UConn's Dolson among latest U.S. cuts

Former UConn star Stefanie Dolson was among three players let go as USA Basketball cut its roster from 16 to 13 players.

Former Notre Dame stars Skylar Diggins and Kayla McBride were also let go. The U.S. needs to cut one more player before the start of the FIBA World Championship for Women and the decision will be determined by the availability of Brittney Griner, who has yet to be fully cleared after suffered an eye injury in the WNBA championship series.

These cuts likely means that UConn junior Breanna Stewart has made the team along with former UConn stars Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Maya Moore and Diana Taurasi.

“This was a very difficult decision,” said USA Basketball Women's National Team Director Carol Callan in a statement. “Given the quality and depth of our USA National Team pool, the final decisions will always be tough. But, our future is bright knowing that these players have a hunger and desire to continue to get better and be a part of our pool. We look forward to seeing them at future camps. We certainly appreciate all that they have given and will continue to give to USA Basketball.”
