Gator guard Frazier makes under-19 cut

GAINESVILLE — Florida sophomore guard and Tampa native Michael Frazier II made the first cut for the U.S. under-19 world championship team Sunday. He is among 16 players left vying for 12 spots.

The roster will be announced Wednesday then leave for three days of training at the Wizards' practice facility in Washington. The world championship is June 24-July 6 in Prague, Czech Republic.

"We had 26 really, really good players, and all of the guys made the selection very, very difficult," Florida and under-19 coach Billy Donovan said. "I think the thing that stands out about this team is just the athleticism, the speed and quickness, the ability to defend and put pressure on people and offensive rebound. The challenge right now is to see how these 16 guys fit into what we're trying to do."
