Theo Pinson uses USA Basketball exclusion for motivation

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

When USA Basketball unveiled the final 12-man roster for the U17 World Championship games, Theo Pinson's name was nowhere to be found. Pinson, a 6-5 shooting guard who's ranked No. 14 in the class of 2014, was passed over for players without the same international experience -- Pinson played for the FIBA Americas U16 team last year -- and hype. Instead of sulking about missing out, Pinson used to it prepare for a big summer. (CBS Sports)
