“I’m incredibly pleased with the pool of players that make up the 29 and the different experiences that they bring to the team,” USA coach Dawn Staley told usab.com. “Anytime we can get the USA National Team together and work for a few days, it’s only going to benefit us in the long run.

 

The USA pool team will train from Feb. 9-11 at the Carolina Coliseum.

 

“This is a very talented group, from four-time Olympians Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi, to the younger players who are hoping to compete in their first USA National Team competition,” said Women’s National Team Director Carol Callan.
