UConn's Dangerfield, host of future Huskies heading to U19 trials

UConn guard Crystal Dangerfield and three of her future teammates are among those set to take part in the U.S. U-19 national team tryouts later this month.

UConn incoming freshmen Mikayla Coombs and Megan Walker and Class of 2018 commit Charli Collier are also among the 33 players heading to Colorado Springs for the tryouts which run from May 18-21.

Christyn Williams, one of UConn's Class of 2018 recruiting targets, is also heading to the trials as a committee chaired by former UConn star Jen Rizzotti will select the team to play in the FIBA U19 World Cup in Italy.

Dangerfield played on the U.S. team which won the U19 world title in 2015. She was second on the team in both assists (19) and steals (14) and also averaged 6.4 points per game. Napheesa Collier and Azura' Stevens were also on that team. Another interesting note is that of the 12 players on the team, five have either transferred or are intending to do so.

Walker is one of seven players who was on the U18 squad which won the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 title. She averaged 9.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
