Battle-tested against basketball's elite


Article By BRIAN PELOZA, Special to the Times Union


After proving himself in the Big Ten last season, Battle took his game to the world level during the summer, playing with the under-19 U.S. World University team. He was the team’s leading scorer as the U.S. captured a bronze medal in Serbia.

The Times Union writer got his basketball teams mixed up. There’s a US World University Games team and a USA Under-19 National team. They are different animals and the writer seems to have tried to combine them. Battle was on the World University Games team not on the U-19 national team.
