Posted June 17, 2010

James McAdoo will be wearing Carolina blue during his college career, but this summer he'll be wearing "USA" across his chest.

McAdoo is one of 19 players that will be participating in the 2010 USA Basketball Men's Developmental National Team's training camp that opens Friday, June 18, at the University of Texas at San Antonio. The camp will continue there through June 24.

The 12-member 2010 USA U17 World Championship Team and the four players who will represent the U.S. in the 3-on-3 basketball competition at the inaugural 2010 Youth Olympic Games will be chosen out of the 19 players in attendance.

Members of the USA Basketball Developmental National Team expected to attend the June 18-24 training include: Justin Anderson (Montrose Christian School, Md. / Montross, Va.); Kyle Anderson (St. Anthony's H.S. / Fairview, N.J.); Brandon Ashley (Bishop O'Dowd H.S./ Oakland, Calif.); Brad Beal (Chaminade College Prep H.S. / St. Louis, Mo.); K.C. Caudill (Brea Olinda H.S. / Brea, Calif.); Angelo Chol (Herbert Hoover H.S. / San Diego, Calif.); Quinn Cook (DeMatha H.S. / Bowie, Md.); André Drummond (St. Thomas More School / Middletown, Conn.); Sterling Gibbs (Seton Hall Prep / Scotch Plains, N.J.); Michael Gilchrist (St. Patrick H.S. / Somerdale, N.J).; Johnny O'Bryant (Eastside H.S. / Cleveland, Miss.); Tony Parker (Miller Grove H.S. / Lithonia, Ga.); Norvel Pelle (Price H.S. / Long Beach, Calif.); Chasson Randle (Rock Island H.S. / Rock Island, Ill.); L.J. Rose (Second Baptist School / Houston, Texas); Marquis Teague (Pike H.S. / Indianapolis, Ind.); Adonis Thomas (Melrose H.S. / Cordova, Tenn.); and Anthony Wroten, Jr. (Garfield H.S. / Seattle, Wash.). 2009-10 USA Developmental National Team members Perry Ellis (Wichita Heights H.S. / Wichita, Kan.), Brandan Kearney (Southeastern H.S. / Detroit, Mich.) and Kevin Ware (Rockdale County H.S. / Conyers, Ga.) will not participate in the training.

    Hmm...
    If cow college has any hopes at all of making it back to the NIT this year, they're gonna need every player on the roster, including CJ to contribute early and often. With the wolfies young roster this year, they will obviously be going through some growing pains and wins will be difficult to come by. However, I don't have any reason to believe the pups can't be competitive in about 3 years or so. Fans will have to be patient and keep supporting the team through another tough season like they've done the last few decades and last year when Lowe lost control of the team and some players left afterwards. Although their history of tradition and respect throughout the conference never existed, their main objective now should be to stay focused and be consistent as they try and learn how to play as a team...this is a concept that was instilled by the legendary Norm Sloan but was apparantly abandoned once Lowe stormed off the court.

    The kid is good, but don't think he is gonna get unc back to the promiseland, he is just gonna be an insurance policy, just in case zeller or henson get hurt! It's not gonna matter because DUKE is gonna dominate unc again this year and has a great chance at Back 2 Back titles! GO DUKE!

    You're clueless. McAdoo is graduating high school a year early and has a high GPA. He's a high achiever in the affluent Norfolk Christian Academy.

    Are you serious? He needs to pass two classes. How can he stay in a University if he has such grades? He doesn't look like a thug to me.
