Germany at Kansas coverage

Kansas defeats Germany, 84-77

  • 7 a.m., July 13, 2015
  • Gwangju, South Korea,

KU/USA wins gold in double-OT vs. Germany

Their legs look tired, at times things got sloppy, but in the end Team USA’s basketball players found just enough to outlast Germany and win the gold medal at the World University Games Monday in Gwangju, South Korea.

Kansas University won all eight of its games — in 10 days — at the international competition, capped by an 84-77, double-overtime victory in the championship.

Wayne Selden Jr., who looked worn down after carrying the U.S. throughout the games, made just six of his 28 shots, but led the team with 22 points. The junior KU guard launched the ball toward the rafters as time expired at the end of the 50-minute affair.

Frank Mason III had as much to do with the gutsy victory as anyone, taking over late and scoring the basket that forced double overtime. The junior point guard finished with 18 points and six assists.

Senior forward Perry Ellis made six of 21 shot attempts and added 19 points.

— Check back in for more throughout the day, as KUsports.com’s Bobby Nightengale Jr. and Mike Yoder report from South Korea.

Rodney, what did you call me out for? I was not calling you out

Samantha Gearhart

How many points did Wayne average during all the games?

This group has shown the mental toughness that has been lacking for the past 3 years in Korea. They've put away teams late and not let them back in, they've overcome late deficits and exhausted legs and just outlasted everyone. This is shaping up to be a special season, especially when KU adds their wings back and the Energizer Bunny in the paint.

CONGRATS JAYHAWKS ON A GREAT WIN! RCJH!!

John Randall

These guys deserve to sleep until September !!!

Kind of sorry for Germany with so little competition getting to last game, the heart to finish the last one wasn't there.

Rob Bedford III

Woo hoo! Rock Chalk Jayhawk.

Gdkadjayhawk in reply to Rodney Crain

Runningbeakers84

I'm sure Jesus wasn't talking about this, but it kinda applies, "blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

Baldjedi

Where is Al Micheals, "Do you believe in miracles?" Lol

Travis303

Hunter has gotten all his points cleaning up after others vs. being fed.

Bobby Nightengale KUsports.com staff in reply to Dirk Medema

56-42 advantage for USA. Lucas had 8 in 20 minutes.

John Randall

Perry strong on boards, but who can still score?

Tom Keegan KUsports.com staff in reply to Baldjedi

Better at both ends with Mickelson.

Rodney Crain in reply to Dirk Medema

Dirk don't use words you don't know what they mean. Try watching the game instead of trying to be clever, you don't have a clue little guy

Texashawk10_2

KU's offense is completely out of whack right now. Mason needs to drive and draw fouls.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff in reply to Dirk Medema

8 rebounds for Lucas.

Jayhawks2016

Feed Hunter inside

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Sloppy here because of the dead legs on the floor.

rebounds?

Runningbeakers84

Tired legs, shots are short.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Huge offensive rebound from Ellis... Selden has to force wild 3 and Ellis with another offensive board... Mason 3 is short to end possession.

So glad boss isn't in the office, and I can flex my time.

Baldjedi

Germany looks tired now, and Hunter is fresh

Melrank

Ellis the glass cleaner

Tom Keegan KUsports.com staff

Announcer just said Lucas huge lift for Kansas at offensive and defensive end. He just fouled out without scoring a point.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Selden couldn't jump as high as he wanted and couldn't finish the alley-oop. Fatigue all over the place.

Ian Ballinger in reply to Tom Keegan

or if you're boss is a jayhawk fan "KU was playing for a World Championship, in the summer, in double overtime.... let that sink in bossman"

Shouldn't Hunter, Carlton, Lagerald have something to help Frank and Wayne?

Dirk Medema in reply to Travis303

Someone else asked that earlier, but no reply. I think they have all played the same number of games. Even last place team. Where is the question coming from.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Hunter Mickelson finally back in the game.

Baldjedi

Sit Moore please!

Melrank

No Moore of that

Jayhawks2016

It's Frank Mason time for the win!

Go Hawks

Tom Keegan KUsports.com staff

Top excuses to tell your boss why you're late: 1. On way out door, dog made a mess. I had to clean it; 2. Backing out of driveway drove over a nail and had to change tire.

Texashawk10_2

Forget feeding Ellis, just get the ball in Frank's hands and let him go to work.

Dirk Medema in reply to Lawkan

There are no fresh legs, and we need to finish not start.

Bobby Nightengale KUsports.com staff

Sorry for slow score updates. Internet down here.

Travis303

why does KU have the disadvantage of playing an extra game?

Tom Keegan KUsports.com staff

My money on team with Frank Mason in 2nd OT.

Dirk Medema in reply to Rodney Crain

stop projecting quitter.

Melrank

Work is overrated. Cmon Hawks!

Ian Ballinger

Praise God! This is an amazing game. Have faith Jayhawk Nation.

Rodney Crain

agree Tom K.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Of course Frank Mason drives and finishes to tie it with seconds left. ... Double OT coming up.

Travis303

unbelievable

John Randall

Dammit, coach, no favorites here. We can't afford Landon going brain dead!

Lawkan

need to put some fresh legs in to start this one.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff in reply to Baldjedi

Ha! That last one was maybe his biggest crime yet.

Texashawk10_2

Have to get a stop here, KU's legs look too tired to make a 3 right now.

Melrank

Dang

Huge USA chant now.
