DURHAM, N.C. -- U.S. Olympic team coach Mike Krzyzewski says the 12-man roster for this summer's Beijing Games will be released Monday.
Duke's Hall of Fame coach made the announcement Tuesday during
his annual summer news conference. He said selecting this year's
team will be "the toughest decision" for USA Basketball since it
started using professional players in 1992, noting there are more
qualified candidates than there are open roster spots.
Earlier this month, USA Basketball managing director Jerry
Colangelo said the U.S. would pick its squad without a tryout.
There are more than 30 players in the national team program, but he
said officials are down to about 14 names.
