ESPN has a good article on the players that are trying to make the USA Basketball under-19 squad. Howard Thompkins is competing for one of the slots.
The blog article also mentions that University of Kentucky recruit Daniel Orton is working out to be ready for the season. He will be training under Frank Matrisciano out in San Fran. I had mentioned previously the work of Matrisciano and suggested that UGA's big men might benefit from working out with him. The fact that Orton is actually doing so could mean trouble for the SEC.
