"I think it's a tremendous accomplishment as Tony continues his career," Head Coach Mike Anderson said. "I know Coach Capel is excited about him being on the team and I received a text from Jeff earlier congratulating Tony. It's a tremendous honor to represent your country and it's one Tony and his family are looking forward to."
