U-17 invitees

USA Basketball has released the names of the 36 players who have accepted invitations to try out for the U.S. Under-17 national team.

UConn commit Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis is predictably on the list as are UConn recruiting targets Elizabeth Williams, Kiah Stokes, Breanna Stewart and Betnijah Laney, who were all members of the inaugural U.S. Under-16 national team in 2009.

Not on the list are guard Brianna Banks, who along with Mosqueda-Lewis, is the only high school junior to orally commit to UConn and Hillhouse sophomore Bria Holmes.

The team trials will take place from June 8-11 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
with the 2010 USA Women’s U17 World Championship and Youth Olympic Games teams will be announced on June 11. The players will remain in Colorado Springs for training through June 15.

The U17 World Championship team will reassemble in Washington, D.C., for training July 5-7 before heading overseas for exhibition games in Spain and then the world championships in France. The USA Women’s Youth Olympic Games Team will reassemble on Aug. 5 and train through Aug. 10 before departing for Singapore.

Look for the invitees to the U-18 national team camp to be announced shortly.
