COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Basketball announced Thursday morning that New Albany incoming senior Romeo Langford has made the final 12-man roster of the USA U19 World Championship team.
Langford and his U19 teammates will play in the World Championships in July in Cairo, Egypt. The USA U19 squad is coached by University of Kentucky head men’s basketball coach John Calipari.
Langford averaged 28.7 points and 8.9 rebounds per game for the Bulldogs last season as a junior. He led New Albany to a fourth straight Hoosier Hills Conference championship and a fourth Class 4A Seymour Sectional title in a row.
As a sophomore, Langford helped the Bulldogs win the 2016 Class 4A state championship. It was the second state title in school history, with New Albany capturing its first state crown in 1973.
