Tony Mitchell selected to USA U19 squad
It’s Mitchell’s second selection to a USA squad. Mitchell was a member of the 2010 USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team that went 5-0 and won gold at the 2010 FIBA Americas U18 Championship. Mitchell averaged 8.2 points, seven rebounds and 1.5 blocks.
Mitchell led Pinkston to the regional finals his senior year and was named 2010 all-region selection, 2010 Texas Class 4A All-State, 2010 Texas 12-4A Player of the Year and 2010 Slam Magazine All-American. He averaged 20.5 points, 11 rebounds and five assists in 36 games.
The 24th ranked recruit in ESPNU’s class of 2010 signed a letter of intent with Missouri but was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA on Jan. 5, 2011. Mitchell has since transferred to North Texas but is not eligible to play until at least the second semester of the 2011-12 school year.
Mitchell is one of 12 players selected on the roster that will leave for Europe on Friday and compete at the FIBA U19 World Championship in Latvia from June 30-July 10.
