Jones Invited to AmeriCup Team Trials
STANFORD, Calif. - Fresh off a spectacular sophomore season, Haley Jones has been selected to participate in team trials for USA Basketball Women's AmeriCup. She, along with 19 other top collegiate players, will compete for a spot from April 18-21, 2021 on the campus of the University of South Carolina.
Invitations to the trials were issued by the USA Basketball Women's Junior National Team Committee and USA Women's Senior National Team Committee.
Jones has previously won a gold medal with USA Basketball, taking first place at the 2018 FIBA U17 World Cup in Belarus.
Ten nations from North, South and Central America and the Caribbean will take part in the 2021 AmeriCup, held June 11-19 in Puerto Rico. The top four finishing teams will advance to compete in one of four 2022 FIBA World Cup Qualifying Tournaments in hopes of earning one of the 12 spots in the 2022 FIBA World Cup field. Australia, host of the 2022 World Cup, and the 2020 Olympic champion, earn automatic berths to the World Cup, but will be required to participate in the qualifying process.
