Four months before the opening ceremony of the 18th Maccabiah, the United States announced its basketball roster for the Games in July. University of Tennessee Volunteers coach Bruce Pearl will guide the team, with Harris Adler of Lasalle University and Doug Gottlieb, ESPN college basketball analyst and former Oklahoma State University and Notre Dame player, named as assistants. Jon Scheyer of Duke University is perhaps the biggest name on the roster. The 21-year-old is in his third season in Duke University and is one of the team's best players, averaging 14.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this season. Other players to make the team include Derek Glasser of Arizona State University, Steven Gruber from Brown University, Zachary Rosen of University of Pennsylvania and the head coach's son from Tennessee, Steven Pearl. Also on the team is Daniel Grunfeld, whose father Ernie played in the Maccabiah in 1973 and is now the President of the NBA's Washington Wizards.
