Purdue and United States head coach Matt Painter, his staff and 21 of the nation's top college players are set to arrive in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Friday for the start of the 2011 USA Basketball Men's World University Games Team training camp.

The training camp, slated for July 29-Aug. 7, at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, will be used to select the 12-member team that will represent the USA at the 2011 World University Games in Shenzen, China (Aug. 13-22).

"I'm excited to get to Colorado Springs and get our training camp started," Painter said. "I love to coach the game of basketball, and we've got a group of young men coming in whom I'm really looking forward to working with. This should be a fun and beneficial experience for everyone involved."

Painter owns an international gold medal from his stint as an assistant coach on the 2009 USA U19 World Championship Team.
