Maysville native seeks second gold medal, he previously won a gold medal on the U19 team in 2009.
USA team roster contains three SEC players
Joining the trio on the squad are: Tim Abromaitis (Notre Dame), Marcus Denmon (Missouri), Ashton Gibbs (Pittsburgh), Draymond Green (Michigan State), Scoop Jardine (Syracuse), Orlando Johnson (UC Santa Barbara), Greg Mangano (Yale), Trevor Mbakwe (Minnesota), and Ray McCallum (Detroit Mercy).
The team will be coached by Purdue's Matt Painter, who will be assisted by Cuonzo Martin of Tennessee and Brad Stevens of Butler.
Painter said of the squad, "I think our strengths are going to come out in competition, and we have some very good players. I think we have some good point-guard play, some good, athletic wings that can shoot the basketball and then we have some good interior strength. So, I think we have balance. We do have some interchangeable parts, some guys at the three and four positions that can swing either way. We can play smaller and we can play bigger. It will depend on who we are playing against. I do think we can play a couple of different ways, and that's always a positive."
