Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart was invited to the U.S. men's national team mini-camp in Las Vegas on Wednesday, becoming the only college player asked to attend.
"It is a great honor to be invited to participate with the USA men's national team," Smart said in a statement released by Oklahoma State. "The other players at the mini-camp are NBA professionals who I look up to and respect. I'm excited to learn from them and to compete against them."
Smart has already represented the United States on the court before. He previously led the nation's U-18 and U-19 teams to championships over the last two summers. He averaged 9.6 points per game as team captain of the U-19 squad.
A total of 29 players, including Smart, have agreed to attend.
"We're very excited for Marcus," Cowboys coach Travis Ford said in the release. "It's an incredible honor to be the lone college player to be selected. It's a great honor for him and our program. He continues to represent us in a first-class manner, both on and off the court."
