    Team USA plays a college select team every year that the worlds are held. This is nothing new. The Select Team is who Team USA scrimmages against during minicamp and training camp. These are by no means college slouch players. Howard Thompkins has represented the USA before with the Under 19 squad.

    Shelvin Mack also played on the U19 team that won gold.
