MAKING THE CUT . . . Stanford sophomore Anthony Brown finds himself in pretty good company after surviving the final cut and being named to the 12-player United States U19 World Championship team on Thursday. Brown, who earned a starting role for the Cardinal as a freshman last year, will be joined by Arizona State recruit Jahii Carson from the Pac-10. Brown was Stanford's third-leading scorer last year, averaging 8.7 points in 30 games, 12 starts. He made 42 three-pointers. The team completed its domestic training Thursday at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Americans leave Friday for Europe. The USA squad will train June 25-28 in Lithuania. The Americans will face the Lithuania U20 National Team in an exhibition game on June 26 in Panevrzys, Lithuania, and then meet the Lithuania U19 National Team on June 28 in Vilnius, Lithuania. The 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship for Men is being held June 30-July 10 in Valmiera, Liepaja and Riga, Latvia.
