Former Maryland women’s basketball stars Brionna Jones and Alyssa Thomas recently won gold with Team USA in the FIBA World Cup in Sydney, Australia.
Thomas, a former All-American in 2012 with Maryland, took home the defensive MVP in the competition, totaling 19 steals in eight games. Thomas is a current WNBA star for the Connecticut Sun and just recently played in the WNBA finals before showing out in Sydney.

Brionna Jones was an All-American in 2017 with the Terps and also plays for the Connecticut Sun. Jones averaged over 10 points and five rebounds per game during the World Cup.
Dating back to 2006, this year’s run marked Team USA’s fourth straight FIBA World Cup title. It also qualifies Team USA for the 2024 Olympic games, and both Jones and Thomas have a good chance of competing for their first Olympic gold medals.
