Vandersloot turning heads for Team USA

Courtesy of Jayda Evans and her women's basketball blog at The Seattle Times I found this report from Team USA training camp on former Gonzaga star Courtney Vandersloot.

National team coach Geno Auriemma was also asked to evaluate Vandersloot, stating, "I'll tell you what, I must have heard from five or six coaches that watched practice and I'd say 'Who is the most surprising player at practice?' and they would tell you Courtney Vandersloot, every one of them, every one of them.

"That says a lot for somebody who really doesn't play that kind of game. She's not going up and down the floor going 'I just saw Sue do this, let me try it. I just saw D do this, let me try it.' She does exactly what she's good at and she does it well."

There is more from Slam Online about Chicago Sky players and Vandersloot, the Sky's No. 1 pick last month.
