Thompkins has big summer ahead

Georgia's Trey Thompkins has a busy summer ahead.

The rising sophomore was recently picked as one of the nation's most talented 19-and-under basketball players, 17 of which have been selected to attend the 2009 USA U19 National Team Trials held June 16-18 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

After the trials, the USA Basketball Men's Junior National Team Committee is expected to announce finalists for the 12-member USA U19 World Championship Team roster. Training camp for the selected finalists will begin June 19, with the 12-member USA roster being announced prior to the teams' departure for New Zealand on June 25.

Thompkins, from Lithonia, was named to the 5-man Coaches' SEC All-Freshman team in 2009. He ranked second on the Georgia team in scoring at 12.6 points per game and led the Bulldogs in rebounding at 7.4 per contest. He scored 20 or more points on five occasions and had a team-high four double-doubles.
