Northwestern junior guard Alex Marcotullio was named to the U20 Great Britain national team on Monday.

Marcotullio will play for Great Britain in the FIBA U20 Division B European championships next month in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

Marcotullio played for the U20 team last year and averaged 13.9 points and 1.7 steals to help Great Britain to a sixth-place finish. His maternal grandmother is from Scotland, which allows him to play for Great Britain.

Marcotullio averaged 6.2 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists for Northwestern as a sophomore. He scored in double figures in five of the Wildcats’ last six games.
