The U.S. team will enjoy a day off on Saturday before facing Ukraine in the gold medal matchup. Ukraine defeated Serbia and Montenegro 69-63 in the other semifinal contest.
WVU's other representative in the games, Joe Herber, had a rough shooting night, but still helped the German team advance in a 63-59 win over Canada. Herber was just 2-8 from the field and 1-2 from the line, but added four rebounds, three steals and an assist to his line score. Like Gansey, Herber did not commit a turnover.
The German team will face the winner of the Australia-Turkey matchup for fifth place on Sunday.
