The Arizona Wildcats will be well-represented at the USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Championship team training camp next month.
The roster for the camp was announced Tuesday morning, with sophomore forward Brandon Ashley and a pair of incoming freshmen — forwards Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson – among the 24 players invited to tryout June 14-19 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
The 12-man roster, which will be coached by Florida’s Billy Donovan, will be announced June 18.
The team will go on to represent the United States at the U19 World Championship in Prague, Czech Republic, from June 27-July 7.
Gordon and Hollis-Jefferson have U.S. team experience. Gordon played on the 2011 U16 FIBA Americas gold-medal-winning team. Earlier this spring, he and Hollis-Jefferson were part of the Junior National Select Team that participated in the Nike Hoop Summit. Hollis-Jefferson also was a member of the 2012 U17 World Championship team, but did not play because of injury.
Ashley averaged 7.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game last season, when he started 21 of 35 games for Arizona.
