Australia’s greatest basketball player of all time, Lauren Jackson, has been named to the Opals squad, nine years after retiring from international hoops.

News Corp has revealed that the 41-year-old, a seven-time MVP and seven-time WNBA and WNBL champion as well as a four-time Olympic medalist, will join the national team camp in Canberra next week.

She is not guaranteed a place in the team and is unlikely to play a major role in every game, but she has worked hard to regain her fitness, having returned to NBL1 level for Albury Wodonga , where she averaged 32.6 points and 11.6 rebounds.

But Jackson’s experience would prove vital to an Opals team that won’t feature Liz Cambage after her high-profile split from the national team.

“I didn’t expect it to come to this so every day I spend here is a blessing and I truly feel like one of the luckiest people in the world to have another chance after my career is over. “Jackson told News Corp.

“There is a bit of apprehension. I’m definitely a little scared and excited but who knows what’s going to happen with my body.

“I’ve been very careful from the start of the day, not to get too excited or put pressure on myself. It’s been a really long journey, but every step I’ve taken I’ve been ‘I don’t didn’t think I would get to this point’ but I thought I’ll just push a little further and see how far I can go.

“I feel like a kid again in the running for a job. When I found out I had joined the team, I had a moment of shock, it’s now reality and I’m getting back into the frame of mind to compete to wear green and gold again.

Jackson has been training since November and two weeks ago took part in back-to-back training sessions and a scrum under Opals interim coach Cheryl Chambers in Melbourne.

“With my size, my size and my experience in the game, I think what I can bring to the team is invaluable in terms of leadership,” Jackson said.

“Once I set foot on a basketball court I’m pretty confident, it comes naturally and has always been part of who I am. I know I can bring that confidence to the girls, I can help them and this is where I think it can be useful.

“In terms of talent and the ability to go out and score buckets, people know I can do that, but I think it’s the other things that are going to make the difference.”

Australia host the FIBA ​​Women’s World Cup in Sydney in September and are the highest ranked team in their group.

The United States, in the other group, are three-time defending champions.

Wilson-Fame named to USA Basketball’s 2022 FIBA ​​Pro Tour 3×3 roster

PITTSBURG – Former Pitt standout Jared Wilson-Executive is among six players named to Team USA 2022’s FIBA ​​3×3 Pro Tour roster, as announced by USA Basketball on Monday afternoon. Teams will compete in selected 3×3 events from their respective FIBA ​​Pro Circuits throughout the summer and into the fall.

Wilson-Frame played for the Panthers from 2017-19, collecting 822 points, 271 rebounds and 172 three-pointers in 64 career games. As a senior, he averaged 12.7 points and 5.0 rebounds, while scoring 98 three-point field goals. Wilson-Frame averaged 17.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 32 games for the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League last season. He has also played internationally in Belgium and Mexico.

This is the first time USA Basketball has formed a FIBA ​​3×3 Men’s World Tour team. The team was selected by the USA Basketball 3×3 National Team Men’s Selection Committee.

Wilson-Frame is joined on the team by Isaiah Brown, Austin Butler, Hassani Gravett, Khalil Iverson, Rodney Pryor and Keaton Wallace. All have previous 3×3 experience, but all seven athletes will be making their first appearance on the FIBA ​​3×3 World Tour.

The selected athletes all recently competed in the Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals, where they played with select USA Basketball teams to make their 3×3 debut.

Brown and Wallace competed with Dream Ballerz. Both men have experience in the NBA G League before competing. Brown was most recently a member of the Texas Legends, while Wallace most recently competed with the Agua Caliente Clippers.

Butler and Iverson performed with The Four Friends. Butler played with UNC Charlotte in 2021-22, where he finished second on the team in scoring (12.6 ppg) and first in rebounding (6.0 rpg) in his only season with the 49ers . Iverson, who will also represent the United States at the 2022 Men’s 3×3 World Cup this week in Antwerp, Belgium, has been playing professionally internationally and in the NBA G League since graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 2019.

Gravett, Pryor and Wilson-Frame made their 3×3 debuts at the 3X Nationals with Top Shottas. Gravett has the most NBA experience of the group, having played with the Orlando Magic in 2021-22 after signing two separate 10-day contracts in December. Pryor came to the 3×3 scene after playing in the G League with the Stockton Kings.












