Hoops - Gani Lawal makes TeamUSA cut

Congrats to Gani Lawal who made the cut of final 16 young men that could represent team USA in the Under 18 National Team Trials. The roster will be cut to 12 later in the week.

In one session, Gani scored 19 points on 6-7 from the floor and 7-7 from the stripe, as well as grabbing 6 boards, blocking 4 shots and getting 2 steals (although he did have 4 turnovers). However, he was very active, particularly on the defensive end..... We'll see if he can make the final cut this week.
