Louisville senior-to-be Luke Hancock exploded for a game high 27 points on Friday morning for the United States team at the World University Games in Russia.
Unfortunately the United States was defeated by Canada 94-85 and have been eliminated from medal contention. Their next opponent is yet to be determined, but they best Team USA can finish is ninth place.
This isn’t exactly what most people expected from this years United States team.
Hancock played 27 minutes shooting 9-of-13 from the floor and 5-of-6 from three point range. 27 points in 27 minutes is pretty damn impressive. Hancock also finished with five rebounds and three steals.
I’m sure getting the win was all that mattered to Luke, but he deserves a tip of the hat for the impressive performance.
