Schedule for the Americup. Just over a week away.
It does not look like it. I looked up the roster, and it lists the "finalists". 13 players, but no one from UCONN. Does the team have 13 players, or 12? Does 1 need to be cut still? I'm guessing the UCONN players who were eligible opted to do other things this summer...Not one Huskies made the team?
Speaking of which, NaLyssa Smith could not make it to the last camp so they named the other 12 as the final roster:To the degree you east coasters are interested, it's striking that Haley Jones is the only player named to the team who hails from the Pacific or Mountain times zones (and Sedona Prince is the only other player from west of the Mississippi River). Not saying there's east coast media bias, but that does tell you something about the recruiting challenges out west.
Christyn if she had been invited or decided to attend would have probably made the team. I don't think Olivia has enough offense to make the team.
All the Canadian Press releases listed her at guard again today. In any case, Canada runs a different offence. Her role will be revealed in the AmeriCup.Rosters posted by FIBA.
Canada (Aaliyah listed as a Forward):
USA's roster at the FIBA site lists all invitees not the final 12 which is here:
