McLean to play in Taiwan

Per Dustin Dow's blog we will not get the chance to see Jamel play in the Deveroes Summer League. He will be traveling with the Athletes In Action sports ministry to play in the William Jones Cup International Tournament. It is a ten team tournament and supposedly features Olympic level competition from the Asian countries. He will practice with the other players July 1-7, and tour Taiwan July 10-18. Good for Jamel. This will keep him under wraps from the masses locally though and I think he will be an immediate contributor to the squad next year.

Among other things there is a strong rumor that we are in Ari Stewart's top three right now. He has been invited with 24 other players by Jim Boeheim to try out for the USA Basketball Olympic team in his age group. They only keep 12 and name three alternates. Still quite the honor for the young man.

Also Sean Miller's 'elite camp' is taking place this Friday and Saturday. There are some interesting names on the list for this camp. I will have a little recap for that soon.