USA Basketball FIBA ​​3×3 Pro Circuit Lineup
Last name Previous (Pro/College) Hometown
Isaiah Brown Texas/Northern Iowa Legends Dallas, TX
Austin Butler Charlotte Latrobe, Pennsylvania
Hassani Gravet Lakeland Magic/South Carolina Atlanta, Georgia
Khalil Iverson Lahti/Wisconsin Basketball Delaware, Ohio
Rodney Prior Stockton Kings/Georgetown Evanston, IL
Keaton Wallace Agua Caliente/UTSA Mowers Dallas, TX
Jared Wilson-Executive Salt Lake City/Pittsburgh Stars Hartford, Connecticut

USA Basketball previously announced Fran Fraschilla (men) as coach of the 3×3 pro teams. For more information, visit usab.com.

Different from five-on-five, 3×3 is played on a half-court with a 10-minute game clock and a 12-second shot clock. The game is continuous, the teams “clearing” the ball behind the 2-point line following a basket made, a defensive rebound or a steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-point or 2-point field goals from behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires, the leading team wins.

The full schedule for the FIBA ​​3×3 Men’s World Tour 2022 is here.

The upcoming FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup qualifying window in Melbourne presented a number of homegrown stars with a tough decision to make.

The Boomers’ three-game slate ends July 3, leaving just four days until the start of the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League.

With that in mind, the inclusion of a Summer League-bound Jack White in Brian Goorjian’s squad was a welcome sight, with the versatile Melbourne United striker also committing to play in Las Vegas.

“Honestly, I was a little stressed about the whole thing. I wanted to at least have the opportunity to be involved in the national team stuff this offseason and I got lucky with the national team stuff. NBA, he was locked up a little earlier with the team I was playing with,” White told ESPN.

“I had planned to go to the United States this week and train in preparation, so I’m not jumping out of a plane with jet lag and trying to play. But during the process of sorting everything out, I got a call from Jason Smith who handles logistics with the Boomers, and I was thrilled with the call.

“It’s a difficult time with the last game on July 3 and the Summer League starting on July 7; it will be a bit difficult to sort out, but I’ve had a lot of support from Basketball Australia and the team I’m going to. The NBA team knew that was one of my big goals to play with the national team and they were very supportive once they found out.

It’s no surprise White is keen to maximize his opportunities this offseason, with a ruptured Achilles tendon robbing him of similar chances 12 months earlier. Currently playing for the Geelong Supercats in NBL1, he admits taking his foot off the gas is not in his nature.

“I was encouraged to take a little break. It was pretty consistent with work, doing the rehab for the Achilles and then heading straight into a full NBL season and committing to the Geelong Supercats.

“It was weird, I was encouraged to take time off and I had a week away from the game, I didn’t touch a basketball and it didn’t feel right. I was conditioned, I hates being out of shape and the process of trying to get back into shape.

“It’s been an eventful offseason so far, it doesn’t really feel like an offseason, which is good for me. The more basketball the better.”

Supercats head coach Justin Schueller is an assistant to United, leading a number of relationships between the two clubs, allowing White to balance life and work ahead of the exciting but exhausting period ahead.

“I’m doing really well; I feel like it’s a good connection with what I’m doing in the off-season and United. The body is holding up well, not too much has been added to my routine, I lift every day and just have the ball in my hand. It feels good during this time before it gets crazy to have time for myself and find time to relax and understand that I’ve been going full throttle for about a year. It’s not a bad thing for me to take my foot off the gas and let my body rest.”

Speaking to ESPN last month, Goorjian described the upcoming FIBA ​​Qualifiers as a golden opportunity for homegrown stars to catch the attention of scouts in the United States, although White denies that’s at all. foreground of his lens.

“I guess it’s icing on the cake thinking about all this. For me, in my head, when there’s an opportunity to represent my country, I’m always going to try to make it work. I’m here to represent Australia do it the right way and try to win every game and hopefully it will also be a good way to make sure I head into the Summer League in good shape and playing some really high level basketball.

“I’ve been super lucky with some of the opportunities that have come up, my first senior national team experience, it’s something I’m super excited for and then to be able to go to the United States and have a shot at Summer League. and trying to get my foot in the door is something I dreamed of when I was young.”

