COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Grace College head coach Jim Kessler was announced as a court coach for the 2013 USA Basketball Men's World University Games training camp.
Kessler will assist USA Basketball's coaching staff during the team's training camp from June 24-July 1 for the 2013 Men's University Games.
The USA men will be coached by Davidson College's Bob McKillop and assisted by Michigan's John Beilein and South Carolina's Frank Martin. The 2013 World University Games are held in Kazan, Russia, from July 6-17.
"I'm highly honored to have the opportunity to contribute to USA Basketball. It's an honor for the NAIA to be included at this level. I think USA Basketball is recognizing there are a lot of good coaches at this level," Kessler said. "I'm thrilled at this opportunity to help pick and train players to represent us in Russia. If nothing else, I want to encourage these guys to represent us well. We'll go overseas with a target on our back as the United States, so we need to leave the all-star attitude behind, play hard and play together."
