Stewart Participating at US Women’s Hoop Training Camp
UConn senior Breanna Stewart is taking a break from her season to participate in a three-day training camp for the U.S. women's national basketball team.
Stewart, who has guided the No. 1 Huskies to an undefeated season, is the only college athlete among the 16 players competing at the camp. She helped the U.S. win gold at the 2014 World Championship.
Joining Stewart at the training sessions from Feb. 21-23 on UConn's campus are former Huskies Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Maya Moore. Three-time Olympian Tamika Catchings returns to USA Basketball after helping the team win its fifth straight gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
Former Olympians Lindsay Whalen, Seimone Augustus and Angel McCoughtry will attend camp, along with WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne and Brittney Griner.
