Derrick Rose (No. 6) of the USA defends against Jose Barea of Puerto Rico during their game at Madison Square Garden in New York, on August 22, 2014Derrick Rose earned a spot on the final 12-man US roster of NBA stars for the Basketball World Cup after helping the Americans rip Puerto Rico 112-86. Rose sat out an exhibition victory two nights earlier over the Dominican Republic and there was concern about him after his having missed most of the past two NBA seasons due to knee surgeries. Damian Lillard, Kyle Korver, Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons were trimmed from the lineup early Saturday to slice the American roster to the 12-man limit needed by next Friday, the eve of the start of the global showdown in Spain.

FILE - In this Friday, April 26, 2013 file photo, masked Sunni protesters wave Islamist flags while others chant slogans at an anti-government rally in Fallujah, 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Baghdad, Iraq. Iraq's Sunni minority have felt maligned by the Shiite-led government in Baghdad, hounded by its security forces and increasingly threatened, once again, by the militias that terrorized them during the darkest days of sectarian bloodletting in 2006 and 2007. The community's anger has fueled the rampage of Islamic extremists across a third of the country, including Fallujah, and Sunnis say their demands must be met by the new Shiite-led government if it hopes to be more inclusive. (AP Photo/Bilal Fawzi, File)BAGHDAD (AP) — For nearly a decade Abu Omar has been fleeing Iraq's many conflicts, but they always seem to catch up to him.
