Team USA fell short of qualifying for the medal round at the World University Games when it suffered a 94-85 loss to Canada on Friday in Kazan, Russia. University of Cincinnati senior guard Sean Kilpatrick added three points, two rebounds and an assist.
The loss dropped the USA to No. 3 in Group C, meaning the USA will not advance to the medal quarterfinals and will now compete for ninth place.
Louisville’s Luke Hancock led the USA with 27 points. Creighton’s Doug McDermott added 17 points and a game-high nine rebounds. Hancock and McDermott made five three-pointers each. Baylor’s Cory Jefferson had 17 points and seven rebounds.
Canada was led in scoring by Brady Heslip’s 20 points thanks in part to four three-pointers.
The USA will play the No. 4 seed out of Group D, which will be decided following this evening’s games, at 10 a.m. (all times listed are local, Kazan is +8 hours from EDT) on July 14.
