Angel McCoughtry has accepted an invitation to attend the 2009 USA Basketball Women's National Team fall training camp.
The camp meets from September 30th to October 5th at American University in Washington, DC. A 12-member team will be assembled at some point in the future.
Currently attending the camp:
Tina Charles *
Maya Moore *
* - college player
Some players have already been named to the National Team, namely Sue Bird, Tamika Catchings, Diana Taurasi, Seimone Augustus, Sylvia Fowles, Kara Lawson, Candace Parker and Cappie Pondexter.
I believe that this roster will be cut down to 14 point in time for the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women. The 2006 team, composed of WNBA stars and Candace Parker (at the time with the University of Tennessee), finished third at FIBA.
UPDATE: According to Chicago Sky Hoops, "After that, selected players will travel to Ekaterinburg, Russia, where the USA will compete in the 2009 UMMC Ekaterinburg International Invitational from October 9th-11th."
