By Kelly Rakusin | November 20, 2018

It was announced by USA Basketball today that Chasson Randle, the Go-Go’s second-leading scorer on the season at 27.7 points per game, will participate in FIBA World Cup Qualifying training camp and games from Nov. 23-Dec. 2.

Randle recently helped lead the 2018 USA World Cup Qualifying Team to a 2-0 record during the 2018 September second-round games against Uruguay and Panama, where he averaged 20.5 minutes, 9.0 points, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game.

Randle will begin training in Houston at the Rockets’ practice facility from Nov. 23-25 before traveling with the team to face Argentina in La Rioja on Nov. 29, and Uruguay on Dec. 2 in Montevideo.

The Go-Go have re-acquired Devin Sweetney to fill the roster void during Randle’s 10 days with Team USA.
