University of Wisconsin sophomore guard Jonathan Davis made one of four of his shot attempts in Team USA’s basketball win over Senegal on Friday. 

The Americans played Senegal in the quarterfinal round of the FIBA U19 World Cup in Riga, Latvia. Team USA won 88-58. Davis played 16 minutes and made one 3-point shot.

Purdue’s Jaden Ivey led the U.S. with 12 points on 5-for-11 shooting. The team shot 46.58% overall. Creighton’s Ryan Kalkbrenner grabbed a team-high eight rebounds. 

The U.S. advanced to the semifinals where it will face Canada on Saturday. 

Canada, like Team USA, hasn’t lost a game in the World Cup. It defeated Spain 81-77 to advance to the semifinal round.  

The time of the game is yet to be determined.
