Following the inaugural 2009-10 USA Basketball Mens Developmental National Team training camp that began on June 6 and featured 19 of the nations top young prep athletes, USA Basketball announced the 12 players selected to represent the United States at the 2009 FIBA Americas U16 Championship for Men.

The athletes, all of whom are 16-years-old or younger (born on or after Jan. 1, 1983), will continue to train twice a day through June 12 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. The USA will then travel to Mendoza, Argentina, in hopes of capturing the gold medal at the inaugural 2009 FIBA Americas U16 Championship, June 17-21. The top three finishing nations will qualify to compete in the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship (July TBD / Hamburg, Germany), against U17 national teams from around the globe.

I love the makeup of this team, said 2009-10 USA Basketball Mens Developmental National Team head coach Don Showalter, head coach of Mid-Prairie High School (Iowa). I think we have several players that play different positions for us. Defensive-wise thats really big for us because we can have people switch and play other positions. I love the chemistry of this team. They really work well together, they seem to like each other and they trust each other.

Selected to represent USA Basketball at the FIBA Americas U16 Championship were: Justin Anderson (Montrose Christian School, Md. / Montross, Va.); Brad Beal (Chaminade College Prep H.S. / St. Louis, Mo.); Quinn Cook (DeMatha H.S. / Bowie, Md.); Andr Drummond (Capitol Preparatory Magnet School / Middletown, Conn.); Sterling Gibbs (Seton Hall Prep / Scotch Plains, N.J.); Brandan Kearney (Southeastern H.S. / Detroit, Mich.); James McAdoo (Norfolk Christian H.S. / Norfolk, Va.); Johnny OBryant (Eastside H.S. / Cleveland, Miss.); Tony Parker (Miller Grove H.S. / Lithonia, Ga.); Chasson Randle (Rock Island H.S. / Rock Island, Ill.); L.J. Rose (Second Baptist School / Houston, Texas); and Adonis Thomas (Melrose H.S. / Cordova, Tenn.).

Showalter is being assisted in 2009 and 2010 by Herman Harried, head coach Lake Clifton High School (Md.), and Kevin Sutton, head coach at Montverde Academy (Fla.).
