  • Date:
    May 19, 2022

USA Basketball today announced 40 athletes expected to participate at the 2022 USA Basketball WU17 National Team trials at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Trials will start May 26 with the 12-member team expected to be announced June 1. The team will reconvene in Colorado Springs June 25-30 before competing at the 2022 FIBA Women’s U17 World Cup July 9-17 in Debrecen, Hungary.

 

Trials participants and coaches were selected by the USA Basketball Women’s Development National Team Committee. Athletes will represent the graduating classes of 2023, 2024 and 2025.

 

From the class of 2023 are Sunaja Agara, Kamorea Arnold, Madison Booker, Zoe Brooks, Mallory Collier, Breya Cunningham, Jadyn Donovan, Milaysia Fulwiley, Mary Ashley Groot, Hannah Hidalgo, Reagan Jackson, Kymora Johnson, Riley Nelson, Delaney Thomas, Judea Watkins, Jada Williams and Mikaylah Williams.

 

Representing the class of 2024 are Mikayla Blakes, Jaloni Cambridge, Morgan Cheli, Kendall Dudley, Joyce Edwards, Leah Harmon, Ella Hobbs, Jordan Lee, Olivia Olson, Taliyah Parker, Mackenly Randolph, Tajianna Roberts, Kennedy Smith, Blanca Thomas, Kennedy Umeh and Allie Ziebell.

 

The class of 2025 features Sienna Betts, Aaliyah Crump, Adelaide Jernigan, Marcayla Johnson, Leah Macy, Brooklyn Shamblin and Aubrey Shaw.

 

Arnold, Booker, Cambridge, Cunningham, Donovan, Dudley, Olson, Delaney Thomas, Watkins and Jada Williams were members of the 2021 USA Women’s U16 National Team that defeated Canada 118-45 for the gold medal at the 2021 FIBA Women’s U16 Americas Championship. Brooks, Fulwiley, Hobbs and Umeh were finalists for the 2021 U16 roster, while Edwards, Groot, Parker and Shaw were at trials.

  

Additionally, USA Basketball announced that Carlesa Dixon and Bobbi Morgan will serve as court coaches for the trials. Both will undertake their first USA Basketball coaching assignment and assist with on-court drills and skills sessions. Previously, USA Basketball announced that the team will be led by Sue Phillips.  

 

Dixon, the head coach at Summer Creek High School in Houston, has led three programs to regional appearances, coached three teams to the Texas state championship game and earned a district championship on six occasions. A four-time District Coach of the Year, Dixon was named the 2022 Houston Chronicle Coach of the Year and was selected to coach in the 2022 Texas Girls Coaches Association All-Star Game.

 

Morgan completed her first season as the head coach at Ursinus College (Collegeville, Pa.) after previously spending 13 seasons at Haverford College (Haverford, Pa.). At Haverford, where she is the winningest coach in program history, Morgan advanced to the NCAA regional finals twice (2019, 2020) in four tournament appearances (2014, 2018, 2019, 2020) as well as making nine-straight conference playoffs. 

 

The USA has won the FIBA U17 Women’s World Cup four of the five times the event has been held, including the most recent occurrence in 2018.
