Pitt's Ashton Gibbs and Cameron Wright are hoping to stay busy this Summer. But not playing in the Greentree Summer League, but by suiting up for USA Basketball.

Cameron Wright is getting a tryout with the Under-19 team. This is, of course, the same team that Ashton Gibbs played on and that Jamie Dixon coached. If Wright makes the team, it's pretty much a non-stop ride for almost a month. He is one of 21 players invited for the training camp from June 17 - 24 and the selected team will play in the championships from June 30 - July 10.

One thing to point out is that if Wright does make the team, he would miss that aforementioned Summer league that tips off June 20.

Ashton Gibbs, meanwhile, is trying out for the World University Games, which is a similar type of deal. Tryouts are held July 29 - August 7 with the tournament being held August 12 - 23. Among Gibbs' potential coaches? Brad Stevens of Butler.

Oh, man.
