USA Basketball affords former Tulane star Cameron Reynolds second World Cup Qualifying opportunity
NEW ORLEANS – Tulane men’s basketball alum Cameron Reynolds has been selected for a second tour of competition with USA Basketball’s World Cup qualifying team in an announcement Thursday night.
Reynolds is one of just four players invited by USA Basketball to return from the last round of qualifying, which took place in Argentina and Uruguay in November 2018.
Former NBA head coach Jeff Van Gundy, who has led Team USA to an 8-2 record in FIBA Americas World Cup Qualifying action and earned the United States a qualifying berth for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup, again is head coach of the squad. The USA has already captured a qualifying berth for 2019 FIBA World Cup.
The USA team will play with a pair of home second round games, Feb. 22 versus Panama (3-6) and Feb. 25 versus Argentina (9-1). Both games will be held at the Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. The full Americas World Cup Qualifying schedule/results is available at usab.com/mens/wc-qualifying/schedule.aspx.
Reynolds is enjoying an impressive debut season in professional basketball with the Stockton Kings – the NBA G-League affiliate of the Sacramento Kings. In 33 games, he is averaging 16.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game while shooting 46 percent overall and 42 percent beyond the 3-point arc in 28 minutes per contest.
