McCrea among finalists for U.S. U-19 squad

---UB sophomore Javon McCrea is one of 13 players named as finalists for the 2011 USA Men’s U19 World Championship Team. The selections, which were made by the USA Basketball Junior National Team Committee, came after three-days, four training sessions, during the U19 Team training camp that got underway Friday. The USA squad will look to defend the gold medal won in 2009 at the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship that runs June 30-July 10 in Latvia.

Training camp for the selected finalists continues today through Thursday with the official 12-member USA U19 roster being announced prior to the team’s departure for Europe on Friday.
