COLORADO SPRINGS - Incoming freshman Stanley Johnson made the cut for the Team USA U18 men's national team here Thursday. The news comes as no surprise, as Johnson is one of the top athletes in the country.
Johnson has already captured two gold medals with Team USA Basketball, in 2011 with the U16 program and 2012 on the U17 squad. Johnson teamed with former Wildcat star Aaron Gordon on the 2011 team that took first place.
Arizona is well represented in Colorado Springs, as Sean Miller is serving as an assistant coach to Billy Donovan. Team USA will compete for a spot in the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championships.
Johnson and Miller look to lead Arizona back to the NCAA Tournament in the upcoming season.
