BOX SCORE

BILBAO, Spain -- James Harden scored 17 points, Stephen Curry added 14 and the unbeaten U.S. national team wrapped up pool play with a 95-71 victory over Ukraine on Thursday at the Basketball World Cup.

Anthony Davis finished with 12 points for the Americans, who were still waiting out the final results from Group D in the Canary Islands to determine who they would play Saturday night in Barcelona. They would draw the fourth-place finisher in the round of 16.

The margin was far closer than the U.S. result against a methodical Ukraine team coached by former NBA coach Mike Fratello, but the Americans were never in any danger of losing in the second half after seizing control just before halftime.
