Brockman said cut from Pan Am team

Andy Katz at ESPN.com is reporting that the list of finalists for the Pan American Games team has been set and that Jon Brockman has not made the cut.
Here’s the story, which includes the observation that Brockman was said to have had his best practice on Saturday of the five the team had conducted, but hadn’t done enough earlier in the process to hang on.
Four Pac-10 players were reported to have made the list of 14 finalists — Derrick Low and Kyle Weaver of Washington State and Maarty Leunen and Bryce Taylor of Oregon.
The team will be cut to its final number of 12 by next weekend.
For Brockman, it apparently means a trip home this week where he can continue getting ready for next season, specifically, the team’s trip to Greece in late August-early September.
As Katz notes, that two players each from WSU and Oregon made the list of finalists will only bolster the repuation of those two teams — as well as the Pac-10.
Leunen, in particular, figures to really boost his rep if he can make the final roster.
