I hate to break it to you, but you'll have to go one more regular-column day without Jared. He'll be back to regale you with tales from his latest escapades on Thursday, but you're stuck with me again today.
Sydney Taylor Earns USA 3x3 Nations League Call-Up
Taylor earned her spot on the team after hitting the game winner over Canada on Sunday evening. Her three gave her 53 points over the four game tournament. The effort saw her named MVP. Taylor twice led the team in scoring and proved herself to Cardinal fans as the prolific scorer those who had watched her before already recognized her to be.
Van Lith has become a bit of a golden girl for the USA, as she participated in the FIBA 3x3 World Cup in the first week of June, where she won gold, and has also been named to the USA U24 Women's Series Team. That gold medal in June resulted in her being on the header of the league's YouTube channel (which you can find here), where FIBA 3x3 games will be available to stream. We'll make sure to keep this link available as the event comes closer.
Until next time, Go Cards!
