USA Basketball expands through iHoops


Posted Dec 7, 2012 7:20 PM

New York (AP) -- USA Basketball is expanding its reach into youth basketball by partnering with iHoops, the joint initiative formed the NBA and NCAA to improve programs for young players.

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo says Friday the move is "an opportunity to make a big impact" on the development of young players and will help his organization find elite players who could eventually play for U.S. national teams.

iHoops was formed in 2009 and Colangelo says he always believed it would be a part of USA Basketball because his organization has the leadership and business components in place to make it successful.

iHoops will transition from its Indianapolis office to USA Basketball's headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colo., after the new year.
