The USA Basketball Under 22 national team will hold workouts all next week at Allen Fieldhouse.

Practices are open to the public, coach Roy Williams has reported.

The team, which will compete in the COPABA Under 22 qualifying tournament on June 14-20 in Rosario, Argentina, will practice from 9 to 10 p.m. on Monday. Two-a-days will be held from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.

The team will work out from noon until 2 p.m. on Thursday, then compete in a game against a team of former college players at 9 p.m. Thursday. Admission will be free. The team will conclude workouts from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. Friday.

KU assistant coach Steve Robinson will coach the team that will square off against the U.S Under 22 stars Thursday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

"It's a go," Robinson said of the game. "Right now, it is on the schedule. My job is to get the players."

He's not ready to release any names, though some former Jayhawks have been contacted.

"We're still in the stages of getting guys," he said. "It's a thing where we'll be trying to win the game and they'll want to win the game. We're trying to put together a good team."

Under 22 team members are Steve Woodberry, Kansas; Cory Alexander, Virginia; Adrian Autry, Syracuse; Joey Brown and Othella Harrington, Georgetown; Bill Curley, Boston College; Eddie Jones, Temple; Donyell Marshall, Connecticut; Cherokee Parks, Duke; Wesley Person, Auburn; Theo Ratliff, Wyoming; Stevin Smith, Arizona State; Monty Williams, Notre Dame; Corliss Williamson, Arkansas.
