Gansey Takes Faceoff

Mike Gansey's U.S. team ran its recod to 3-0 in the World University Games with a 72-62 win over Joe Herber's German squad on Sunday.

Neither Gansey nor Herber shot as well as they have in past contests. Gansey was just 2-7 from the field and hit just one of his three pointers en route to five points, while Herber tallied eight points on 3-8 shooting. Four of his misses came from long range.

Gansey finally suffered a turnover, his first of the tournament, but countered that with three rebounds and one assist. Herber hit two of three from the free throw line, collected six rebounds, and added two steals and an assist against two turnovers.

The U.S. finished group play with a perfect 3-0 record, while Germany finished second in Group F with 2-1 mark. Both teams will enjoy a day off on Monday, then proceed with the second round of play on Tuesday. The U.S. will face the second place finisher in Group E, while Germany will face the winner of that group.
