Erin Boley (Elizabethtown H.S./Hodgenville, Ky.), who was selected the MVP of the 2015 USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament and has verbally committed to the University of Notre Dame, has been added to the 2015 USA Basketball Women’s 3x3 U18 World Championship Team after a muscle injury forced Asia Durr (St. Pius X Catholic H.S./Douglasville, Ga.) to withdraw.

Boley, whose Southern Starz team finished second in the USA 3x3 U18 National Tournament, will join previously announced USA 3x3 U18 World Championship Team members Kristine Anigwe (Desert Vista H.S./Phoenix, Ariz.), Natalie Chou (Plano West Senior H.S./Plano, Texas) and Arike Ogunbowale (Divine Savior Holy Angels H.S./Milwaukee, Wis.), at the 2015 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship, which will be played June 4-7 in Debrecen, Hungary.

“It was really unexpected, but it was also really exciting,” said Boley about being selected to play for USA Basketball this summer. “I hate it for Asia (Durr) that she isn’t able to play, but I’m excited to be able to represent the USA and be able to play overseas with those girls. I’m really excited. I think we can be really good.

“I started playing 3x3 this spring and I really took a liking to it. I’m really excited to play. I like the style a lot. I played really well when I came out for the (USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament) and I think I’m going to really like playing in the 3x3 tournament in Hungary.”

The USA Women’s 3x3 U18 World Championship Team will train May 29-June 1 at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, prior to departing for Hungary.

Anigwe, Durr, Chou and Ogunbowale’s Defend team captured the 2015 USA Basketball 3x3 U18 National Tournament title to earn the right to represent the U.S. at the FIBA 3x3 U18 Worlds.

Boley as a junior in 2014-15 aided Elizabethtown High School to a 31-3 record and a second-straight appearance at the Kentucky state tournament. The 2015 Naismith High School All-America honorable mention is a three-time district champion and was named the 2014 and 2015 Gatorade Kentucky Girls Basketball Player of the Year and the 2015 Kentucky 5th Region Player of the Year. Boley also participated in the 2013 USA U16 National Team and 2014 USA U17 World Championship Team Trials.
