I heard the players who made the World University Games have been told. Does anyone have a complete list of who was selected?

The World University Games Team was being picked from the USA White and USA Red rosters which played this past weekend. And Coach Schroeder is using this tournament as an opportunity to train younger guys for future Olympics.

That was sticking to the topic. In the past the university coach had a lot of decision in who traveled.

It is good seeing the roster, it was a more well round approach to selecting the team. Good for Schroeder.

........

Point of Note... Trent Calder played at CAL last year.

The Universiade is an International multi-sport event, organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU). The name is a combination of the words "University" and "olympiad". The Universiade is often referred to in English as the World University Games or World Student Games; however, this latter term can also refer to competitions for sub-University grades students, as well.
