I remember sitting in my room, staring at the walls and hoping someone would say something about the tournament, but no one ever did.
McLean, 19, played on N.S.U.’s 2015 national champion team and has a chance to make the final four. “
It’s hard to think about it in the summer, when we’ve already got a great team, and there’s still a lot to play for.”
McLean, 19, played on N.S.U.’s 2015 national champion team and has a chance to make the final four.
The junior shot 3-2 in his group’s final match, and has yet to win the tournament.
“I’m still learning a lot,” he said.
“I’m trying to do the best I can in every match.
I feel like I’m getting better.”
N.C.-Chattanooga senior Cody Odom, who was the 2014 runner-up to McLean’s record-setting performance at the event, said the team has taken a big step toward becoming a top-five team.
“It’s a good team,” Odom said.
Odom’s fellow North Carolina-Chattahoochee senior Dillon Deacon also is aiming to break McLean and McLean hopes to become the first American in tournament history to qualify for a finals.
He has only one match remaining.
The Badmassetten is the second-highest-ranked American team in the world after the U.S.-Netherlands U18s reached the quarterfinals in 2016 and will play a rematch of the 2015 final.
The U.K. men’s team also qualified for the tournament with an undefeated record and finished third.
The team is comprised of top American players, and many have played for the United States National Team.
It has also attracted plenty of international talent, including two of its top players, junior Dominic Oduro and senior Nick Van Oekel.
Nancy Dickson, who played for USA Basketball from 2010 to 2016, has been named the Badmans tournament MVP.
She was a member of the U-19 team that reached the final of the 2016 world championships.
“The Badmans is such a special team,” Dickson said.
“That team, I can’t tell you how much it means to me.
It’s really hard to compare to, and I’m proud to be part of it.”
The team also includes five women’s players, who are competing at the U19 Worlds in Las Vegas.
The team will be led by senior Lorna Krawczyk, who scored three career goals at the World Championships.
