A Sunday Post? Are You Kidding?

VCUs Eric Maynor has made the Final 14 for the USA Pan Am team.

The player selections, which were made after five practices between July 12-14 at Haverford College (Pa.), were made by the USA Basketball Men’s Collegiate Committee, chaired by Syracuse University (N.Y.) head coach Jim Boeheim. Two more are due to be cut.

The United States has been placed in preliminary round Group A along with Argentina, Panama and Uruguay, and Group B consists of Brazil, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Keep in mind W&Ms Alex Smith (Panama) and UNCWs Vladie Kools (Canada) are also in the field.

The U.S. opens preliminary play July 25 facing Uruguay (10 p.m. Rio de Janeiro local time), then meets Panama on July 26 (7:45 p.m. Rio de Janeiro local time) and the U.S. closes out preliminary round action against Argentina on July 27 (7:45 p.m. Rio de Janeiro local time).

Semifinals will be held on July 28 and the finals will be played July 29.
