The future of Big 12 basketball is set to be represented on the 2023 USA U19 National team with two Big 12 basketball commits representing the league in the FIBA U19 Men’s World Cup, scheduled for June 24-July 2 in Debrecen, Hungary.
The two players representing the Big 12 Conference on the national team are Iowa State’s five-star power forward commit, Omaha Biliew, and Oklahoma State’s four-star power forward commit, Eric Dailey.
According to a report from CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, Biliew and Dailey will be joined by Villanova commit Mark Armstrong, Tennessee commit Tobe Awaka, Arizona commit Kylan Boswell, Purdue commit Myles Colvin, Vanderbilt commit Van Lubin, Colorado commit Cody Williams, and four players who remain uncommitted in Dylan Harper, Ian Jackson, Tre Johnson, and Asa Newell.
The Big 12 Conference has one more major tie into the 2023 FIBA U19 Men’s World Cup with Oklahoma State head basketball coach, Mike Boynton set to join Colorado’s Tad Boyle and Boise State’s Leon Rice on the coaching staff for the event.
Fans of the Big 12 will get to see the future commits in action when the United States U19 team plays its first game against Madagascar on June 24th, followed by a matchup with Slovenia on June 25th, before concluding pool play with a final game against Lebanon on June 27th.
