Tyrese Maxey named a finalist for USA Men’s U18 National Team

USA Basketball

The USA Men’s U18 National team trimmed its roster to 18 this morning.

Tyrese Maxey made the cut. 

The final 12-man roster will be announced before the team’s departure to St. Catharines, Canada on June 7 for the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship.

The team is being coached by Kansas’ Bill Self and assistants Anthony Grant (Dayton) and Danny Manning (Wake Forest).

The other finalists include:

  • Cole Anthony (Archbishop Molloy H.S./Briarwood, N.Y.)
  • Armando Bacot (Trinity Episcopal School/Richmond, Va.)
  • Keion Brooks (North Side H.S./Fort Wayne, Ind.)
  • DJ Carton (Bettendorf H.S./Bettendorf, Iowa)
  • Hunter Dickinson (DeMatha Catholic H.S./Hyattsville, Md.)
  • Ayo Dosunmu (Morgan Park H.S./Chicago, Ill.)
  • Quentin Grimes (College Park H.S./The Woodlands, Texas)
  • Kamaka Hepa (Jefferson H.S./Barrow, Alaska)
  • Matthew Hurt (John Marshall H.S./Rochester, Minn.)
  • Trayce Jackson-Davis (Center Grove H.S./Greenwood, Ind.)
  • Josiah James (Porter-Gaud School/Charleston, S.C.)
  • Jalen Leque (Christ School/Teaneck, N.J.)
  • Tyrese Maxey (South Garland H.S./Dallas, Texas)
  • Justin Moore (DeMatha Catholic H.S./Hyattsville, Md.)
  • Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (Bishop Miege H.S./Shawnee Mission, Kan.)
  • Anton Watson (Gonzaga Prep/Spokane, Wash.)
  • Mark Watts Jr. (Old Redford Academy/Detroit, Mich.)
  • Coby White (Greenfield H.S./Goldsboro, N.C.).

After being named one of the top performers, it was no secret Maxey was going to be named one of the 18 finalists. I would also bet a lot of money he makes the final roster.
