It’s that time again. Time for the powers that be to select which guys will represent the U.S. in the upcoming events. This time around, 28 guys have been selected to eventually take part in the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.
The invitees are made up of an interesting group as there’s a good blend of young and old. Either way, whichever set of guys is out there on the floor, the U.S. looks to be set up nicely for years to come.
