Cal men’s basketball incoming freshman to play in exhibitions for Canada’s U19 National Team

Joel Brown, Cal men’s basketball’s potential point guard of the future, was one of 13 players selected to participate in a pair of exhibition games for Canada’s U19 Men’s National Team prior to the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup 2019.

After two exhibition games against New Zealand and France in Compiègne, France, Brown’s future with the national team will be decided as Canada finalizes its roster and heads to Heraklion, Greece, for the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup 2019.

Brown is part of a deep incoming class featuring D.J. Thorpe, Kuany Kuany, Dimitrios Klonaras and Lars Thiemann. Of those five, Thorpe is the only player who hails from the United States.
