Kirk, USA rout opponents at World University Games
Alex Kirk and the USA men’s World University Games basketball team will again be in action for a pool play game today.
The USA will take on Sweden in the third game of pool play. That game will be televised on ESPNU tonight and replayed early Thursday morning.
Kirk, who made the cut for the WUG, has appeared in both the USA’s pool play contests so far. He produced a double-double (10 points, 12 rebounds) in 17 minutes in the USA’s 140-46 victory over the United Arab Emirates Sunday.
Monday, Kirk played seven minutes and ended up with 2 points and 4 rebounds as the USA thumped the Czech Republic 96-53.
Currently, the USA is a half-game behind Canada in Pool C. Canada is 3-0, with wins over Sweden, the UAE and Australia. Australia is a half-game behind the USA.
The first- and second-place team from each of the four pools will move on to direct elimination, which begins Sunday.
The WUG are being played in Kazan, Russia.
