Wisconsin Herd guard Travis Trice was named to the 12-man USA roster for the November USA World Cup Qualifying Team. Trice previously represented the USA in the September 2018 World Cup Qualifier.
“We’re proud to have Travis represent the Wisconsin Herd, USA Basketball and his country on Team USA,” said Herd General Manager Dave Dean. “The international experience is valuable in his continued development.”

Former NBA head coach Jeff Van Gundy, who led the USA to a 7-1 record in FIBA Americas World Cup Qualifying action and directed the USA 5-0 record and the gold medal at the 2017 FIBA AmeriCup Championship, will serve as head coach of the USA Basketball Men’s World Cup Qualifying Team.
