KUSA vs Switzerland Open Game Thread

Team USA tries to end pool play with a perfect record against the 1-3 Switzerland team.

After squeaking by Serbia last night, Team USA looks to finish pool play without dropping a single game. At this point, however, that would only be for pride, as the result of this matchup doesn't actually affect who the Americans play in the medal rounds.

Switzerland has is locked into the lowest bracket available, and will automatically advance as the 5th place team out of pool D, playing the last place team from pool C in the next round.

I have absolutely no idea what to expect from a game with such low stakes, except that Switzerland isn't likely to put up too much of a fight given their track record in the tournament so far.  The hope is that some of the banged-up starters can get some rest to prepare for the medal rounds that start late Friday.

The game can again be found on ESPNU or WatchESPN, starting at 8pm Kansas time.  There is no radio or online broadcast available.
