Team USA Is Training in Tulsa

Posted: Updated:

The Men's USA National Basketball Team is training right here in Tulsa for the 2011 Pan-Am Games.

They head to the games in Guadalajara, Mexico on Sunday.                  

Tulsa 66ers Head Coach Nate Tibbetts is getting team USA ready to face the Dominican Republic next Wednesday.

They are looking to be the first US Men's Basketball team to bring home Pan-Am gold since Michael Jordan and company did it back in 1983.

They are a couple of former ORU stars on the team including Marcus Lewis and Moses Ehambe.

Moses says it's an amazing feeling to represent the red, white and blue.
