Joe McKeown's Team USA beat Canada, 82-63, Monday morning in the final of the World University Games in Gwangju, South Korea to claim the gold medal at the tournament.
The Americans led by just three points heading into the fourth quarter, but blitzed the Canadians and opened up a huge lead to win comfortably.
Here's a great picture of McKeown, via Northwestern Athletics, after the medal ceremony:
Northwestern men's basketball made a good point on Twitter too:
Elsewhere at the World University games for Northwestern, golfer Hannah Kim won a bronze medal with Team USA. Kim, astoundingly, won Big Ten Player of the Year as a freshman, and led NU women's golf to great season. Incoming freshman diver Olivia Rosendahl also won a bronze, as did diving coach Alik Sarkisian. And of course Roser came home with a silver.
