Wilson, Plum, USA Basketball to Take Part in Series of Games this November vs. Four Nationally-Ranked NCAA Teams
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - USA Basketball announced today that Las Vegas' A'ja Wilson and Kelsey Plum will take part in a series of games with the Women's National Team this November against nationally-ranked NCAA Teams.
Opening November 2 at Stanford, the USA will play Oregon State, November 4, Texas A&M, November 7, and Oregon, November 9. Ticket information for each game can be found at USAB.com/tickets.
Additionally, early in 2020 the U.S. will compete in a second series of NCAA games, which will be announced at a later date.
Because of the cooperation by the NCAA and its member schools, the USA National Team has been afforded the opportunity to compete in these two series of exhibition games against some of the nation's premier NCAA Division I programs.
As part of its expanded women's national team program, USA Basketball has secured commitments from eight elite athletes from the 2019-20 USA National Team pool to participate in the team's five training segments that will take place between November 2019 and April 2020. In addition to Wilson, those eight include Sue Bird (Seattle Storm), Elena Delle Donne (Washington Mystics), Skylar Diggins-Smith (Dallas Wings), Sylvia Fowles (Minnesota Lynx), Chelsea Gray (Los Angeles Sparks), Nneka Ogwumike (Los Angeles Sparks), and Diana Taurasi (Phoenix Mercury).
The roster for the November college tour will be rounded out by USA National Team members Plum, Seimone Augustus (Minnesota Lynx), Layshia Clarendon (Connecticut Sun), and Napheesa Collier (Minnesota Lynx).
Gray will miss the game at Stanford, and Plum will miss the first two games due to previous personal commitments.
