Mike Krzyzewski plans to cut Team USA roster to 12 by Saturday
Head coach Mike Krzyzewski plans to cut the Team USA roster from 16 to 12 by Saturday.
In a postgame press conference on Wednesday, Krzyzewski said the coaching staff has been going through various possible combinations for each game to figure out the best roster to use for the world tournament:
"We'll get down (to 12). We'll do something before we leave the country. I don't know what that means, to get down to 12. We'll get down to a lower number. We have to do that. Each game, we sit down as a staff with Jerry and put names on the board and combinations and figure things out. Every day it's a little bit different. It'll be different tonight with the performances that we've had."
Team USA opens group play in Bilbao on Aug. 30 with a game against Finland.
