Pair of Huskies preparing for the World University Games

The U-16 squad just completed a run to the FIBA Americas U16 Championship for Woimen and now it is time for the college players to move to the forefront.

The 12-member U.S. squad competing in the World University Games  is converging on Colorado Springs, Colo. for final preparations before the team leaves for Russia.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Bria Hartley, fresh off leading UConn to its eighth national title, are among the headliners on the U.S. squad.

The team's first practice will be tomorrow and after six days of practices at the U.S. Olympic Training Center the team will depart for Kazan, Russia on July 1. The first game for the U.S. in on July 8 against Belarus. The game is set to tip at 8:30 p.m. in Kazan which if my math is right puts it at 4:30 a.m. on July 9 here on the East Coast.
