Davis fails to make Team USA roster

Posted: Updated:

He won a national championship, multiple national player-of-the-year awards, and was taken first in the NBA draft, but Anthony Davis will not win a gold medal this year in the London Olympic Games.

The announcement was made Saturday night that the former UK forward has been left off the Team USA roster for the Olympics. Davis was trying to overcome a fairly severe ankle sprain last week, and was one of 15 players battling for 12 spots. Former IU guard Eric Gordon also failed to make the team.

Here is the released 12-man Team USA roster:

Knicks' forward Carmelo Anthony

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant

Thunder forward Kevin Durant

Clippers forward Blake Griffin

Thunder guard James Harden

Sixers' guard/forward Andre Iguodala

Heat forward LeBron James

Timberwolves forward Kevin Love

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook

Nets guard Deron Williams.
