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.
