Following Talor Battle at the Men’s World University Games

The USA has played 3 games so far, all exibition and this is how its gone for our man Talor Battle and the rest of Team USA.So far Talor has had a pretty good showing but his playing time has been limited, that more than likely has to do with the team finding its stride.

**A note worth adding, Corey Fisher, who starts ahead of Talor is seeing alot of playing time. So even though the numbers seem low for our Happy Valley star, he is playing..ok..he’ll need to work the rust off, but Im sure he’ll be good to go once the real games begin**
