LONDON — The United States men's wheelchair basketball team will play for the bronze after falling to Australia, 72-63, in the semifinal round Thursday.
The Americans will compete against Great Britain on Friday for the bronze medal, followed by the gold medal game between Australia and Canada.
Co-captain Paul Schulte, 33, of the Bradenton Florida Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, scored eight points and dished out five assists in 18 minutes of action.
Defending gold medalist Jason Smyth, of the LDS Church's Belfast Northern Ireland Stake, qualified for Friday's final in the 200-meter race in the T13 division with a time of 21.48 seconds.
Smyth, legally blind, won gold and set a world record in the 100-meter sprint last week.
