Hunter, Frank and Big Wayne. Perry please wake up.

We look decent as a team in Korea....and it is crazy to think we are not even playing with 4 of our top rotational players

Ten Yeahs

I love Seldon's 3 ball shooting, but sometimes I think he falls in love with his outside shot a little too much. He such a strong player, I like when he drives to he rim

Dirk Medema in reply to John Randall

That sounded sarcastically rhetorical to me - no?

Dirk Medema in reply to Ten Yeahs

As will a healthy Greene and Svi, though not as much the ball handlers.

Tdscpa in reply to John Randall

Why did we not see it?

Ten Yeahs

hopefully Mason doesnt foul out of too many games this upcoming season. Definitely feel more comfortable with him in there. But a healthy Graham should help come regular season time

John Randall in reply to Tdscpa

The 1st was close ... KU up by one.

Next question.

Tdscpa

Can we ever see the first quarter?

Ten Yeahs

crazy crazy game!

Brian Skelly

Win or lose that game, it felt like a game in March. Wow that was fun. Now its time for the coaches kids to get some clock against the Swiss.

Rodney Crain in reply to John Randall

YES SIR!

John Randall

Mommy, is it over yet? Can I look out from under the covers?

Zeikmontellioso

Good to see Hunter come on strong tonight.

Brian Skelly

What a wild and crazy end. Maybe I should apply for the Serbian Men's team head coach. Brilliant strategy.

A lot of energy in here with a lot of neutral fans.

Bobby Nightengale in reply to Runningbeakers84

I think you can't do clear path fouls.

Rodney Crain

no drives to the basket make them earn it from outside

Bobby Nightengale in reply to Koolkeithfreeze

Serbia fouled with 12 seconds left in tie game to get the ball back. Selden made 1 of 2. Serbia timeout.

Runningbeakers84

So you can wrap up a player and it is not intentional?

Koolkeithfreeze

Selene hit 1-2 free throws?

Koolkeithfreeze

Wait. What's going on now?

this is scary

Lex Valdez

Wow what a game... feels like march in july lol

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Gotta have Selden make a play off the bounce here, right? Whether he takes the shot or dishes.

Bobby Nightengale

I get the logic behind the timeout, but I'd probably take my chances. USA not shooting lights out.

Rodney Crain

interesting

Wayne Selden answers with 3 from the left wing. Tie game. 65-all. And Ellis w/ D-rebound.

Bobby Nightengale

Serbia fouls with a tie game and 12 seconds left... hmmm...

Great set play from the Serbs out of the timeout. 3-pointer gives Serbia 65-62 lead with :43 left.

Selden with an answer. Wow.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Can KU win this type of game without Mason? I have my doubts. It should be up to Selden/Ellis to get USA out of here with a win.

Rodney Crain

we are going to need some luck to pull this out. OT would be bad we are short handed, got to win it in reg. if we can.

Thought DeBose had the offensive rebound but Serbs come up with it and tie it on other end with layup.

Frank Mason fouling out is a big deal. Ton of pressure on Moore now who has 4 fouls.

Bobby Nightengale

Ticky-tac foul called on Ellis, his fourth. Serbia back to the line.

Frank Mason has fouled out with 2 minutes to play in a tight game. So, that's not a great development for USA/KU.

Bobby Nightengale

No more Mason. Fouled out.

Don Burgundy

Noooooo

John Randall in reply to Don Burgundy

Not just yeahhhh, but Hell yeahhhh!

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Moore not lacking in confidence department. Makes sense. A senior conference player of year.

Matt Tait KUsports.com staff

Serious answer by KU after being hit by the 10-0 Serbian run… Impressive. Definitely showing some toughness and veteran play.

Runningbeakers84

Rock Chalk errrrr USA USA!

Awwwww yeahhhh!!!

Nic Moore. Wow. Was 0-for-9.

Nice job by Selden to finish the off-target alley-oop pass with a layup. Mickelson set it up with a block on D.

Rodney Crain

amazing

Bobby Nightengale

Wow Mickelson block, Selden with an acrobatic layup

USA/KU dodges a bullet as Serbia gets off. rebound on FT miss, but can't cash in.

Bobby Nightengale

Sorry, Mickelson to the line... not Ellis.

Bobby Nightengale

Serbia can't take advantage of the extra possession. Ellis fouled on the rebound.

No hesitation from Selden as Moore kicks out an offensive rebound. Selden rises up for the long 2-point jumper.

Bobby Nightengale

Moore can't get a shot to drop, but huge offensive rebound. Moore is 0-for-9 today.

Ellis has been off all night, but assertively posts up and spins inside for the lay-in. USA down 54-53.

Bobby Nightengale

USA chant going throughout the crowd now.

KU showing some grit. Mickelson with a big finish inside.

Benton Smith KUsports.com staff

Wow. Selden slashes to the lane, avoids interior defense and scores in the paint.

Then Mickelson scores in transition.

KU/USA needed that spurt badly.

Bobby Nightengale

Big set of plays by the Jayhawks.
