TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Dongguan (dpa) - top favorite USA has sensationally eliminated in the quarterfinals at the World Basketball Championship in China. The previously undefeated defending champion lost in Dongguan to France with 79:89 (39:45).

The five-time world champion missed by the first defeat in a major tournament since the 2006 World Cup not only the semi-finals, but also the chance to become the first team three times in succession championship champion.

The French, who defeated Germany 78-74 in the preliminary round, now face Argentina. The South Americans had also prevailed unexpectedly against title aspirant Serbia the day before and hope for the first World Cup medal since 2002. The US only play for places five to eight.
