NORMAN, Okla. Oklahoma's Aaryn Ellenberg has scored a game-high 19 points to lead Team USA (3-0) to a 105-75 victory over Brazil (1-2) to sweep through preliminary round play at the World University Games.
Ellenberg hit seven of 13 attempts, including 5-of-9 3-pointers, in just 19 minutes on the court during Wednesday's game in Kazan, Russia.
Ellenberg's total all came in the first half as the Americans routed their third straight opponent and moved on to Friday's quarterfinal rounds, where they will meet the loser of a matchup between Russia and Sweden.
Team USA and Oklahoma head coach Sherri Coale says Ellenberg is a volume scorer who can make a lot of points in a very short amount of time. Coale says it was good for her teammates to see her performance.
