games went from outclassed to pure gold. The team of 12 college players capped a wild week at Madison Square Garden by standing with gold medals draped around their necks, hands over their hearts and the national anthem resounding in their ears. "It's great for the team because we were doubted by a lot of people," forward Wally Szczerbiak of Miami of Ohio said after the 93-85 overtime win over Australia in Friday night's championship game. "To come out and play like this and do something that hasn't been done since 1986 is just great." It had been 12 years since a team of amateurs won a major international basketball competition for the United States. That would have been the inaugural Goodwill Games, which also were the World Championships that year. Since then, Dream Teams have won gold in the Olympics and World Championships, while the college guys managed only silver and bronze in the 1990 and 1994 Goodwill Games. Things started rough for the latest group of collegians wearing the red, white and blue. They blew a 19-point second-half lead to Puerto Rico in the opening-game loss. Then came a tougher-than-expected outing against China in which the U.S. team pulled away with a late run. That was followed by impressive outings against Brazil in the final preliminary game to clinch a spot in the medal round and another in the semifinals against Lithuania. It was all capped off by the win over Australia. "When we first got here it was really difficult to adapt to Coach Haskins' system," Utah guard Andre Miller said. "There was a lot of and guys weren't playing team ball. The loss to Puerto Rico was just inexperience. We weren't prepared and ready when they came back. That loss kind of helped us. Now we're sitting here with gold medals and all we can do is smile." Miller, who led the Utes to the Final Four in March, took over the game at the end of regulation. He scored the United States' last six points in regulation, including' the tying basket with 1:08 left He gave the U.S. team the lead for good at 81-79 with the first basket of overtime. He finished with 18 points, 10 in the final four minutes of regulation and the first 2 minutes of overtime. "All I coutd think of was that gold medal," Miller said. "I picked up my defense, they made some turnovers and missed some 3s and we were able to capitalize on it." Australia was led by its veteran backcourt of Shane Heal, who had 38 points, and Andrew Gaze, who had 25. Their 3-point shooting kept Australia in front most of the way, but neither hit from beyond the arc in the final 6Vi minutes of regulation and overtime. Heal, who played with the Minnesota Timberwolves, finished 8-of-16 from 3-point range, while Gaze, who led Seton Hall to the 1989 NCAA championship game, was 3-of-13. "You can't shoot from 26 feet at an 80 percent for a whole game, that's basketball," said Heal, who had all but two of his points in the opening 33 minutes. "For us to win Andrew and I had to step up and make big shots. I started out warm. It felt good to play well but to lose is hard and pretty disappointing." Szczerbiak and Elton Brand of Duke each had 15 points for the United States, while James Posey of Xavier added 13. Szczerbiak finished as the team's leading scorer in the five games with a 17.2 average, just ahead of Brand's 17.0. Miller was the pnly other player to average in double figures at 10.8. "This was special," said Brand, who led the team with 7.6 rebounds per game. "Everyone knows we won the gold." SAN JOSE GIANTS Transferred INF Joel Fuentea to Bakerafield.
