U19 Emus Squad announced
Basketball Australia is proud to announce its 22-man squad for the Under 19 men's basketball team ahead of the 2007 FIBA U19 world championship, which will take place from July 12-22 in Novi Sad, Serbia.
The squad will undergo a camp at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra from March 7-10, followed by two further camps at the same location from April 9-12 and May 7-10, where the number of squad members will be reduced.
The near-final squad will then tour France from May 29 until June 13 before a pre-worlds tournament (the Global Games) in Dallas, Texas from July 1-8.
Following their success at the U20 Nationals in Ballarat last week, eight New South Welshman have been named in the squad, along with five Queenslanders, three Victorians, three West Australians, two South Australians and one athlete from the ACT, Patrick Mills.
Mills received the R.E. Staunton Medal for the second year running at the U20 Nationals last week after averaging an amazing 37.2 points per game. He also led the tournament in steals per game (4.3) and minutes per game (averaging 38.4 of a possible 40) while ranking second in assists per game (5.2).
Basketball Australia would like to congratulate all those athletes selected.
