USA Basketball announced rosters for the training camps for the Women’s 3×3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament Teams. Eleven athletes are set to participate in training Feb. 12-13 in Chicago. The USA Basketball 3×3 player selection committees will select four women to represent USA Basketball at the 2020 FIBA 3×3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament March 18-22 in Bengaluru, India.

The top three teams from that tournament will earn a place in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games 3×3 basketball competition.  Per FIBA rules, “all teams taking part in the FIBA 3×3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament must include at least two athletes who are ranked among the federation’s top 10 FIBA 3×3 athletes” according to USA Basketball.
