Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! Yesterday USA Basketball announced the 20 NBA players who have been invited to this summer’s training camp for Team USA as they prepare for the FIBA World Cup in China. Two prominent Villanova names appear in the announcement: Kyle Lowry and Jay Wright.
We’ve known for a while now that Jay Wright will serve as an assistant coach for this team under Greg Popovich. And with the Villanova coach that high in the coaching ranks, it was a fairly good guess that Kyle Lowry (a member of the 2016 Gold Medal Olympic Team) would get a chance to return to USA Basketball.