When you consider he was learning to gain body confidence this time last year, it’s no wonder White is looking to grab every opportunity with both hands.

The Boomers’ qualifying window begins Thursday, June 30 against China from Melbourne’s John Cain Arena, with the action live on ESPN.

There are a lot of news every day. Illini Inquirer will try to ease digestion each morning of the week with the Daily Digest.



*****



Illinois coach Brad Underwood has long called incoming rookie Ty Rodgers a “winner.” The Michigan native will arrive in Champaign this summer with proof of that: a gold medal.

Rodgers, the No. 49 prospect for the Class of 2022, served as a starter on the USA U18 basketball team that beat Brazil 102-60 to win the FIBA ​​Championship gold medal game U18 of the Americas at Auditorio Zonkey in Tijuana, Mexico on Sunday night. The United States has now won 10 of 12 Americas Championships since the biannual tournament began in 1990.

Rodgers had six points, three rebounds and two assists on Sunday. In six tournament games, Rodgers averaged 5.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 0.8 steals and was one of Team USA’s go-to defensemen.


Why is this important: Rodgers wasn’t a go-to offensive option for Team USA – five-star prospects Cam Whitmore (Villanova) and Items (Oregon) led Team USA in points, including 30 points and 21 points respectively on Sunday – but showed during the tournament that he can play an impactful role on a talented team as a distributor, rebounder and defenseman potentially dominant. He started with higher-ranked prospects and could push Illinois veterans to save playing time given his impact on the game in so many ways.


Rodgers said before his tryout for Team USA: “I just want to keep showing my overall game. Just keep showing that versatility and keep showing that I’m a closeted defender. I feel like it’s going to get me into the team. I feel like there aren’t too many players like me doing the things I do, doing them all. It makes me unique. I’m ready to go out there and show everything: show my ball handling ability, show my passing, my defensive skills, my shooting, how it’s improved and things like that. I can not wait.


And after: Rodgers will now travel to Champaign to join his freshman teammates, who arrived in Illinois a few weeks ago to begin summer training. Rodgers and guards skyy clark, Jayden Epps and Sencire Harris make up the No. 9 preparatory recruiting class in the country.

Illinois Basketball Transfer Jacob Grandison clerk at duke following an official visit to Durham over the weekend. The 6-foot-6 transfer forward – who averaged 9.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 41.0% from three for Illinois last season – picked Duke rather than the interest of Michigan, Kentucky, UCLA, USC and many others.


Why is this important: Grandison was one of the best transfers left on the market, and the 24-year-old gives Duke freshman head coach Jon Scheyer a mature role player and much-needed experience for a Blue Devils team that lost its top five Final Four scorers in the NBA draft and brought in four five-star freshmen, including three of the top four prospects from the class of 2022.


Grandison told Dushawn London of 247Sports: “The visit went very well. Throughout the process, I waited for that gut feeling and kept everything open. I didn’t know until I did and after the tour I was talking with all the staff to get an idea. I think it was the right decision for me.

“Coach Scheyer and I had our private conversations, but the message was to just play basketball. You can’t manipulate or force anything. Basketball is a natural phenomenon. It’s all about flow, chemistry and culture. It’s all about there, it’s set up to win and I’m ready to do it with them.

“I come as a veteran. I have some experience and after the visit Duke is Duke but there really is no ego among the staff. It allows there to be that flow on and off the pitch. We really feel this family atmosphere and this strong fraternity.


What this means: Illini are at the point of their program that losing a key starter isn’t a big deal as Illinois reloaded on the wing adding top 20 transfers Matthew Mayer and Terrence Shannon and has two sophomores, RJ Melendez and Luke Goodewhich emerge in addition to a freshman wing among the top 50 Ty Rodgers.


And after: Is the northwest transfer forward Pete Nance will soon announce a decision? I was pretty calm there. Illinois looks unlikely for Nance at this point, but the Illini are looking to add more depth upfield front behind Coleman Hawkins and Baylor transfers Matthew Mayer and Dain Dainja.

– Illinois was not on the list, but 247Sports breaks down the most underrated environments in college football. And we agree with the representative of the Big Ten.

