Erie BayHawks point guard Blake Ahearn made the final 12-man roster for the USA Pan American Games Team.

Team USA made the announcement late Wednesday night. The squad will continue practicing in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the men’s tournament, which will run Oct. 26-30 in Guadalajara, Mexico. USA’s first game is against Dominican Republic.

The team consists of several D-League players that include three guys I predicted would make the team – point guard Jerome Dyson of the Tulsa 66ers, small forward Renaldo Major of the Dakota Wizards and forward Lance Thomas of the Austin Toros.

Ahearn will give USA that outside shooting threat and is money from the free throw line, as you can see below.

Veteran guard Blake Ahearn, who has starred for the Erie BayHawks the last two seasons, is still in the hunt for a spot on the USA Pan-American team.

Ahearn, who averaged 25.7 points in 13 games with Erie in 2009-10 and 16.9 in 31 games with Erie last season, made the cut from 21 to 15 players.

Training camp is scheduled to end Saturday. The final 12-man roster will play in the Pan-Am Games.

The men’s tournament is Oct. 26-30 in Guadalajara, Mexico. USA opens tournament play Oct. 26 against Dominican Republic.

When training camp began, I predicted point guard Jerome Dyson, small forward Renaldo Major and forward Lance Thomas would make the team.

Those three made the first cut as well.

Should be interesting to see how this pans out.

He’s getting his shot.

And if he’s on, combo guard Blake Ahearn stands a good chance of making the USA Pan American Team for the upcoming Pan-Am Games.

To be in this training camp, Ahearn had to sign a D-League contract for the 2011-12 season so Ahearn will be back with the Erie BayHawks for this season.

Ahearn averaged 16.9 points and 5.8 assists last season.

Training camp was scheduled to start Friday in Tulsa, Okla. Ahearn was one of 21 players invited to participate in the USA Pan American Games Team training camp that’s scheduled to end Oct. 22.

Ahearn can stroke the long-range shot, is nearly automatic from the free throw line (150-of-156 from the line for the Erie BayHawks in 2010-11), but can be liability on defense.

So depending on whether the coaches want an offensive or defensive team will factor into whether Ahearn makes the team.

The team will have a 12-man roster. The Pan American Games is Oct. 26-30 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will their summer league roster began playing in the Las Vegas Summer League beginning Tuesday. Going into his third season with Cleveland, power forward J.J. Hickson is scheduled to play as is forward Danny Green, who just finished his rookie season with the Cavaliers. 

The Cavaliers 2009 first-round pick, forward Christian Eyenga of the Congo, is also listed on the roster. The 6-foot-5 Eyenga didn’t play last season after deciding to remain overseas and play. 

The team also has some familiar names like Rashard McCants, who starred on the 2004 national championship for North Carolina and rookies Jerome Dyson of Connecticut and Manny Harris of Michigan.

Erie BayHawks coach John Treloar is also working as an assistant for the Cavaliers, who are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks along with the Toronto Raptors.

 Two things to notice about the schedule is the Cavaliers play against the Miami Heat, who LeBron James chose to sign with instead of the Cavaliers earlier this week, and the Milwaukee Bucks, who have Darnell Jackson, a player Cleveland let go this past season. Jackson is scheduled to play for the Bucks this summer.
