From Associated Press reports
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.
Navy's David Robinson and
Kansas' Danny Manning were sup
posed to make the cut after a week
of tryouts for the U.S. men's Olympic
basketball team, and they did. Stan
ford's Todd Lichti and Central
Michigan's Dan Majerle were barely
know n, and they made it, too.
That's the range of the 86 players,
out of the original 92, named by
Georgetown coach John Thompson
on Tuesday to compete in a compli
cated selection process for the 12
member team to defend the U.S. gold
medal in the Summer Games at
Seoul, South Korea, in September.
In all, as many as 30 players could
still be in the running for the actual
sixteen players from the initial
trials, led by Robinson and Manning
and including relative unknowns
Lichti, Majerle, Cal-Santa Barbara's
Brian Shaw and Southern Mississip
pi's Randolph Keys, invited to the
final camp at Georgetown University
on July 10;
ten other players, including high
school prodigy Alonzo Mourning of
Chesapeake, Va., to join Robinson
on a USA Select Team which will
tour Europe and eventually send four
to eight more competitors to the
up to four other players who will
compete for the final roster spot on
the USA Select Team.
In addition to Robinson, the 1986
87 Player of the Year at Navy and
the NB A's No. 1 draft choice last year,
and Manning, certain to be the NBA's
No. 1 draft choice this year after
leading Kansas to the national
championship, the familiar names
who will assemble at Georgetown

Arizona and Hersey Hawkins of
