Team USA took on the host country of Greece at the FIBA U19 World Championships on Saturday, and it turns out home court advantage is not enough to overcome the stars and stripes on Independence Day.

In the tournament semifinals, Team USA beat Greece 82–76 with 30 points from incoming Villanova freshman Jalen Brunson, but the two most spectacular points of the game came from five-star prospect Jayson Tatum.

Tatum threw down a vicious dunk that sent his Greek defender falling to the floor and had the announcer shouting in excitement.
