Team USA survived a first-half scare to stay unblemished in the FIBA 19-under world championships.

The Billy Donovan-coached U.S. team pulled away in the second half to beat Brazil 91-66 in the Czech Republic.

Team USA led just 40-36 at halftime before receiving a lift from Duke guard Rasheed Sulaimon, who scored a team-high 15 points.

Florida rising sophomore guard Michael Frazier II had five points, three rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes off the bench. Frazier shot 2-of-12 from the floor and 1-of-9 from 3-point range. He's shooting 21.9 percent from 3-point range (7 of 32) in four Team USA games.

Team USA (4-0) next plays Tuesday afternoon against Australia.
