USA Basketball today announced the four athletes who will represent the United States at the 20-nation 2019 FIBA Men’s 3x3 U23 World Cup from Oct. 2-6 in Lanzhou, China. The USA team includes Ronald Fairrow III (Point Park University/Pickerington, Ohio), David Payne (Cleveland State University/Chicago, Ill.), Mark Shehady (Point Park University/Pittsburgh, Pa.) and Juwan Willis (Point Park University/Swissvale, Pa.).

Three athletes are from the current Point Park University basketball roster, including incoming junior forward Fairrow, junior guard Shehady and sophomore guard Willis.

Payne played basketball at Cleveland State University in 2017-18 and 2018-19, after starting at Lewis & Clark Community College in 2015-16 and Malcolm X College in 2016-17.

Traveling as the team advisor will be Joe Lewandowski, the head men’s basketball coach at Park Point University and a USA Basketball 3x3 regional coordinator.

The USA will play in Pool B, and will open play on Oct. 3 versus Romania at 6:55 a.m. (all times listed are EDT) and Latvia at 8:05 a.m. EDT, followed by games on Oct. 5 against Kazakhstan at 6:35 a.m. and China at 8:45 a.m.