Isaac Trotter broke down the 10 teams with the fewest return points for the 2022-23 season, and Illinois tops the list.

Wisconsin football received a commitment from a three-star rusher. Meanwhile, Rutgers received three commitments over the weekend: a linebacker, an offensive lineman and a receiver/defensive back, and Maryland landed an offensive lineman in the state.

Good week start !

Coached by Caelum Harris, Gilas Youth start their FIBA ​​U16 Asia Championship in Qatar against Kuwait before facing off with Japan to cap the group stage

MANILA, Philippines — Gilas Youth is aiming for a third FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup appearance in four years.

But that’s easier said than done as the Philippines face tough competition when they kick off their campaign in the FIBA ​​U16 Asian Championship in Doha, Qatar against Kuwait on Monday, June 13. .

Led by Caelum Harris, Gilas Youth will also face Japan in the group stage of the tournament which serves as the qualifier for the FIBA ​​U17 Basketball World Cup in Malaga, Spain in July.

“I hope everyone surprises everyone,” Philippines head coach Josh Reyes said as the national team held overseas and local trials to determine the 15 players who will fly to Qatar.

Along with Harris, Lebron Nieto, Jacob Bayla, Jared Bahay, Jayden Jones, Kristian Porter, Zain Mahmood, Alex Konov, Renzo Competente, Mikhail Romero, Apl Mcandrei Gemao and Sebastian Reyes make up the 12-man roster.

Veejay Pre, Joseph Pangilinan and Elijah Yusi are the reserves.

“Until we get there and play in the actual games, I think it’s not going to be accurate to say who’s going to surprise,” Reyes said.

“We never know who can come out big. But no matter who can put up great statistics. It has to be teamwork for us.

The top team from each of the four groups will qualify directly for the quarter-finals, while the next two top teams will fight for their tournament life in the playoffs.

Only the top four finishers in the 13-team competition will book their tickets to Spain.

For Reyes, reaching the World Cup has been made much more difficult now that the national youth team no longer has NBA aspirant Kai Sotto in its fold.

Sotto, who recently turned 20, helped the Philippines qualify for the FIBA ​​U17 Basketball World Cup 2018 in Argentina and the FIBA ​​U19 Basketball World Cup 2019 in Greece.

“We’re not the same youth team that qualified for two World Cups in the past, where we had an obvious focal point in Kai Sotto,” Reyes said.

“This time we will try to win and we have to win games as a collective unit.” – Rappler.com

Wisconsin Badgers Men’s Basketball: Khalil Iverson to represent USA at FIBA ​​3×3 Basketball World Cup https://eight-fut.com/wisconsin-badgers-mens-basketball-khalil-iverson-to-represent-usa-at-fiba-3x3-basketball-world-cup/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 20:32:57 +0000 https://eight-fut.com/wisconsin-badgers-mens-basketball-khalil-iverson-to-represent-usa-at-fiba-3x3-basketball-world-cup/ Former Wisconsin Badgers small forward Khalil Iverson of Delaware, Ohio will represent the United States of America at the FIBA ​​3×3 World Cup 2022 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Former Wisconsin Badgers small forward Khalil Iverson of Delaware, Ohio will represent the United States of America at the FIBA ​​3×3 World Cup 2022 in Antwerp, Belgium. The tournament runs from June 21 to June 26. The USA men’s 3×3 World Cup team begins on June 21 with clashes against Austria and Slovenia.

According to a press release, Iverson competed in the recent Red Bull USA Basketball 3X Nationals for The Four Friends (awwww, that’s a cute team name). He will be making his USA Basketball 3×3 debut as he has been playing professionally internationally and in the NBA G League since graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 2019.

Kidani Brutus (Bronxville, NY), Dominique Jones (New York) and James Parrott (Omaha, Neb.) are the other three players on the men’s team. As members of Team Harlem, Brutus and Jones won the 2022 Red Bull USA Basketball 3X National Championship last month.

The Americans are the defending gold medalists heading into the 2022 tournament, the event’s seventh edition.

Different from five-on-five, 3×3 is played on a half-court with a 10-minute game clock and a 12-second shot clock. The game is continuous, the teams “clearing” the ball behind the 2-point line following a basket made, a defensive rebound or a steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-point or 2-point field goals from behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires, the leading team wins.
