Kentucky Wildcats signee Isaiah Briscoe has made the roster for the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Championship Team, per ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Briscoe was among 24 players who originally accepted invitations for the training camp, and today, the roster was trimmed to 12 players with Briscoe making it through final cuts. For the past month, Briscoe has been training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Briscoe, a 6-foot-3 point guard from Newark, N.J., has previous USA Basketball experience, having helped Team USA to a gold medal at the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship. By going 5-0 and winning that championship, the U19 team qualified for the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship.

Arizona head coach Sean Miller will lead the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Championship Team. The 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship will be held June 27 through July 5 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

Congratulations to Briscoe on this honor.
