Woodbury hopes to represent USA

Adam Woodbury was planning on moving to Iowa City this weekend. Those plans changed last month when he was extended an invitation to tryout for the USA Basketball U18 National Team. The 7 footer from Sioux City will join 23 other players in Colorado Springs starting on June 5th.

Final cuts for the squad, which will be coached by Florida's Billy Donovan, will be announced on June 12th. Should Woodbury make the final roster of 12 players, he would play in the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship, which will be held in Sao Sebastiao do Paraiso, Brazil from June 16-20.
