MANILA--Dennis Schroder stepped up for Germany as the team made quick work of Georgia with a 100-73 win to stay undefeated in the FIBA World Cup at the Okinawa Arena on Friday. 

Schroder recorded 16 points and 7 assists in 3 quarters of play as he sat out the last period with his country leading by 13.

The Germans found themselves ahead of Georgia in the first quarter, 22-16, courtesy of their 10-0 run late in the opening frame.

Georgia, though, moved within striking distance by halftime, although Germany remained in the lead, 43-41. 

Germany’s hot shooting from long range helped them pull away in the 3rd. 

Germany shot 57 percent behind the arc in the end, while Georgia shot only 27 percent. 

Maodo Lo shot the lights out tonight, shooting an efficient 6/6 from the rainbow territory in his 18-point performance along with 5 assists and 1 steal.

Germany, holding a 4-0 record will face Slovenia (3-0 as of writing) on Sunday night.
