VIDEO: Shaka Smart discusses USA U18 trials


Texas head coach Shaka Smart is heading up the USA Basketball U18 FIBA Americas team this summer as the group is currently in training camp to figure out the team’s roster.

I had some thoughts on some of the players in attendance from my time there while Smart also assesses some of the strengths and weaknesses of this group.

The USA U18 team will compete in Chile in late July with the goal of winning and also qualifying for the FIBA U19 World Championships next summer.
