Baylor phenom Brittney Griner and Chicago Sky rookie Courtney Vandersloot have been added to the U.S. women's basketball national pool.
Both players participated in the national team training camp this May in Las Vegas and impressed the coaching staff and selection committee.
The 6-foot-8 Griner is the only college player in the 26-player pool from which the 2012 Olympic team will be selected. She had another outstanding season at Baylor, leading the Lady Bears to the NCAA tournament regional finals.
Vandersloot is having a strong rookie season with the Sky. The Gonzaga graduate and No. 3 pick in the WNBA draft is among the league leaders in assists.
