— Kansas' Kevin Pritchard and Mark Randall and 64 other players were invited Thursday to the national men's basketball team trials by USA Basketball.

Twelve players selected from the trials, scheduled May 17-22 at the Olympic Training Center, will represent the U.S. in both the Goodwill Games and the World Championships this summer.

The team will be coached by Mike Krzyzewski whose Duke team lost 103-73 to Nevada-Las Vegas in the NCAA championship game.

Four starters from the UNLV team Anderson Hunt, Greg Anthony, Stacey Augmon and Larry Johnson were invited to the trials.

Other Big Eight players invited were Kansas State's Steve Henson, Oklahoma State's Byron Houston, Anthony Peeler and Doug Smith of Missouri, Colorado's Shaun Vandiver, and Brent Price who was a red-shirt at Oklahoma last season.

ALSO INVITED was Danny Ferry, who played for Krzyzewski at Duke and was the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft last year by the Los Angeles Clippers. He opted to play in Italy this season and his NBA rights were traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Krzyzewski will chair the Player Selection Subcommittee which is made up of coaches P.J. Carlesimo of Seton Hall, Lon Kruger of Florida, Reggie Minton of Air Force, George Raveling of Southern Cal and Ron Slaymaker of Emporia State.

Krzyzewski's coaching staff will include Carlesimo, Jim Boeheim of Syracuse and Joe Harrington of Colorado.
