Sumpter to join USA Basketball Competition Committee

Curtis Sumpter, who played for USA Basketball at the 2010 Pan-Am games, will play a part in the USA Basketball organization on the competition committee.

Villanova alumnus and current assistant coach Curtis Sumpter has represented the United States in international competition on two occasions, as part of the 2004 USA under-20 National Team, and most recently as a part of the team that represented USA Basketball at the 2010 Pan American Games in Mexico. Today it was announced that Sumpter was appointed to a seat on the 2013-16 USA Basketball Competition Committese, serving the USA Basketball organization off the court.

The committees have both representatives from USA Basketball member institutions as well as athlete representatives like Sumpter.

"We are fortunate to have terrific representatives for each of these committees," said USA Basketball Executive Director/CEO Jim Tooley. "These are the committees that identify our coaches and players for our national teams, and we put together another collection of talented and dedicated committee members to help us continue to win gold medals."

Sumpter specifically joins the 2013-16 Men's Junior National Committee, which selects coaches and athletes for the college-aged competitions; including the 2013 and 2015 FIBA U19 World Championships, the 2014 and 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championships, the 2013 and 2015 World University Games and the 2015 Pan American Games.

According to Villanova.com:

The 2013-16 Men's Junior National Committee is chaired by Jim Boeheim (head coach, Syracuse University) and includes NCAA appointees Bob McKillop (head coach, Davidson College), Matt Painter (head coach, Purdue University) and Lorenzo Romar (head coach, University of Washington), as well as athlete representative Curtis Sumpter, a member of the 2011 Pan American Games Team and the 2004 USA U20 National Team.
