Just four days away from the start of the 2010 FIBA World Championship on Thursday in the Czech Republic, USA Basketball has released a 14-player group of finalists for its roster. Storm guard Sue Bird and forward Swin Cash both made the preliminary cut. After completing the WNBA Finals, Bird and Cash are scheduled to join their teammates in Europe tomorrow.
Bird is the starting point guard for the U.S. Cash’s roster spot is not as certain, though she has a chance to start at power forward as part of a smaller USA lineup. USA Basketball still has two more cuts to make to get down to 12 players. The final roster is due to FIBA on Wednesday.
