The 2012 USA U18 National Team will be led by a trio of experienced and successful college coaches at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship, including Billy Donovan (University of Florida) as head coach, with Mark Few (Gonzaga University) and Shaka Smart (Virginia Commonwealth University) as assistant coaches.

“It will be important to learn to play together as a team in a short amount of time,” Donovan said. “We need to demonstrate great focus and teamwork and bring a high level of energy and effort every day in order to have success both in training camp and throughout the competition.”

Following the first three or four days of training camp from June 5-12 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center (USOTC) in Colorado Springs, Colo., finalist for the team will be selected by the USA Men's Junior National Team Committee and will continue to train at the USOTC.

“We have a very talented group of young players that will have a great chance of bringing home a gold medal in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship,” said Jim Boeheim, Syracuse University and Hall of Fame coach and chair of the USA Junior National Team Committee. “As is the case each year, our USA Team will be up against the best players in their age group in the world. They will face great competition from the other participating countries.”

The official, 12-member 2012 USA Men's U18 National Team will be selected prior to the team's departure for the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship, which will be played June 16-20 in Sao Sebastiao do Paraiso, Brazil. Players eligible for this competition must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 1994.

Eight teams will compete in the 2012 U18 zone qualifier, including the USA, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. The top fourfinishing teams in the tournament will qualify for next summer's 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship.

In addition to chair Boeheim, the USA Basketball Men's Junior National Team Committee includes NCAA appointees Lorenzo Romar (University of Washington), Bruce Weber (Kansas State University) and Roy Williams (University of NorthCarolina), as well as athlete representative Jay Williams (2002 USA World Championship Team).
