DALLAS -- Connecticut junior center Josh Boone has an aching back but will still tryout for the U-21 USA Basketball national team.

Boone, counted on to be one of the potential starters on this team, informed the USA Basketball staff of his injury when he arrived here Wednesday. He told the staff that he would try to see how his back responded to the first morning of practice Thursday at the Dallas Mavericks' practice facility at American Airlines Arena.
