Some folks talk early. No panic here. Actually enjoying the underdog role. I remember when Notre Dame 'ended' the UConn dynasty. Scar had a great team last year and deserved a championship. But the odds are that SCAR becomes the next Notre Dame and not the next UConn. In reality you need to worry more about the Lady Vols than UConn. You may never even win the SEC let alone a Natty. And again you demonstrate how UConn lives in your head.
Finally a perfect national selection without fully Uconns. But, I think that Ogunbowale, Diamond & Boston should make that team. Thomas will not play international game with her dirty play. I would take Boston over Austin..And wat happened to rockie of the yr

My understanding is that most of these players (outside of those playing late playoff games) have been at a training camp together for the last couple of weeks, so the selection of most was based on play there and not their WNBA seasons.
To be honest id take Howard over Copper as well , but i think Copper's speed and defensive prowess is what got her picked ahead. Jones most definitely needs to be on the team as a bruiser. Having dolson would not be safe at all so that was a great decision. Laney has been competing for a spot on team usa worlds for what seems like a decade. Im sure she was the last pick and sentimental one , i fully expect howard at the olympics over Laney unless she plays out of her mind in the WC. She did not show me much in the red and white game other than being an emergency PG with toughness. Something Jewel Lloyd can do as well if they were to lose gray , Ionescu . Hell AT may be the best emergency PG option on the team .
