Tennessee Duo and Lady Vols Coach to Represent SEC on USA World University Team

By Mike Siroky

The Southeastern Conference of women’s basketball will be represented by two Lady Vols on USA Basketball’s World Univesity Games roster:

Diamond DeShields (guard, 6-1, 155) and Mercedes Russell (C, 6-6, 170) join assistant coach – and their college coach – Holly Warlick in the competition.

Tennessee was the only school on the USA World roster with two players while the Pac-12 had four players: UCLA's 5-6, 132 lb, guard Jordin Canada; Stanford's 6-3, 170 lb forward Erica McCall; California's 6-3, 170 pound forward Courtney Range, and Oregon State 6-0, 150 pound guard Sydney Weise.

Others who made the cut: Nina Davis (forward, 5-11, 160) Baylor; Rebecca Greenwell (guard, 6-1, 165 ) Duke; Chanise Jenkins (guard, 5-5,145) DePaul; Brionna Jones (center, 6-3, 220) Maryland; Aerial Powers (forward, 6-0, 160) Michigan State; and Courtney M. Williams (guard, 5-8, 136) South Florida.

The USA players and coaches will return to Colorado Springs for training camp on June 18-July 2. The 2015 World University Games women’s basketball competition will be held July 4-13 in Gwangju, South Korea.

The USA women have drawn Group C and will play Italy at 10 a.m. (all times listed are local, Gwangju is +13 hours from EDT) on July 5, China at 5:30 p.m. on July 6 and Czech Republic at 8 p.m. on July 7.

Playing in Group A will be Canada, Hungary, Mozambique and South Korea; Group B includes Japan, Mexico, Russia and Sweden; and Group D features Australia, Brazil, Taipei and Uganda.

The quarterfinals are July 9, the semifinals are July 11, the Bronze medal game is July 12 and the Gold medal game is July 13.

Contested every other year, the World University Games is organized by the International University Sports Federation (FISU).

USA Basketball women’s teams have participated in 17 World University Games and collected a record nine Golds, six Silvers and one Bronze medal. Since 1973, the first year the USA women competed in the World University Games, USA women’s teams have compiled a 101-15 record. The USA has won Gold medals in the past five Worlds in which it has competed (2001, 2005, 2009, 2011, 2013).

In 2013, led by tournament co-MVP Odyssey Sims, who went on to earn Gold as a member of the 2014 USA World Championship Team, the USA won by an average of 34.8 points per game and finished 6-0 to claim the Gold.
