They also played together on the 2021 FIBA 3x3 Women’s Series Klaipeida Stop in July in Lithuania, where the USA went 5-0 and won the tournament.

Burdick won gold medals as a member of the USA team at the 2009 FIBA Americas U16 Championship, 2010 FIBA U17 World Cup and 2011 FIBA U19 World Cup, and a tournament title at the 2014 USA Basketball 3x3 National Championship.

In 2017, she helped the USA to a 3-0 record and a tournament title at the U24 Four Nations Tournament in Tokyo.
