    I spoke with Puerto Rico FIBA U19 Operational Manager Xavier Miranda this morning who tells me that Julian Strawther will be on the World Cup team.

    Smile Congrats!

    This's great! This'll be, as always, a great training ground/experience whose fruit will carry over to Julian's b-ball at GU. Expecting great things for Julian in the U19/World Cup season and the Zags's 2021-'22 season.



    Excuse my ignorance on the news -- is this a reference to membership in the US Team or the Puerto Rico team?




    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    It sounds like the Puerto Rico team.

    Anyone know what is going on with Strawther? From KREM's Venkataraman:

    Miranda just called me again to say that Strawther is not with the team right now and has gone to Gonzaga to take care of some stuff. Miranda says Strawther’s departure has nothing to do with the FIBA team.

    Joel is the only one I can think of off the top of my head that benefitted more from leaving to play for FIBA instead of staying and training with the rest of the team in Spokane all summer.

    Petrusev had a pretty good FIBA tourney the summer before he was WCC player of the year.

    Good call. Yeah I know there must have been a few, but for the most pet I’m in the stay home camp.

    I'm no flag waver hooter, but perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent your heritage as opposed to going at it in the practice gym seems like kind of a no brainer to me.
    But we don't play nobody.

    Yep, whether it helps or not it still is a chance to represent their country. I can’t see where it hurts for a couple weeks

    and that's really the juxtaposition. Represent your country in a once in a life time event and miss out on the training at the school that will get you more/better pro exposure and attention for the long term.

    TSSF says Julian elected to leave the Puerto Rico camp because the facilities and infrastructure were not going to benefit him.

    Given Few’s support of USA Basketball I am sure he supports players’ choosing to play for their national teams.

    I think Julian is all in for the upcoming season and realizes he has much more to gain in spokane.

    Last preseason was shortened with covid and then sitting out because of the covid test really held him back.

    He has a huge upside and is really going to be great this season especially practicing with the guys in spokane. Old and new.
