DENVER — The U.S. women's basketball Olympic team will have a familiar feel for coach Geno Auriemma with five former UConn players on it.
Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, Swin Cash, Maya Moore and Tina Charles are on the team that will compete in London this summer. Joining them is two-time Olympic gold medalist Tamika Catchings. Returning for a second straight Olympics are Candace Parker, Seimone Augustus and Sylvia Fowles.
Lindsay Whalen and Angel McCoughtry will be competing in the Olympics for the first time.
The Americans only announced 11 of the 12 team members Friday, leaving one spot open. Baylor star Brittney Griner, who is competing at the Final Four this weekend in Denver, is considered a strong candidate.
The U.S. will be trying for its fifth straight gold medal.
