MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Gophers sophomore Michael Hurt will pick up some overseas experience this summer as part of the USA East Coast team.

Hurt, a 6-7 former Rochester John Marshall standout, averaged about 6 minutes per game as a sophomore last season. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports (https://strib.mn/2sJI2EH ) that Hurt is one of 12 players chosen to travel to Madrid for a series of games in early August.

The competition will include teams from Senegal, Japan, Venezuela and Mexico.

The USA East Coast program was founded about a decade ago to expose college players to international competition and prepare them for a potential career overseas after playing college basketball.
