Kentucky freshmen Hamidou Diallo and PJ Washington have been named to the Team USA U19 team, it was announced Thursday morning.

The team, coached by John Calipari, will head to Cairo, Egypt for the FIBA World Cup that starts on July 1st.

2018 Kentucky targets Romeo Langford, Cameron Reddish, Immanuel Quickly and Louis King also made the roster. Five-star 2018 center Bol Bol did not make the roster. Kevin Knox looked likely to make the roster until yesterday when he tweaked his hamstring. Calipari thought it would be best if Knox went back to Lexington to get ready for the upcoming season.
