Derrick Jones, a sophomore forward from Archbishop Carroll, was added Tuesday to U.S. Basketball's Under-16 Developmental National Team.

Horace Spencer III, a sophomore center from William Tennent, was previously named to the team.

Jones and Spencer will travel to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. on Friday for the week-long mini camp. The final 12-man team will be selected from a pool of 31 players and announced prior to the team's departure for the June 11's FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Uruguay.

 "After looking at our initial roster we felt these eight guys would fit in to the mix as far as versatility and guard play, especially,” said USA head coach Don Showalter (Iowa City H.S., Iowa). “They’re good additions to have. All eight of them have a great shot at making our USA U16 National Team."
