USA Basketball: Friday night lessons

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The under-18 USA Basketball trials hit its first full day in Colorado as a few have begun to separate themselves from the pack . Friday night, it was a group of six that taught us a few more lessons as to why they are should be so heavily valued on the national platform.

- DJ Carton is not afraid of the moment
- Tyrese Maxey's personality shines
- Rocket Watts can go and get a bucket
- Timberlake has hidden abilities
- Lomax could be the catalyst of change for Memphis basketball
- Bacot changes momentum

Eighteen Finalists Remain for 2018 USA Men’s U18 National Team

...“We had 33 guys come here and all 33 competed hard,” said Bill Self, USA U18 and University of Kansas head coach. “We were all so impressed with how much it meant to all of them. But at the end of the day these 18 were the 18 who stood out the most and are certainly very deserving of the opportunity to continue. Now from this, they’ll each get a couple full days in order to show that they could be one of the 12 to make this team the best team it possibly can be moving forward into competition.

“It’s going to be difficult to get down to 12. Sometimes putting a USA team together is a little different than just looking at who can score the most points and who can get the most rebounds. So, it’ll be interesting to see how that plays out. But the 18 that were selected, we thinks gives us a great pool of players to give us the best chance to win.”

The 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship for Men will be held June 10-16 in St. Catharines, Canada, and the top four finishing teams will qualify for the 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup

Five-star PG Jalen Lecque discusses NBA options, recruiting

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The topic of reclassification has been a hot button issue of late and with Jalen Lecque, the stakes are raised even higher thanks to his national standing. A member of the 2019 class, Lecque is competing in the United States under-18 trials this weekend.

A five-star guard that popped out of relative obscurity last summer, Lecque has become one of the most watched prospects nationally.

“Last year, I had to make a statement for myself since I wasn’t expected to score that many points so I had to do what I had to,” he said. ‘Now, everybody is watching me and everybody is gearing towards stopping me so I just have to adjust to it. This spring, it was a pretty good success towards the end and it is better now since I am in that point guard spot.”

Elite teams continue to chase five-star Josiah James

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Josiah James has shown tremendous strides during his high school career as he earned his way to the United States under-18 trials this weekend. A 6-foot-6 point guard that can check many of the boxes, James recapped his spring, went in-depth on the schools in the mix, and gave a timeline that would lead to his college commitment.

“It has been going awesome. We had a good spring and great live periods,” he said about the beginning to his senior summer. “Just to get out here and compete against these great players and to play for the USA under-18 team, it has really been awesome. It has been a great experience as well. It's just a testament to my work ethic and I know that this is just a stepping stone but it is a big honor, it means a lot and it just makes me want to work harder in the future.”

Among those strong in pursuit, James told Rivals.com that Clemson, South Carolina, Duke, Michigan State, Florida, Florida State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Ohio State sit in a solid spot.
