South Carolina coach Dawn Staley part of selection committee for U.S. women's basketball team

South Carolina coach Dawn Staley will be part of the selection committee for the U.S. women's basketball team for upcoming competitions this year, including the FIBA World Cup in September.

Staley, coach of the national team for the last Olympic cycle, led the United States to a gold medal at the Tokyo Games in August. She will be joined on the selection committee by two other former Olympians and WNBA players: Seimone Augustus and DeLisha Milton-Jones.

Augustus is now an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Sparks and Milton-Jones is head coach at Old Dominion.

Also on the committee are Staley's former national team assistant Jennifer Rizzotti, a former WNBA player and college coach who is now president of the Connecticut Sun, and WNBA head of league operations Bethany Donaphin.

USA Basketball also announced Wednesday the assistant coaches for new U.S. head coach Cheryl Reeve of the Minnesota Lynx. They are all fellow WNBA head coaches: Vickie Johnson (Dallas Wings), Curt Miller (Connecticut Sun), Mike Thibault (Washington Mystics) and James Wade (Chicago Sky).

All four will be court coaches during the Feb. 5-9 U.S. training camp in Washington, D.C. Johnson and Thibault will assist on the bench during the FIBA World Cup qualifying tournament from Feb. 10-12, while Miller and Wade will be court coaches and team scouts.

The qualifying tournament, which features the United States, Belgium and Puerto Rico, will also be in Washington, D.C., at the Entertainment and Sports Arena, which is home to the WNBA's Mystics.
