After a close first half, USA basketball outscored Sweden 27-17 in the third quarter to turn a 10-point lead into a 20-point advantage en route to an 83-65 win Thursday night at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia.

Trailing 27-26 in the second period, the USA (3-0) strung together 11 unanswered points to lead 37-27 at the midway point and that momentum carried into the second half, which saw the USA improve its shooting from 39.4 percent (13-33 FGs) from the field to 56.3 percent (9-16 FGs) in the third quarter to pull away from Sweden (0-3).

Yogi Ferrell of Indiana led the Americans with 20 points while Treveon Graham of VCU added 14 points. Creighton forward Doug McDermott scored eight.
