Two players with Big 12 connections, Melvin Ejim and Brady Heslip are also playing for Canada. Of course the KU connection is strong with Langford playing and Tad Boyle as an Assistant Coach for the US and Kevin Young playing for Puerto Rico.
@JayHawkFanToo Puerto Rico, usa’s 2nd game

I was more surprised that Taurean Prince from Baylor was selected over Ric Suave. Also, Isaiah Cousins of Oklahoma and Fred VanVleet, who I thought pairs up so well with BRon Baker were cut

@JayHawkFanToo I don’t know what everyone plays, Cept for WSU and big 12 guys. Morris and Fred both pts. I thought Morris was one of the top pts in our con. I also thought rico suave would make it. Maybe not as fast as they want to play? Prince is a darn good shooter.

Rico Suave is one of the top rebounders in the country, ranked #4 overall but the top rebounder by far from a major conference.
