Pitt point guard James Robinson is one of 16 finalists for the USA Basketball team that will compete in the FIBA Under-19 world championships this summer.

Robinson, a sophomore from Mitchellville, Md., made the first cut from 26 players who participated in four training sessions. The squad will be trimmed to 12 players before June 19, when it will train three days at the Washington Wizards practice facility.

The world championships will be played June 24 to July 6 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Robinson was a member of the USA Basketball Under-18 team that went 5-0 last summer in qualifying for the world championships.
