Updated to add that Gordon had 14 points and four rebounds in the USA's 100-60 win over Lithuania today. USA will face Serbia in Sunday's final at 11:15 a.m. (livebasketball.tv, espn3.com).

If Aaron Gordon keeps playing the way he is for USA Basketball's U19 team, he won't be just swimming in "monopoly money" before long. Gordon is averaging 13.4 points and 6.3 rebounds for the USA.

The USA is scheduled to face Lithuania today at 11:15 a.m. in the semifinals of the U19 World Championship after an easy win over Andrew Wiggins-less Canada in the quarterfinals.

The semifinals will be shown on livebasketball.tv and espn3.com (if you have access), as will the finals at 11:15 a.m. Sunday.

Parker Jackson-Cartwright was measured at 5-foot-10 and 146 pounds at the Nike Skills Academy.
