In Group A, France defeated Czech Republic 97-77 and clinched the top spot in the group, as well as a place in the Quarter-Finals, while Team USA bounced back in comfortable fashion after their loss to France and blew out Iran 120-66.

Team USA and Czech Republic will square off in the final game of group play to determine who will finish second in Group A and automatically advance to the Quarter-Finals.

The loser will be the third place team and still have a chance to advance to the Quarter-Finals.

A draw will take place following the conclusion of the Group Phase to determine the pairings of the bracket for the Quarter-Finals.

The winners of the groups (3 teams) and the second-placed team with the best result (1 team) from the Group Phase are placed in one pot (D), while the two remaining second-placed teams and two best third-placed teams are placed in another pot (E).

Teams from the same group in the Group Phase cannot be drawn against each other in the Quarter-Finals, per FIBA.
