The U.S. basketball team dropped to 1-1 at the Pan Am games with an 86-85 loss to Puerto Rico. Missouri senior Arthur Johnson had 15 points and lead Team USA with eight rebounds. Fellow Tiger, Rickey Paulding, left the game after just eight minutes of play when he banged his knee. Paulding hit the game-winning shot against Argentina on Saturday. If the United States wants to remain in medal contention they’ll have to beat Uruguay this afternoon. Mizzou head coach Quin Snyder is an assistant coach on the team, which is led by Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo.
