Former Gonzaga point guard David Stockton is back with Team USA on the FIBA World Cup qualifying roster, according to a release from USA Basketball on Thursday.
Stockton is joined on the team by former BYU forward Eric Mika, as well as former Lakers guard Mac McClung (who was a transfer target for the Zags) and former Colorado point guard McKinley Wright.
Stockton is back with the team for the third time in the past seven months. He was with the team for qualifiers back in February, playing in two victories over Puerto Rico and Mexico and averaging 10.5 points and 3.5 assists while shooting 5-7 from deep.
He was named to the roster again in July but was unable to suit up because of a hand injury. Now he’s back with the squad as they prepare to face Uruguay on August 25 in Las Vegas before heading to Colombia for a game on August 29, in what will be the fourth of six 2023 FIBA World Cup qualifying windows.
Stockton played at Gonzaga from 2010-2014, averaging 4.8 points and 3.1 assists. He started all 36 games as a senior in 2013-14, averaging 7.4 points, 4.2 assists, and 1.5 steals.
