FIBA, the international governing body for the game of basketball, is shifting its various championships to more of a World Cup-style event going forward. It was previously known as the FIBA World Championship and in 2002 the senior tournament was hosted in Indianapolis. A few years ago Caleb Swanigan played for the Under-19 team that won gold, and now Purdue may have another representative this summer.

Carsen Edwards was named today as 1 of 28 invitees to the final training camp in Colorado Springs from June 18-25. If selected he will then play in the World Cup in Cairo, Egypt July 1-9.

Obviously that would make for a very busy summer, but in a span of about 7 weeks Carsen could, in theory, be named a two-time world champion.

Here are the remaining members of the training camp:

Desmond Bane (TCU)

Bol Bol

Marques Bolden (Duke)

Chaundree Brown

Devon Daniels (NC State)

Hamidou Diallo (Kentucky)

Malachi Flynn (Washington State)

Kevin Huerter (Maryland)

Louis King

De’Anthony Melton (USC)

Charlie Moore (Kansas)

Chuma Okeke

Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech)

Payton Pritchard (Oregon)

Immanuel Quickly

Cameron Reddish

Mitchell Robinson

Quinton Rose (Temple)

Jeremiah Tilmon

P.J. Washington

Austin Wiley (Auburn)

Kris Wilkes

Wilkes and Langford are also in-state prospects. Wilkes is the reigning Mr. Basketball and is headed to UCLA, while Langford is a high school senior-to-be and one of the most sought-after recruits in America.
