Pitt senior guard Ashton Gibbs was named to the USA Basketball World University Games team, while West Virginia center Aaric Murray missed the cut for the 12-man roster.

The team, coached by Purdue’s Matt Painter, will represent the USA at the 2011 World University Games Aug. 13-23 in Shenzhen, China.

 

In all, 24 countries will compete in the international competition.

 

In 2009, Gibbs helped lead the USA Under-19 team to a gold medal at the FIBA World Championships in New Zealand.
