Kevin Knox wins Gold

Kevin Knox has had a very memorable summer.  He was invited to try out for the USA U17 National team, a tryout that took place at the Olympic training center in Colorado in late June.  Kevin had made the U16 National team the previous summer, but that was no guarantee that he would make the U17 team.  He played extremely well during the tryouts and was selected as one of the 12 players to represent the USA in the FIBA U17 World Championships to be held in Spain in early July.  The USA went undefeated in the FIBA tournament defeating Turkey in the Gold medal championship game.  Kevin now has won 2 Gold medals representing our country as the U16 team won Gold last summer in Argentina.  Congratulations Kevin.
