Future Kentucky point guard Tyrese Maxey will represent the USA in April’s Nike Hoop Summit.

Maxey is the only current UK signee on Team USA’s roster.  Kahlil Whitney was passed over for lower-ranked players who have more experience in the USA Basketball program, ESPN reports.  Last year two Wildcats played in the Hoop Summit, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro.

Maxey will be joined by UK target Matthew Hurt.  The two teamed up for Team USA last summer to win a gold medal in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Canada.  A look at the rest of the roster:

The World Team rosters will be announced at a later date. The Nike Hoop Summit is April 12 in Portland, Oregon.
