Brunson named MVP of 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship, headlines All-Star Five

HERAKLION (2015 FIBA U19 World Championship) - United States guard Jalen Brunson was rewarded for playing a great tournament and leading his team to a successful title defence at the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship by receiving the Most Valuable Player awarded, presented by Tissot.

Brunson had 14 points and 7 assists in the USA's 79-71 win over Croatia in the Final, as the Americans repeated as U19 Worlds winners. It marks the first time a team successfully defends its title in the tournament since the US did so back in 1983.

The 19-year-old playmaker headlined the All-Star Five and was joined by his team-mate Harry Giles, Croatia's Marko Arapovic, Furkan Korkmaz of Turkey and Greece's Tyler Dorsey.
