While many Americans will spend their weekend trying to avoid the heat Kentucky's Darius Miller will be placing the heat on himself.
Beginning this afternoon Miller will spend the next few days competing for a spot with Team USA for the World University Games.
This is a familiar position for Miller, who has played for Team USA in the past.
Players will be under the gun to produce quickly and prove their worth to the team as the selection process will be very quick.
Team USA is slated to name the finalists for the team on Sunday and begin preparation for the games that afternoon.
The 2011 World University Games will be held in Shenzhen, China from August 13th to August 22nd. Team USA has never failed to medal in the games.
