The Team USA bench celebrates a slam dunk by Kansas guard Wayne Selden Jr. in a Team USA 96-57 win over Switzerland Thursday, July 9, at the World University Games in South Korea.
With six minutes left in the third quarter against Switzerland on Thursday, Kansas University senior forward Hunter Mickelson sprinted to mid-court for a loose ball. It didn’t matter that the United States men’s basketball team had already secured a spot in the World University Games quarterfinals. It didn’t matter that the Jayhawks had a 25-point lead on their way to a 96-57 victory at DongKang College Gymnasium. Mickelson wasn’t giving up on the play. By Bobby Nightengale Jr.
