On Monday evening, Kansas announced that the men’s basketball team will compete in South Korea in the 2015 World University games from July 3-14, 2014. More information will be revealed on Tuesday as Bill Self, Sheahon Zenger and Craig Jonas, the head of the United States delegation, will meet with the media to discuss the World University Games. Jim Marchiony told the Lawrence Journal-World about the selection process: “USA (Basketball) sent feelers out to several high profile teams and they picked us out of the ones that responded. It’s a huge honor anytime you can represent your country like this.” The World University Games have occurred every two years since 1965. This is the first time an entire university was picked to represent the United States, as they normally pick  select college players to represent. The Games have been going on since 1965. They are held every two years. Normally tryouts are held for players to represent the U.S. on the team. The 2013 USA team included players such as Doug McDermott, Sean Kilpatrick, Adreian Payne, Treveon Graham, Luke Hancock and Cory Jefferson. You can view past rosters, statistics and results on the USA Basketball website. The last time a Jayhawk participated in the tournament was Jerod Haase in 1995. Other players from Kansas have appeared on the rosters including Adonis Jordan, Mark Randall, Ron Kellogg, Greg Dreiling, Dave Robisch and JoJo White.
