"USA Basketball is grateful to all of the athlete who attended training camp and competed for a roster spot," said USA Basketball Youth and Sport Development director and selection committee member Jay Demings. "It was a very talented field for both the men and women and the committee had a very difficult task in selecting these teams. We are confident in the abilities of the eight players and the strength of the teams overall. Now, it is on to the very important task of qualifying the USA for the 3×3 Olympic competition in Tokyo."
The USA men's team consists of Canyon Barry (Iowa Wolves), Robbie Hummel (Purdue/Valparaiso), Dominique Jones (Fort Hays State) and Kareem Maddox (Princeton). The USA men earned their bid to the Olympic Qualifying Tournament by taking home gold in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
The USA Basketball 3×3 Selection Committee held training camp earlier this month in Chicago with 27 men's and women's athletes aiming for roster spots. Other WNBA players vying for spots included Natasha Cloud (Washington Mystics) and Jackie Young (Las Vegas Aces).
