Lake Clifton boys basketball coach Herman "Tree" Harried has been selected to USA Basketball's 2013-16 Developmental National Team Committee.
The seven-member committee is charged with selecting and developing teams for the 2013 and 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championships, 2014 and 2016 FIBA Under-17 World Championships, Developmental Minicamps each October and Nike Hoop Summit each April over the next four years.
Harried, who has coached Lake Clifton for 16 years, has previously served as a USA Basketball assistant coach. He was part of gold medal-winning teams in the first-ever FIBA Americas U-16 Championship (2009) in Mendoza, Argentina and first-ever FIBA U-17 World Championship (2010) in Hamburg, Germany. Herman also coached teams to wins in the 2005 and 2006 Nike Hoop Summits.
"It's a great honor and privilege to work with USA Basketball in this capacity," said Harried, a Dunbar and Syracuse grad who played professionally overseas. "It's a very exciting opportunity. Not only do I represent myself, but I also represent Baltimore City and the state as well.
Harried has guided Lake Clifton to three state championships, six region crowns and three Baltimore City titles.
