Xavier University of Louisiana’s Dannton Jackson is one of four selected as a court coach for the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team training camp June 5-7 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Jackson, South Carolina’s Frank Martin, Chattanooga State’s Jay Price and North Carolina Wesleyan’s John Thompson will assist the national team coaching staff and the 24 players who will attend the training camp, which will determine the 12-member U.S. roster for the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Brazil later in the month.
“It’s an honor to be able to represent, first of all the NAIA, as well as Xavier and our country,” Jackson said. “It will be an honor to work with some of the best coaches in the country, as well as some of the most talented under-18 players in the country. I’m looking forward to the experience and can’t wait to get to work.”
