The Big 12 will be represented by one current and three former women’s basketball players at the 2013 USA Women’s National Team mini-camp October 4-6 in Las Vegas.
Current Baylor senior Odyssey Sims, former BU standouts Brittney Griner and Sophia Young along with former Oklahoma guard Danielle Robinson will attend the camp at the Cox Pavilion practice gym on the campus of UNLV.
The camp will be used to identify players for the USA National Team pool, from which the 2013 USA World Championship Team will be selected. Invitations were issued by the USA Basketball Women’s National Team Player Selection Committee.
Sims, the starting point guard for the Lady Bears, was a unanimous All-America selection last season. Griner, Young and Robinson are all current WNBA players. Griner was the first pick in last year’s WNBA draft by the Phoenix Mercury. Young and Robinson are now teammates on the San Antonio Silver Stars.
