Good news for the Cardinal. It's looking like both Robin and Brook will be seeing action in the World Championships in Turkey in 2010. Marc Spears from Yahoo Sports reports.

I say good news for the Cardinal, but probably meh news for Team USA. I know Robin's made some strides to become the starting center, and has shown he can bang for rebounds with the big boys (as evidenced during his performance against Gasol and Bynum), but it's hard to see how his talents translate to the international stage, when he'll be called upon to defend the rim against driving guards.

Brook is solid though. Can't feel too bad about him being your starting center. He's no Dwight Howard, but who is?

Don't expect the twins on the floor at the same time like in their Stanford days though. That's a nightmare reserved only for the ghosts of the Pac-10 hardwood.
