The future of USA Basketball could have some red, white and Kentucky blue.

Anthony Davis scored 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds Thursday in the USA Basketball Showcase at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. He played for the Blue squad, which also featured former Wildcats DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall.

The White squad posted a 128-106 victory behind 23 points and seven assists from Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, who teamed with former UK standout Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

The players were part of a four-day mini-camp with USA Basketball officials evaluating their play for future international play. Davis was a member of the 2012 USA Olympic gold medal-winning team just months after leading UK to the national championship.
