Former Alaska Anchorage men's basketball standout Jeremiah Trueman was named this week to the final roster for the New Zealand 'Tall Blacks' National Team.
The 6-9 forward will be one of 12 players on the squad that will vie for a 2012 London Games berth at the FIBA Olympics Qualifying Tournament in Caracas, Venezuela, July 2-8.
Trueman, from Stratford, New Zealand, played for the Seawolves from 2007-09, finishing as one of the most accurate shooters in program history. In 2007-08, he played in all 35 games as the top post reserve for UAA's 29-6, NCAA Div. II Final Four team, and in 2008-09 he was the Seawolves' second-leading scorer at 15.8 ppg.
Trueman has spent his first three professional seasons in Australia's National Basketball League, including the last two campaigns with the Perth Wildcats.
