Darius Miller and Men's U-19 Team Win Gold

Today, the U.S. Men's under-19 basketball team won their first gold medal since 1991 with a 88-80 win over Greece.

Darius Miller, a soon to be sophomore at the University of Kentucky, played a key role on the team. In only 14 minutes per game, Miller averaged 5 points and also led the team with 12 blocks and 14 steals throughout the tourney run.

This win is really big because the team is made up of guys who are for the most part under the radar in college basketball.
