Gilbert Perry Koa Peat, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, is one of three 15-year-olds who have made the USA Basketball U17 team and will travel to Spain in a global competition next week. .

Peat is one of 12 players on the final roster. He missed Section 7 of last weekend’s Fiesta Bowl at State Farm Stadium to try out for the USA Basketball U17 team after receiving a coveted invite.
