Capital Prep's Gillespie makes third cut at U-17 trials

The process of picking a 12-member roster to compete in the FIBA U-17 World Championships continued as USA Basketball cut the roster from 70 to 46 players.

It was a case of mixed results for the two Connecticut players who survived the first two rounds of cuts. Capital Prep's Kiah Gillespie made the cut and is taking part in this morning's session but Avon's Abby Laszewski did not make it to the final 46 players.

As expected, the roster of 46 features both UConn commits at the U-17 trials (De'Janae Boykin and Katie Lou Samuelson). Erin Boley, Lauren Cox, Crystal Dangerfield, Asia Durr, Sabrina Ionescu, Tori McCoy and Arike Ogunbowale are among the UConn recruiting targets who made the cut.

This is expected to be the final cut until the list of 12 players heading to the Czech Republic in July for the World Championships is announced tomorrow morning. The U-18 team playing in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in August in Colorado Springs will be announced tomorrow night (most likely when I am on the plane going home so it may be a while before I post about it).
