Sue Bird set to return on Saturday; UConn's '12-13 rosteris up

Former UConn guard and two-time Olympian Sue Bird is expected to rejoin the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team on Saturday when the team is in Istanbul, Turkey for international friendlies against Croatia and Turkey as well as a couple of practices before heading to London.

Bird left the team during the recent training camp in Washington, D.C. following the death of her stepfather Dennis Burden.

ESPN2 will televise the U.S. Olympic women's basketball game against Great Britain today 2:10 p.m..  Great Britain's top scorer is former Cheshire Academy star Johannah Leedham.

For those interested in such things, UConn has put up the roster and bios for the upcoming season on the www.uconnhuskies.com website.

Moriah Jefferson will wear No. 4, Breanna Stewart No. 30 and Kiah Stokes No. 41.
