July 18, 2007

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - University of Maryland senior forward James Gist was named Tuesday to the final 12-man roster for the 2007 USA Pan American Games men's basketball team.

An initial pool of 30 players was selected in June and cut down to 14 members on Sunday. The selections were made after USA Basketball conducted five trials sessions last week and four practices this week at Haverford (Pa.) College.

Gist, who helped the Terrapins to a 25-9 record last season, started 33 games and played in every contest for Maryland during his junior season. He was named honorable mention All-ACC as he ranked third on the team and 23rd in the ACC in scoring (12.6 ppg). Gist was the team's leading scorer in conference play with 13.9 points per contest.

Gist was fourth in the ACC in blocked shots (2.12 bpg) and seventh in rebounding (7.2 rpg). The Silver Spring native scored in double figures 28 times as a junior and posted six double-doubles. He blocked 72 shots and ranks eighth all-time at Maryland with 154 career blocked shots.
