Jon Leuer Most Impressive in Team USA Workouts


Yesterday, Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright named University of Wisconsin standout Jon Leuer to the 10-man Select Team that will train against Team USA in New York Aug. 9-13, preparing them for the FIBA World Championships.

In a recent interview with Gary Parrish of, Wright declared Leuer the best college player at last month’s camp in Las Vegas.

“Maybe I haven’t followed him as well because he’s from the Midwest, and maybe he wouldn’t surprise anybody else. But he’s got great size, he puts it on the floor, he passes it, he can shoot it. He’s just a ballplayer,” Wright said.

I recently had a conversation with Leuer, and discussed what he’s doing to improve his game.
