Four former UConn stars at U.S. training camp

Former UConn stars Swin Cash, Tina Charles, Asjha Jones and Renee Montgomery are among the players who will be taking part in the U.S. senior national team training camp being run by UConn and U.S. coach Geno Auriemma.

Joining them for the start of the camp are Baylor rising junior Brittney Griner and former Rutgers star Cappie Pondexter, who had not taken part in the last couple of training camps. Also, San Antonio Silver Stars forward Sophia Young, who became an American citizen earlier this month, and her San Antonio teammate Danielle Robinson are planning to be at the camp. Former UConn star Diana Taurasi and her Phoenix Mercury teammate Candice Dupree are planning to join up with the squad later. Former UConn star Sue Bird is injured and will not be able to take part in the camp.

The training camp starts tomorrow and the U.S. will play five games during its tour of Europe beginning with two games on Friday and Saturday as part of a tournament hosted by Pallacanestro Napoli.
