NEW YORK (AP) — Rest, injury, the WNBA playoffs and retirement have left the U.S. women's basketball national team with a fresh look heading into training camp this week.
Seven members from the 2016 Olympic team likely won't be on the world cup roster, giving many younger players a chance to represent the U.S. later this month in Spain.
NEW YORK (AP) — Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi are back for another run with the U.S. women's basketball team.
The four-time Olympic gold medalists are among the 29 players chosen Thursday for the national team pool. Eleven members of the 2016 Olympic team that won a sixth consecutive gold medal for the Americans are in the group. The only player missing from that team is Tamika Catchings, who retired after the 2016 WNBA season.
MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (AP) — MacKenzie Gore, a pitcher drafted by the San Diego Padres, and Olympic hurdler and sprinter Sydney McLaughlin were honored as national prep athletes of the year on Tuesday night. McLaughlin is the first two-time winner since the awards began in 2003.
Tamika Catchings is busier now in retirement then during her stellar 15-year career with the Indiana Fever.
There's her new tea shop to run, her foundation and front office role with Pacers Sports Entertainment.
"When you play, it's like groundhog day," Catchings said in a phone interview this week. "It's the same thing over and over. Whereas now each day brings something different."
NEW YORK (AP) — Tamika Catchings and Swin Cash talked while they were on the players' union executive committee about life after basketball.
Both wanted to stay involved in the game that they had already given so much to as players, but weren't sure how with limited opportunities available beyond coaching. While it is commonplace for NBA franchises to hire former players in a variety of roles, it was extremely rare in the WNBA outside of coaching or being a general manager.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two philanthropists and a Team USA women's basketball medalist will be among those honored this year as "Living Legends" by the Indiana Historical Society.
Tamika Catchings, a former Indiana Fever star who won Olympic gold four times, will be feted alongside philanthropic leaders John and Sarah Lechleiter. Longtime Indiana Repertory Theatre executive artistic director Janet Allen and Hulman & Company President and CEO Mark Miles will also be honored.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana president Kelly Krauskopf initially built the fledgling Fever around home-state star Stephanie White.
Turns out, the hard-working rookie she drafted in 2001, Tamika Catchings, emerged as the face of the franchise.
On Sunday, the two most iconic players in Fever history — one now the coach — will say farewell to the WNBA in their final regular-season home game. Coach White is taking over the Vanderbilt program and Catchings is retiring.
No team has been more dominant at the Olympics over the past 20 years then the U.S. women's basketball team, winning five straight gold medals.
They'll try and keep that streak going in Rio.
"Training time is always our biggest challenge," said three-time gold medalist Sue Bird. "When you get to the medal rounds it's one and done, but we have a lot of experience in those games and look to continue our recent success."
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Pat Summitt was remembered as a loving mother, a loyal friend and a tireless fighter as well as a champion coach Thursday in a public ceremony honoring the person who built the Tennessee women's basketball dynasty.
"She was the epitome of what being great is all about," said Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings, one of the dozens of former Lady Volunteers who paid respects to Summitt at a "Celebration of Life" ceremony at Thompson-Boling...
