The new roster sees Matthew Kenyon, Jayden Hodgson and Matthew McCarthy cut from last month's training camp squad. The newest additions to the squad are new Eastern Washington transfer, Geremy McKay, as well as Hartford commit, George Blagojevic, who missed the first camp due to injury.
Louisville signee Deng Adel tells us that he won't be available for the campaign, rounding out the Australian talent based in the US who won't be participating.
The expectation is that there will be a final camp in the first week of June before departing for Spain on the 10th of June for a Pre-Worlds tour. The tour will consist of practice games in Spain and Croatia, before the team flies out to Heraklion, Greece on the 22nd of June for the World Championship.
The Australian U19 Emus will be in Group C at the event, going up against Canada, Italy and Tunisia in the group stage.
