Dominique Jones has made a significant splash in the Big East. This summer, he’ll have a chance to make a bigger splash on a much larger scale.

Jones is one of 17 college hoops starts invited to the USA Men’s World University Games Team camp in Colorado Springs June 16-24 with a chance to make the 12-team roster, which will leave June 25 for the World University Games in Serbia.

“This is a great opportunity for Dominique,” said USF coach Stan Heath in a statement. “He deserves this, now it is up to him to make the best of it. His experience the last two years should prepare him for the trials. Not only will he gain experience but grow as a student-athlete during the process.”

Jones was named Honorable Mention All-Big East and joins 15 other confirmed members of the camp, including Clemson’s Trevor Booker, West Virginia’s Da’Sean Butler, Kansas’ Sherron Collins, Villanova’s Corey Fisher, Marquette’s Lazar Hayward and North Carolina’s Deon Thompson.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan will coach the team.
