Viewing: Dawn Staley

Dawn Staley, head coach of the USA Basketball 2015 Women's U19 World Championship Team, reacts following the announcement of the team roster.

It’s not everyday that young, aspiring athletes are able to benefit from the knowledge of an Olympian, let alone four of them. However, during this weekend’s trials, four Olympians were among the coaching staffs and committee.

After five trials sessions, the USA U19 athletes are playing the waiting game; Asia Durr makes a big sacrifice; the competition gets tougher for Lauren Cox; and Destiny Slocum takes advantage of her opportunity.

Check out highlights from the first day of the 2015 Women's U19 Championship Team Trials at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“My expectation for the weekend is definitely some tough competition,” stated Louisville’s Mariya Moore. “Every day is going to be a battle.” Moore was not kidding when she made that statement.
