Three Huskies donned the USA red, white, and blue jersey this summer and all 3 returned home with GOLD!!!
First, Seniors Mel Thomas and Charde Houston helped the USA Pan Am team to a gold medal in the 2007 Pan Am Games down in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Thomas averaged 8.3 ppg in 16 mpg off the bench in 3 games and Houston averaged 4.8 ppg and 5.0 rpg in 14 mpg off the bench in 4 games (although she did have one start).
Then Freshman Maya Moore led the USA Under 19 team to a gold medal in the 2007 Under 19 World Championships for Women in Bratislava, Slovakia. Moore averaged a team leading 16.3 ppg to go along with 6.4 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.9 spg, and 0.9 bpg in 23.2 mpg. In the gold medal game, Moore had 19 pts., 13 rebs., 6 asts., and 3 stls. (all game highs).
