Reports: Clark left off USA Basketball national team roster

Source: CBC News [Canadian state media]

“Caitlin Clark won’t be headed to the Paris Olympics, according to media reports. The person, who provided the full roster to The Associated Press, spoke on condition of anonymity Saturday because no official announcement has been made. The decision was first reported by The Athletic. Clark does have some international experience with USA Basketball at a younger level, but she couldn’t attend the national training camp in Cleveland after she was invited because she was leading Iowa to the Final Four. Clark finished her career as the NCAA’s Division I all-time scoring leader. … While Clark won’t be headed to Paris, the U.S. is expected to take five-time gold medallist Diana Taurasi for a sixth Olympics. Taurasi will be joined by Phoenix Mercury teammate Brittney Griner.” (06/08/24)
