Love Named Team USA Finalist

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has been named one of 20 finalists for the United States Olympic men’s basketball team that will compete in London this summer.

Love played on the team that won gold at the World Championships in Turkey in 2010. He is averaging 25 points and 14.6 rebounds for the Timberwolves this season and leads the league with 12 double-doubles. He also leads the league in minutes played and is second in rebounding and free throws made.

Love is one of four power forwards on the list of 20 finalists, along with Blake Griffin, Chris Bosh and Lamar Odom. The roster will eventually be pared down to 12 players who will defend Team USA’s gold medal from the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
