Moore, Durr named to USA Women's U-19 team -- Monday Cardinal Couple
TWO CARDS HEADED TO RUSSIA FOR USA
Incoming freshman Asia Durr and returning sophomore Mariya Moore are two of the twelve that have been selected to represent USA Basketball in the U-19 women's World Championships this July in Chekhov, Russia.
Duke star and Owensboro's Rebecca Greenwell has been named to 2015 USA World University Games Team.
The selections for U-19...announced on Sunday...also include three UConn signees...Napheesa Collier, Crystal Dangerfield and Katie Lou Samuelson. The squad will have two other ACC performers in Shakayla Thomas (FSU) and Azure Stevens (Duke). Others on the roster include:
A'ja Wilson - South Carolina
Kristine Angiwe - California
Chatrice White - Illinois
Gabby Ortiz - Oklahoma
Lauren Cox - uncommitted
Cox has visited Louisville and is one of the most sought after players in the class of 2016.
Having Walz coaching her for the summer is a great advantage, one would think, is possibly getting the talented 6'6" post to don the red and black.
Giving Walz some extra time before the 2015-16 season starts with Moore and Durr is also a reason to celebrate. Seeing how the girls perform against the best in the world will no doubt be helpful when the Cards face Duke, UNC and other talented ACC squads later this college hoops year.
Durr, a veteran of three previous USA teams, is also representing the USA in the FIBA 3x3 U-18 World Championships in Debrecen, Hungary from June 4-7.
WKU head coach Michelle Clark Heard will also have a busy summer...named as an assistant to the 2015 USA Pan-American Games team.
