Louisville sophomore-to-be Montrezl Harrell earned a gold medal on Sunday afternoon as the U19 U.S. National Team defeated Serbia 82-68 in the FIBA U19 World Champions. Harrell earned a gold medal last year competing for the U18 team. Harrell totaled a team-high 17 points, four rebounds, four blocked shots and hit 8-of-16 field goals in 28 minutes in the championship game. The United States team went 9-0 in the FIBA U19 World Championships. In 18 minutes per game, Harrell averaged 10.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, hit 42-of-73 field goals (.575) and added eight steals and 10 blocked shots. The energy from Harrell in the second half was very similar to the role he played in Louisville’s championship season in 2013. The U.S. team had just a two-point lead at halftime, but Harrell’s intensity helped spark a big run in the second half to pull away for good.
