Purdue Basketball: Carsen Edwards Makes the USA Basketball Team!

Carsen made the cut!

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Purdue vs Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The U-19 USA Basketball Team was announced via Twitter today. Good news for us Boilermaker fans too. C-Boogie made the team!

Carsen averaged just over 10 points per game as a freshman this past season. I fully expect him to make another step this year and up his totals, as a full time starter. Carsen’s summer is officially booked.

In July, he will be in Egypt for the U-19 World Championships. Then in August, he will be back with the team, headed to Taipei for the World University Games. What an opportunity for a young man that has such a bright future.

By the time school starts back in late August, Carsen could have 2 gold medals to his name. Something most Sophomores in college can never say in their lives. Carsen is going to tear it up these next two months! Boilers Up!
