Kansas sophomore point guard Charlie Moore scored six points and dished three assists while playing 17 minutes in USA East Coast’s 77-67 loss to Germany on Friday in the U.S. college all-star team’s opening game of its four-game Tour of Venice competition in Italy.

Moore, a 5-foot-11 transfer from Cal, who is originally from Chicago, also had two rebounds and a steal.

Moore had a chance to cut a game-high deficit of 18 points to three points with 57 seconds remaining. However, Moore’s attempt at a driving layup, impeded by a player on Germany’s team, was deemed incidental contact, not a foul and the shot attempt missed. Germany closed the game on a 5-0 run.

Jimmy Whitt of SMU led the U.S. East Coast team with 11 points. The U.S. team will play Italy at 1 p.m., Central time, Saturday.
