Mike Tobey is getting the hang of this international basketball thing.
The Virginia sophomore center nearly recorded a double-double in the United States' 115-47 win over Russia Saturday in the final first round game of the U19 World Tournament in Prague.
Tobey scored 12 points and pulled down nine rebounds in 12 minutes of play off the bench.
The US is now 3-0 and has beaten all three opponents handily. Seven Americans scored in double figures and the US forced Russia into 27 turnovers.
Team USA now moves onto quarterfinal play. They'll face Brazil on Monday.
