"One of the great developments of our Las Vegas camp was the USA Select Team which consisted of juniors and seniors out of the college ranks that we brought in to scrimmage against the USA National Team," said USA basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo. "[Washington coach] Lorenzo Romar and [Villanova coach] Jay Wright did a terrific job of coaching the select players in Las Vegas. It worked so well we’ve decided to bring to New York a smaller group of players from that Select Team to do the same thing. They were very valuable to us and it’s a great experience for them."

The college players will arrive in New York Aug. 9 and train Aug. 10-13.

If Dule's two players are the best, and they did win a national championship, why was Wisconsin's John Leur rated by rated the best player at the college camp?
    Anyway you look at it this will be an oustanding year in college basketball, with the stars coming from several conferences - including the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and Big East.

This seems like it should be an NCAA recruiting violation. I addition to everything else Coach K can promise his recruits, now he can say, "Hey I can get you in on scrimmages with the USA team."

I'm a hater by the way. Duck Fuke
