Reggie Perry will represent both Mississippi State and America as a member of the USA Basketball Team that will compete at the FIBA U19 World Cup in Greece this summer.
"I'm very honored and blessed with this opportunity to represent my country," Perry said. "This experience means a lot to me and my family and is the beginning of something miraculous."
Perry will travel overseas with his team on June 24 and the 16-team tournament will be held from June 29-July 7. Team USA will play in Group A against Lithuania (June 29), New Zealand (June 30) and Senegal (June 2). After round robin play ends, the rest of the tournament continues July 3-7.
The 6-foot-10 rising sophomore forward from Thomasville, Georgia averaged 9.7 points and 7.2 rebounds last season and was a member of the Freshman All-SEC team.
