U.S. training camp dates announced

USA Basketball announced that it will hold a training camp from Oct. 4-6 at the Cox Pavilion practice gym at UNLV.

It is the first training camp since UConn's Geno Auriemma was named the U.S. national team coach through the 2016 Olympics.

"I’m really looking forward to kicking off the next four years with this training camp in Las Vegas,” Auriemma said in the USA Basketball press release. “It’s going to give me a great opportunity to see some of the younger guys and how they fit into my system, as well as working with our veterans again. It’s been just over a year, but I can’t wait to start the process of trying to figure out how we can mesh all of our talent together and get ready for next year’s World Championship.”

Players attending the camp will be announced at a later date. Players from at least eight of the 12 WNBA teams will be eligible to take part in the camp as Connecticut, San Antonio, Tulsa and New York missed the playoffs, Seattle and Chicago were eliminated from the postseason yesterday while the losers of tonight's Washington/Atlanta and Phoenix/Los Angeles games will be knocked out of the playoffs as well. Players from teams which lose in the conference finals could also take part in the camp. There's a chance that active college players could be invited to the camp as well.
