BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- The United States will play Turkey in the group stage of this summer's World Cup of Basketball in a rematch of the 2010 final.

The other teams drawn into Group C on Monday were the Dominican Republic, Finland, New Zealand and Ukraine. Group C will be played in Bilbao.

The U.S. beat Turkey in the final four years ago, when the tournament was known as the world championship.

Host Spain has a tougher Group A with European champion France, Serbia, Brazil, Egypt and Iran.

The U.S. and Spain are in groups on opposite sides of the bracket, meaning the title favorites can't meet until the Sept. 14 final.

Group B includes Argentina, Greece, Croatia, Senegal, Philippines, and Puerto Rico.

Group D has Lithuania, Angola, South Korea, Slovenia, Mexico, and Australia.
