Florida guard Michael Frazier II survived the final cut late Monday and has made the Team USA 19-under roster.
Frazier was one of 12 players picked for the team by Florida coach Billy Donovan and assistants Shaka Smart (VCU) and Tony Bennett (Virginia). Frazier and Donovan will represent the Gators at the FIBA 19-under World Championships from June 27-July 7 in the Czech Republic.
Frazier will most likely be counted on as a 3-point shooter off the bench, similar to his role during his freshman season with the Gators, when he shot 46.9 percent (52-111) from beyond the arc.
Also making the Team USA 19-under roster were guard Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), forward/center Jarnell Stokes (Tennessee), guard Rasheed Sulaimon (Duke), forward/center Mike Tobey (Virginia), forward Montrezl Harrell (Louisville), guard Elfrid Payton (Louisiana-Lafayette), forward Jerami Grant (Syracuse), center Jahlil Okafor (Whitney Young H.S., Chicago), forward Aaron Gordon (Archbishop Mitty H.S., San Jose, Calif.), forward Justise Winslow (St. John's High School, Houston, Texas) and guard Nigel Williams-Goss (Findlay Prep, Happy Valley, Ore.)
