Five former UConn stars to take part in U.S. training camp

Former Huskies Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Tina Charles, Maya Moore and Diana Taurasi are among 11 U.S. Olympic team members slated to take part in a national team training camp next month in Seattle.

The May 11-13 training camp will be highlighted by a May 12 exhibition game against China.

Seimone Augustus, Tamika Catchings, Sylvia Fowles, Angel McCoughtry, Candace Parker and Lindsay Whalen will also take part in the first training camp since the announcement of 11 of the 12 members of the U.S. Olympic team.

"I'm looking forward to it because it'll be the first time that the entire team will be together," said UConn and U.S. national team coach Geno Auriemma. "It's been kind of difficult with everybody's schedules to have many training camps. So, I'm really looking forward to it from that standpoint."

Tickets for the U.S./China game will go on sale on Apr. 17 at www.stormbasketball.com or www.ticketmaster.com.

It remains to be seen if the U.S. will name the 12th member of the team and/or the alternates before the start of the training camp.
