“I feel that this is a very strong roster,” White said. “This group of players is filled with talent and young men who love playing the game. I believe one of our strengths is versatility. We have a lot of guys that can play multiple positions. And, we have depth at key positions. This group also boasts a lot of proven winners. They have either won with USA Basketball, or they have won at their high schools or in summer basketball.”
