UConn sophomore Breanna Stewart is one of six college players announced as members of the U.S. women's basketball national team pool Monday.

Joining Stewart in the pool were Connecticut teammates Stefanie Dolson and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis along with Baylor's Odyssey Sims, Maryland's Alyssa Thomas and Notre Dame's Kayla McBride.

The six college players complement Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Tamika Catchings and seven other members of the London Olympic team that won the gold medal. From the 33-player pool, the team will be chosen for the 2014 world championship and 2016 Olympic teams. The Americans won the worlds championship in 2010 and have five consecutive Olympic gold medals.

The U.S. most likely won't announce its roster for the world championship until late summer. The worlds start Sept. 27 and run through Oct. 5 in Turkey.
