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.
