Gibbs and the U.S. also downed a Puerto Rico team that featured Rutgers guard Mike Rosario. Rosario was coming off a 54- point outing against France, but the USA held him to 11 points in the win. “We definitely couldn’t let that happen [54 points],” Gibbs said. “He didn’t play bad against us, he just missed a lot of tough shots. And that’s what he wanted him to do.” Gibbs was at the Joe Brown tournament watching his younger brother Sterling play for the New York Panthers. A slew of coaches were on hand to recruit Sterling, including Rutgers head coach Fred Hill, St. Joe’s assistant Phil Martelli, Pitt assistant Brandin Knight, Seton Hall assistant Kevin Murphy, Providence assistant Pat Skerry and St. John’s assistants Oz Cross and Chris Casey.
“He likes Villanova but I don’t think he really has a leader,” Ashton said of his brother. “Everything’s wide open. Hopefully he comes to a decision soon.” Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter.
