Ames native Doug McDermott has been named to the USA men’s basketball select team.
The select team will train with the men’s national team during its training camp July 18-21 in Las Vegas as it prepares to take part in the Olympic games. The former Creighton All-American also played on the 2014 USA select team and was invited to a national team minicamp in 2013.
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who will succeed Mike Krzyzewski as National team coach following the Olympics, will oversee the Select team.
He averaged more than nine points and nearly two and a half rebounds this past season for the Chicago Bulls.
