HUNTINGTON BEACH, California, June 22. HEAD Coach Marc Hunt has announced the Men's World University Games roster that will compete at the World University Games this August 11-23 in Shenzhen, China. The squad represents some of the best recent college aged talent the United States has to offer. Team USA has been slotted in Group C along with Serbia, France, and Singapore and will meet those teams in group play to start off the tourney opening with Singapore on August 11.
Team USA has had success in the event earning consecutive first place finishes in 1991 and 1993. The 1991 title came under the direction of UC-Irvine's Ted Newland in Sheffield, England while the most recent championship team was guided by the late Steve Heaston of Cal in 1993 in Buffalo, New York. The United States last competed in the World University Games in 2009 in Belgrade, Serbia claiming a sixth place finish.
