Justin Sears nabs Great Britain roster slot

Justin Sears, 2016 Yale graduate and two-time Ivy Player of the Year, was named to Great Britain’s preliminary roster for this summer’s EuroBasket 2017 Qualification Games, according to British Basketball.

Sears is one of 24 players named to the preliminary roster, from which 16 will attend training camp next month.

Sears signed a professional contract with Germany’s Giessen 46ers in June after having helped lead Yale to its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1962 in March.

British Basketball players and coaches will convene at a training camp in Portugal in early August.

Sears’ former teammate, junior Makai Mason, is currently training with the German National team, as is Columbia 2016 graduate Maodo Lo.
