USA Basketball announced today it is moving its headquarters from Colorado Springs, Colo., to Tempe.

The move, reported Tuesday night by the Arizona Republic, is a potential recruiting boon not only for ASU but also UA, since top youth prospects train and tryout there and can make easy (and virtually free) stopovers for unofficial visits to Tucson.

This summer alone, USA Basketball hosted Aaron Gordon, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Brandon Ashley in Colorado Springs for the U19 tryouts, while 2015 UA target Ivan Rabb played for the U16 team.
