Recent Greenfield School graduate Coby White earned yet another honor Tuesday when he was one of 12 players named to the USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team that will compete in the FIBA Americas Championships in Canada later this week.

White, a University of North Carolina recruit and The Wilson Times Athlete of the Year, was part of the 33 players invited to the team’s training camp in Colorado.

The other players are Cole Anthony, Ayo Dosunmu, Quentin Grimes, Kamaka Hepa, Matthew Hurt, Trayce Jackson-Davis, Josiah James, Tyrese Maxey, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Mark Watts Jr.

Grimes played in the McDonald’s All-America Game with White in March.

The team is coached by Kansas head coach Bill Self with Wake Forest’s Danny Manning and Dayton’s Anthony Grant as assistant coaches.
