PRAGUE, Czech Republic — Virginia center Mike Tobey scored 12 points and pulled down a game-high nine rebounds as the United States crushed Russia, 115-47, in the FIBA U19 World Championships on Saturday. Tobey, a rising sophomore for the Cavaliers, went 5-for-6 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free throw line in 13 minutes of action.

"It was definitely fun going out there," Tobey said. "My teammates did a great job."

Tobey was one of seven American players who scored in double figures.

"I think everyone gets along really well, so that transitions from off the court," Tobey said. "So, our chemistry has been very, very good and for only two weeks of preparation I think we’re coming together very well."

The U.S. wrapped up the preliminary round with a 3-0 record. The Americans open up second-round group play on Monday against Brazil.
