The Spanish team had always been superior to their opponents and take home the much desired gold medal.
Spain is the basketball world champion! Spain defeated Argentina 95-75 this Sunday in the final and won gold in a World Cup for the second time in their history.
After their triumph in 2006, Spain is back to the top of the podium, overthrowing the USA that won the last two World Championships in 2010 and 2014.
Ricky Rubio (20 points), Sergio Llull (15) and Marc Gasol (14) were the main drivers of this Spanish victory, while Gabriel Deck’s 24 points proved insufficient to keep Argentina in the fight for triumph.
