Tide's Green World Games Finalist
Upcoming Alabama senior JaMychal Green is one of 14 student-athletes selected after three days of workouts that will continue to compete for the opportunity to represent the United States at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China. The final roster of 12 will be announced prior to the team's departure on August 8.
"It's an honor to make it to this point and still have the opportunity out there to go compete and represent my country," said Green. "I think I showed the coaches a lot the last three days by knocking down open shots, rebounding well and playing hard."
Green and the other 14 finalists will have two practices a day at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., before the final roster announcement and departure for China.
"I definitely have a better feel for this experience and international competition," said Green who also competed for USA Basketball as a member of the U18 team in the World Championships in 2008. "After winning silver my last time, I'm looking forward to the opportunity to win a gold medal."
Green's teammate, Tony Mitchell, was also in the initial pool of 22 student-athletes competing for a roster spot, but was not selected as one of the 14 finalists.
