Twenty-four players invited to USA Basketball's U19 training camp

Twenty-four basketball players, including two current high school juniors, have accepted invitations to USA Basketball's 2013 Men's U19 World Championship Team training camp that will be held June 14-19 in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Here's a list of the 24 players trying out for the 12-player team:

Florida's Billy Donovan will coach the U19 World Championship Team.

His assistants will be Virginia Commonwealth's Shaka Smart and Virginia's Tony Bennett.

"We have a really impressive group of talented players," said Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, the chair of the USA Basketball Men's Junior National Team Committee. "The FIBA U19 World Championship might be, from top to bottom, the most competitive competition FIBA conducts. Any of the teams competing have a real chance to win the U19 gold medal, as has been shown by six different countries winning the title over the last six U19 World Championships."
