Update: Aparently there is one more cut, but we here at Bull Run think counting chickens before they hatch is a time honored and noble tradition. That's why this got posted before the final, final cut ;).
We have all seen just what Javon McCrazy can do on the court, now the rest of the nation knows as well. In what comes as no suprise to anybody who watched UB this season McCrea made the cut for the American U19 squad.
The selections were made by the USA Basketball Junior National Team Committee, after three-days and four training sessions that took place during the USA U19 Team training camp that got underway Friday. The USA squad will look to defend the gold medal won in 2009 at the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship that runs June 30-July 10 in Latvia.
Last year Coach Reggie Witherspoon took place as an assistant on the U19 squad.
