Gibbs leads team USA to win

 

Ashton Gibbs is on his way to winning another gold medal.

Gibbs scored a game-high 20 points to lead the USA men’s team to a 108-67 victory over Mexico in its opening game of the 2011 World University Games on Saturday in Shenzhen, China.

Gibbs, who won a world championship gold with the U19 team two years ago, shot 7 of 12 from the field and added a team-high three assists and two steals for Team USA, which play Hungary on Sunday.

Team USA trailed 24-22 after one quarter, but led43-37 at halftime and never looked back to improve to 132-8 all-time in the World University Games.

 ”Once we started going strong and beating the zone, in the second half, we added to the lead and were able to win the game,” Gibbs said.
