    At least they spelled Gray correctly. I guess Jasmine Thomas and Elizabeth Williams can go seek foreign citizenship somewhere

    Why does USAB hate Gabby Williams? Discuss

    There are some names on there that are a little baffling to me. Layshia Clarendon? Sydney Wiese?

    On the other hand, no Allisha Gray?

    My initial response/thought would have gotten me banned... So I'll go with my third thought and say that I'll forward the information to them :rolleyes:

    Good to see all the great guards on there - I know there was lots of debate regarding the future guards for team USA since Augustus, Bird, Taurasi and Whalen are all getting long in the tooth. So proud of all the current and former UCONN players. What a tremendous list of the best players in the world!

    For all the hysteria surrounding Parker being left off the 2016 Olympic team, she's not even invited among the 30 best of the best for team USA tryouts? Guess it WASN'T about Geno - wonder who they blame this time... :rolleyes:

    The names on this list are interesting, as are those omitted. Since this is merely a training camp, and not a pool for an Olympic Team, I'm not too concerned. How many of these players will be invited to the next national team selection camp?

    IF these 30 players were vying for the 12 roster spots, some of them would not stand a snow ball's chance in he** of making this team. It will be a good experience for the younger players for the next selection team camp.

    It would not be difficult to pare this list down to 12 right now, and still leave some experienced veterans that deserve to make it off the team.

    While I'm happy to see her on the list, didn'tTiff H. Play for another country and as such in eligible? And where is MoJeff?

    Well it would seem to me that unless you have a real injury, "other commitments and rest requirements" is pretty unacceptable.

    "If the top two seeds, Minnesota and Los Angeles, advance to the Finals, as they did last year, that will mean nine listed players won't be able to participate. Right now, there is no plan to add any others to this camp, but USA Basketball may consider it".

    I could see players being unable to make it because they are in the finals, but to announce now speaks volumes about their commitment to USA Basketball.

    Sydney Wiese over Allisha Gray is a joke. I guess being the ROY doesn't count for anything nowadays.

    I don't think Layshia Clarendon is that baffling. She's the second leading assist leader in the WNBA this past season. She's really elevated her game. I think they are just looking at some of the younger guards all around for the future. Wiese on the other hand is a bit surprising.

    I don't follow the wnba but has Tuck even played a full season in the league since she left Uconn?

    Moriah Jefferson - will continue to rehab her knee injury this winter. It was reported here in the yard on August 24, that she will NOT play overseas this winter, but will remain in the states and continue her rehab treatments and conditioning. It would not surprise me to see her turn up in Storrs for treatment and rehab like Tuck did last year.

    The announcement of her resigning is here: EUROBASKET NEWS

    The news of her release here: Moriah will apparently not play for six months. Galatasaray cancelled her contract because of her injury. [LINK]

    Maybe she does need surgery and thus won't go overseas this season.

    Fair enough, I've watched less WNBA this season. I really have never thought of her as a good WNBA player let alone a USAB candidate.

    Looking at her stats, I do see that her assist totals have spiked this season. Interestingly, her PER has actually gone down, likely due to her shooting percentage dropping substantially.

    What's Tiffany Hayes doing on this list? Doesn't she play for one of those eastern European countries that I can't spell?

    This is an interesting list but I think people need to realize this is NOT and Olympic team 'trial'. It is a training camp scheduled 18 months before the next NT competition and a chance for a lot of players get their feet wet within the USA system, and a chance for everyone to get acquainted with the new coaching staff.
