Team USA (5-1 record) announced the 14 players that will participate in Las Vegas training camp on Thursday, with 12 of them being selected for September’s WC Qualifiers.
The roster for the squad’s matches against Uruguay (September 14) and Panama (September 17) is as follows:
Bryce Alford (G), Dwayne Bacon (SG), V.J. Beachem (F), Jordan Crawford (SG), Henry Ellenson (F/C), Reggie Hearn (SG), Isaiah Hicks (PF), Dakari Johnson (C), Frank Mason III (PG), Ben Moore (F), Chasson Randle (PG), Travis Trice (SG), Jameel Warney (PF), Derrick White (PG).
“With our September second-round games marking the start of the most critical part of the World Cup Qualifying, I think it is imperative for us to look for players who possess mental fortitude, who are tough, and who have experience,” said head coach Jeff Van Gundy.
“All of our second-round games are going to very, very difficult and competitive battles. Argentina, Panama and Uruguay are all really good and well coached,” he added.
The second round of the World Cup Qualifiers will take place over three windows (September, November and February), as the Americans will play twice against Argentina, Panama and Uruguay.
