Three Big East Players on U.S. World University Games Roster

The final U.S. World University Games roster has been announced. Unfortunately for Big East players Aaric Murray of West Virginia and Connecticut's Shabazz Napier, they were the last two players cut. The final roster of 12 players has three players from the Big East: Tim Abromaitis of Notre Dame, Ashton Gibbs from Pittsburgh and Syracuse's Scoop Jardine. The Big East and SEC are tied for the most selections with three.

The World University Games will be played in China from August 13-22. The team will leave for China on August 8 and play a professional Chinese team, New Century, in an exhibition before starting play in the tournament.

Here is the complete U.S. World University Games roster:

Guards: Marcus Denmon (Missouri), Ashton Gibbs (Pittsburgh), Scoop Jardine (Syracuse), John Jenkins (Vanderbilt), Orlando Johnson (UC Santa Barbara), Ray McCallum (Detroit Mercy), Darius Miller (Kentucky)

Forwards: Tim Abromaitis (Notre Dame), Draymond Green (Michigan State), JaMychal Green (Alabama), Greg Mangano (Yale), Trevor Mbkawe (Minnesota)

The USA finished with the bronze medal in the 2009 World University Games. Since the U.S. began playing in 1965, they have won the gold 13 times. They have also taken home three silver medals and three bronze medals. The team last won the gold in 2005.
