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.
