The Freight Train’s summer tour is moving on as rising junior Treveon Graham earned a spot in the final 16 of the USA Basketball World University Games Training Camp.
Graham was among 26 of the country’s top collegians at the training camp, which began on Monday. The Temple Hills, Md. native will remain with the final 16 until July 1, when the squad’s final roster of 12 will be announced prior to the team’s departure for Russia.
The 2013 World University Games men’s basketball competition is scheduled for July 6-17 in Kazan, Russia. Davidson College’s Bob McKillop will lead the USA, with assistant coaches John Beilein of the University of Michigan and Frank Martin of the University of South Carolina.
