Beginning this evening, Coach Cal is overseeing a week long camp to narrow down just which players will represent the USA in the FIBA U19 World Cup in July.
The Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts ran through some of the details:
Assuming they all make the final team, UK freshmen Hamidou Diallo, Kevin Knox and PJ Washington will get close to 20 practice sessions with their new head coach before the FIBA World Cup itself. All three of those players traveled overseas with Team USA last summer.Calipari will also have an opportunity to make an impression on the four high schoolers with UK offers: Bol Bol, Romeo Langford, Immanuel Quickley and Cameron Reddish, who have all emerged as top recruiting targets for the Wildcats’ class of 2018.
