Mike Tobey and Team USA are just one win away from becoming world champions.

The United States will play for gold Sunday after dismantling Lithuania 100-66 in Saturday's semifinal.

The Americans will face Serbia in the final. The U.S. beat Serbia by just nine points, its closest result in the Tournament thus far, in pool play last Wednesday.

Tobey made the most of his minutes Saturday. The Virginia sophomore center scored six points and pulled down six rebounds in just seven minutes of action late in the game.

Marcus Smart led Team USA with 18 points and Justice Winslow added 15 points and nine rebounds.
