After a summer of events, which ended several weeks ago with the USA Basketball Men’s National Team capture gold at the World Cup in Spain, FIBA announced the All-Summer Youth Tournaments Team.
Kansas wing Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk was named to the five-person team selected by David Hein. The 6-foot-8 Mykhailiuk averaged 16.0 points 4.7 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.1 assists per game in the U18 European Championship. Later in the summer, he was named to the Ukrainian National Team. The Jayhawks is set to appear in international play next summer, representing the United States in the World University Games.
Isaac Humphries, a four-star 2016 power forward, was also named to the All-Youth Tournaments Team. The 6-foot-10 Aussie averaged 18.9 points and 11.6 rebounds in the U17 World Championships in Dubai. Australia ended up reaching the gold medal game, though, Humphries was plagued with early foul trouble — then limited by the likes of Diamond Stone, Ivan Rabb and the rest of the U.S. front court — as USA Basketball held on for a 99-92 victory.
Malik Newman, the No. 3 overall recruit in the Class of 2015 by Rivals, was named to the honorable mention list. Newman led the U.S. to the U17 World Championship. The 6-foot-3 lead guard led the U.S. in scoring at 14.9 points, adding 4.3 assists per game. Dillon Brooks, the leading scorer in the FIBA U18 Americans Championships, also was a near-miss. The 6-foot-5 wing was part of a Canadian team that lost to USA Basketball in the gold medal game. Less than two months later, Brooks committed to Oregon and enrolled in school for this season.
Cedi Osman (Turkey), Dragan Bender (Croatia) and Stefan Peno (Serbia) rounded out the All-Summer Youth Tournaments Team.
