With the last game not on television, the nation lost the opportunity to see what is likely to be the best performance of the tournament for the United States, a 106-41 pasting of Chile early Tuesday morning. Instead, we gets what promises to be the most competitive game in the pool, and likely the toughest test these Jayhawks will face before the final rounds.
As fetch already outlined for us today in his preview, this Serbian team is made up of good players on decent teams, and many of them are used to playing important roles for their team. Kansas will have to be on top of their game in order to pull out the victory here.
Coming into today, the standings in Pool D are as follows: Serbia and the United States are tied at the top with perfect 3-0 records, Brazil is just behind at 2-1, Turkey comes next at 1-2, and Chile and Switzerland pull up the rear without a win between them. The winner of this game moves into a tie at the top of the pool at worst, so this game is a big deal.
The game starts at 10pm Kansas time on ESPNU and WatchESPN. As with all the games in Korea, there is no radio option available, even online.
