Well, this is unique…

Bria Hartley has been selected to the 2012 USA Basketball World Championship 3×3 tea. Hartley will be joined by Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame), Chiney Ogwumike (Stanford) and Alyssa Thomas (Maryland) to represent the USA in Greece next month at the inaugural FIBA 3×3 World Championship.

“The selected women’s team also went undefeated throughout the 2012 USA Basketball 3×3 National Team Tournament and brought to the tournament the level of intensity they are used to playing at, while also coming together as a team,” said USA Basketball 3×3 Program Director Travis Johnson. “The competitive edge they showed at the tournament is the starting point of how we expect them to perform at the FIBA 3×3 World Championship.”

Hartley, who will be a junior this season, was a WBCA/State Farm All-Americam squad and Big East first team selection last season, averaging 14 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists.

The members of the 2012 USA Basketball 3×3 National Team will represent the U.S. at the inaugural FIBA 3×3 World Championship played August 23 – 26 in Athens, Greece

Prior to departing for Athens, the team will reconvene at the USOTC for a training camp from August 17 – 20.

    Three times Three?? Three ON Three?? Seems like an intense way of playing international BB. But if anyone can play with intensity it’s these 4 women. They are all fantastic.

    What does that have to do with the blog? If you don’t like what JA has to say, you can always skip it. Quit whining and don’t read. Simple.
