July 17, 2007
University of Memphis forward Joey Dorsey was one of 12 players named today to the USA Pan American Games men's basketball team that will compete July 25-29 in Brazil.
Dorsey, a stalwart on last year's Elite Eight Tiger team, will be joined under the basket by Georgetown's Roy Hibbert.
"This was as difficult a decision as any I've been involved in with USA basketball," said USA coach Jay Wright. "Every kid here could play on this team and we would be proud to take them to Brazil."
Also selected to the team is Vanderbilt forward Shan Foster.
