The Bedford, Texas native posted five points, five rebounds, and four blocked shots as Team USA thrashed Canada 113-79 Tuesday evening in the gold medal game of the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship. Turner’s game-high four blocks brings his total number of blocked shots to 18 in the five-game tournament, shattering the previous Team USA competition record of 13 set in 1994.
As Texas Sports reports, Turner had one heck of a tourney:
During the tournament, Turner started all five games and averaged 7.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and a team-best 3.6 blocks in just 15.4 minutes per contest. He converted 13-of-19 (.684) field goals, including 1-of-1 from three-point range, and 9-of-12 (.750) free throws. Nine of his 24 total rebounds came off the offensive glass.
With this win, Team USA went 5-0 and collected a seventh gold medal all-time at the tournament. The American team won the championship in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2006, 2010, and 2012.
Myles took to Twitter to celebrate, posting a selfie of him and his gold medal, with the caption “GUESS WHOS AN OFFICIAL GOLD MEDAL WINNER!!!” followed by seven American flag emojis. With a tweet like that, it’s impossible not to be excited for him.
