College of Charleston Senior guard Andrew Lawrence was one of twelve players to make the final cut and be named to the Great Britain national basketball team that will play in this month's Olympics in London on Thursday.

"Feel very privileged that I will be attending the 2012 London Olympics as the youngest player of Team GB basketball." Lawrence said on his Twitter account Thursday morning. "Made it!!"

Lawrence is one of just 2 players on the team that currently plays in the United States. The other is Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng.

The Cougars point guard lead the team in assists last year at 5.5 and was second on the team in scoring at 13 ppg.

This is just the 2nd time the team from Great Britain has qualified for the Olympics. They'll open play on July 29th.
